Most universities would fight for the chance to make it into the competitive brackets during March Madness. But database security vendor AppSec Inc this week drew up a bracket in which higher education institutions probably don't want to be included: the annual data breach bracket. Schools were seeded according to the size of breaches they experienced in 2011. Here are the contenders in the not-so-elite eight.

Saint Louis University

Breach Size: 12,800 records
Disclosed: Jan. 31, 2011
Details: A network hack gave attackers access to a database containing PII and personal health information for 12,000 employees and 800 students at the school. Information stolen included social security numbers, health test assessments, diagnoses and treatments.
