Data Security Breach Statistics

I am currently working on putting together a security training curriculum for my employer.  I needed to do find some reliable statistics regarding number of data breaches, total records lost etc. pertaining to my employers industry.  I found three good resources for such statistics:
  1. Privacy Rights Clearinghouse
  2. DataLoss DB
  3. Identity Theft Resource Center
Of course, one the best resource is the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report.

Update 7/22/2011
If you need to estimate approximate cost associated with a data breach, a good starting point is Symantec's Data Breach Calculator (in partnership with Ponemon Institute).
