Mail Security Incident Statistics
RaySecur’s Dangerous Mail Data Center is an open-source database for tracking in near real-time dangerous mail incidents.

The Dangerous Mail Data Center compiles incident statistics from official sources including the US Postal Inspection Service (USPIS), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and the START database managed by the University of Maryland.  In addition to official sources, the data center is updated daily with incidents reported in the public domain to provide our customers with the most timely and accurate information to make informed security decisions.
