This is the event data we collected on news reports about compromised personal records from 1980-2006. The data was used in several articles and book chapters. While there is no formal code book we thought it was time to share the data and the best summary of our definition of cases and variables is the article “A Case of Mistaken Identity? News Accounts of Hacker, Consumer, and Organizational Responsibility for Compromised Digital Records” from the Journal of Computer Mediated Communication.
Here is a link to the raw data Compromised Personal Records as an Excel Spreadsheet.
