Today on the front page of USA Today, the main article showed that 500 million records have been stolen in the last 12 months. To put that in perspective, there are 310 million people in the United States, 35 million people in Canada, and 120 million people in Mexico. So more records were stolen in the last 12 months than for each individual living in the US, Canada, and Mexico.

And now Staples is investigating a possible breach of credit/debit card data:
