Using the Maryland Attorney General’s website (linked above) or your own State’s Attorney General’s website, search for a major security breach that has been documented within the past three years. (look for a case that has affected more than 200 people). Then go use the library resources and see what you can find about this case.  Note: It may be easier to find information about cases that have occurred last year or the year before than it is to find information on the most recent events. 

Include in your summary (200-300 words):

  • How the breach was identified
  • Size of the breach (how many people/organizations were affected)
  • Scope of the breach (what was released)
  • How the breach occurred
  • Steps to be taken to resolve the breach
