10 Mar Malaysians Not Doing Enough to Protect Their Data Online
A recent study by global market agency Ipsos found that may not be taking adequate measures to protect their data online, even though they know that they are responsible for it.
Around 61% of the respondents said that they use the same passwords and PINs for multiple accounts and 31% of respondents do not review, or understand privacy policies pertaining to websites that they use. Only 36% store passwords and PINs in what they believe are secured locations, while 30% think that they do not have sufficient control over their personal data online.
Answers were taken from 996 consumers aged 18 to 74 from Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah and Sarawak.
