On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the breaches data set which pertains to Cyber Security Breaches . The breaches data set is found in the Ecdat R package. You can load the breaches data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("breaches"). This will load the data into a variable called breaches. If R says the breaches data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("Ecdat") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the breaches R data set. The size of this file is about 268,593 bytes.


Cyber Security Breaches

Description

data.frame of cyber security breaches involving health care records of 500 or more humans reported to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as of June 27, 2014.

Usage

data(breaches)

Format

A data.frame with 1055 observations on the following 24 variables:

Number

integer record number in the HHS data base

Name_of_Covered_Entity

factor giving the name of the entity experiencing the breach

State

Factor giving the 2-letter code of the state where the breach occurred. This has 52 levels for the 50 states plus the District of Columbia (DC) and Puerto Rico (PR).

Business_Associate_Involved

Factor giving the name of a subcontractor (or blank) associated with the breach.

Individuals_Affected

integer number of humans whose records were compromised in the breach. This is 500 or greater; U.S. law requires reports of breaches involving 500 or more records but not of breaches involving fewer.

Date_of_Breach

character vector giving the date or date range of the breach. Recodes as Dates in breach_start and breach_end.

Type_of_Breach

factor with 29 levels giving the type of breach (e.g., "Theft" vs., "Unauthorized Access/Disclosure", etc.)

Location_of_Breached_Information

factor with 41 levels coding the location from which the breach occurred (e.g., "Paper", "Laptop", etc.)

Date_Posted_or_Updated

Date the information was posted to the HHS data base or last updated.

Summary

character vector of a summary of the incident.

breach_start

Date of the start of the incident = first date given in Date_of_Breach above.

breach_end Date of the end of the incident or NA if only one date is given in Date_of_Breach above. year integer giving the year of the breach

Details

The data primarily consists of breaches that occurred from 2010 through early 2014 when the extract was taken. However, a few breaches are recorded including 1 from 1997, 8 from 2002-2007, 13 from 2008 and 56 from 2009. The numbers of breaches from 2010 - 2014 are 211, 229, 227, 254 and 56, respectively. (A chi-square test for equality of the counts from 2010 through 2013 is 4.11, which with 3 degrees of freedom has a significance probability of 0.25. Thus, even though the lowest number is the first and the largest count is the last, the apparent trend is not statistically significant under the usual assumption of independent Poisson trials.)

The following corrections were made to the file:

How To Import a Dataset
  1. Create a Picostat account or login with your existing picostat account (see above).
  2. Go to the dataset import page.
  3. Select a license for the dataset. The default is "No License" but allows Picostat to host a copy of the dataset as per the privacy policy. You may wish to uncheck the "Public" option if you do not wish to share your dataset with others. R Datasets that come by downloading R have a GNU General Public License v3.0 which may also be selected from the Picostat dropdown.
  4. Enter a title for the dataset
  5. Choose a dataset input methods. Available options include:
    • Random data - this populates your dataset with random numbers between 0 and 100. You can specify the number of rows and columns for the random dataset.
    • CSV, TSV or TXT file - you will have the option upload a file within the current file size limit and also specify the header and whether or not the dataset is a contingency table. With contingency tables, the first column becomes a label for the rows. Currently with Picostat, there is limited support for contingency tables. Choose "Yes" to the Header option if the first line of the data contains titles for the rows. Also choose the Separator for the dataset. A separator is what breaks the data up. In some cases, a comma would separate data values in a row. You will also have the option to add documentation in the form keyboarded text and also uploaded documentation attachments. You can also specify a license for the documentation.
    • Copy and Paste. This selection contains many of the same fields as importing a file with an additional textarea to copy and paste data to.
    • Empty dataset. Start with a blank dataset and manually add data with the Picostat dataset editor.
    • Excel file - Choose this option if you would like to convert your Excel spreadsheet to a Picostat dataset. With this selection, you will have the option to specify whether to use the first row in the Excel file as column names. If you would like to choose a specific sheet to use, you can also specify with entering its name in the text input.
    • sas7bdat file - SAS is a powerful statistical software package that has its own proprietary file format. Choose this option if you are importing a SAS file.
    • SPSS sav file - SPSS is a statistical package owned by IBM. You can import SPSS files by choosing this option.
  6. Choose whether or not the dataset contains a header. Some of the dataset input methods allow you to specify whether or not a Header exists on the file. Sometimes dataset files contain a Header as the first row which names the columns. If you choose "Yes" to this, the first row in the dataset will become column headers.
  7. You can also add documentation and specify a documentation license. This can be used to help explain your dataset to those unfamiliar with it.
  8. Choose whether or not to upload an supporting attachments.
  9. Pass the captcha. To prevent spam submissions, Picostat has a captcha which is used to prevent automated submissions by bots.
  10. Choose a privacy setting for the dataset. You can also specify whether or not the dataset is Public. If you uncheck this setting, only you and the Picostat administrator will be able to view the dataset.
  11. Submit the form. Once the form is validated, you will be redirected to the dataset homepage where you can choose to edit or perform statistical operations on the dataset.
