21 Dec Study Says Lots of Users Still Fail at Basic Cyber Hygiene
A recent online study by cybersecurity company Tenable showed that a vast majority of consumers still fail to take basic steps to protect their data and identities online.
Of the 94% of respondents who knew of the recent string of global data breaches, around 44% still do not use a password to secure their computers, while 55% did not use a PIN to secure their mobile phones. Around 75% said they do not use two-factor authentication, and 32% said that reports on the latest data breaches did not discourage them from using public WiFi.
Tenable CMO Jennifer Johnson said that their study, quite surprisingly, found that the recent high-profile hacking incidents did nothing to prompt users to change their cyber habits.
