Some consumers still unworried by data security issues

Jeremy Phillips

According to Information Age today, nine out of ten people in the United Kingdom believe that their personal data is not completely secure in the hands of the businesses they patronise, according to a survey by security provider RSA. 46% said that banks and retailers are not doing enough to protect their data, while 56% are more concerned about identity fraud and the security of their personal data than they were six months ago.

The surprising thing about this report is not that so many people are anxious about the security of their personal data as the correlative fact that 10% are presumably content, given the extensive media reportage of security leaks in the private and public sectors in recent months.
