Americans don’t trust institutions to protect their personal data, but neglect cybersecurity in own lives – Pew Report
The Pew Research Center recently released an in depth report analyzing how the average American feels about cybersecurity. The study consisted of several surveys regarding how Americans feel on certain cyber issues. The report says that 64% of Americans have personally been involved in a major data breach. As a result, about half of Americans do not trust either the government or other websites to be able to protect their personal information. Perhaps not surprisingly, the report also revealed that many Americans do not follow good cyber security practices in their own lives, particularly with mobile devices. The report also suggests that cyber security is not a top priority for many Americans. The full report is included below.
