Welcome to DBD. DBD was conceived as an independent resource for anyone to research and learn about Data Breaches and the Cyber Security threats that we all face in today's ever-evolving digital world. In recent months we have been approached by parties who have sought to acquire and commercialise us. We are therefore reiterating our pledge to you, our readers and supporters, that we intend to remain independent and we are not for sale. We are however, committed to expanding our partner network across the globe and welcome all correspondence from interested parties. Thank you for your support. Stay safe. :)
