A new U.K. Cyber Survey found that only 15 percent of respondents know how to protect themselves from security concerns online, according to an article by Security magazine.
Conducted by the U.K.’s National Cybersecurity Center, the survey interviewed more than 1,300 people over the age of 16 about their attitudes toward and awareness of cybersecurity.
From the article: “Prevalence of always/often taking protective behaviors ranges from 21 percent saving passwords using a password manager, to 75 percent who use password, passcode or PIN to unlock devices.” The primary security concern is “protecting privacy and avoiding money being stolen (52 percent and 51 percent respectively, thinking about these ‘a lot’ when online).”
Findings also include the following:
- 46 percent feel information about staying secure online is confusing.
- 70 percent of respondents believe they will be a cybercrime victim within the next two years.
- 34 percent rely on friends and family to help with cybersecurity.
