27 Jul Research Reveals Asia-Pacific Users Think Online Data Lacks Protection
In a report last Wednesday, Internet Society (ISOC) released a survey that largely details how Asia-Pacific users are wary that their data isn’t properly protected online.
The survey showed that 90% of users in the region were not confident about sharing credit card numbers online, and 60% of those users also said they lacked the right knowledge and equipment to secure their online privacy.
When it comes to user behavior and regulations, 38% said laws influenced how they used the internet, whether the experience turned out negatively or positively.
ISOC Asia-Pacific director Rajnesh Singh stated that the research reveals the need for private and public spheres to help each other in developing strong protection systems for networks.
The survey highlights the importance of educating users and how crucial it is for governments to employ digital transformation efforts that support data protection.
