People more concerned about social network than financial data: Microsoft survey
Microsoft has recently conducted an online usage and security survey to find out more about consumer needs, and surprisingly, while 74 per cent of online users worry about the hacking of their social networking account, only 16 per cent are concerned about the loss of their personal data, while just five per cent are worried about credit card fraud.
According to the Microsoft survey, nearly one fourth of Indians (over 23 per cent) have been victims of cyber crime. Of these people, 67 per cent lost their personal data and 19 per cent had their email hacked. However, according to the survey, the majority of users are concerned about the hacking of their social networking account, and while 67 per cent of cyber crime is about the theft of personal data, only 16 per cent are taking steps to protect their information.
According to Microsoft, there is widespread understanding of the importance and use of anti-virus software, and the majority of users, some 60 per cent, now have some form of free anti-virus running. However, the survey also revealed that the users largely believe that setting up an anti-virus is all they need to do to secure their computers.
The survey undertaken by Microsoft India was designed to better understand the online security needs of Indian consumers. The survey hosted on Microsoft India’s ‘Windows and Me’ Facebook page and garnered responses from over thousand 1000 consumers.
