Most of us do take web security seriously. Annual revenue for security software has reached a high of over £17 billion globally for Windows systems, and around 75% of all PC’s are protected with antivirus software. But PCs are no longer the biggest arena for cybercriminals. As more of us access the internet via mobiles, user naivety and weaknesses in mobile security are being increasingly exploited.
User confidence in smartphone security is low
Smartphone users are finding their data targeted more and more, with a huge 66% of users admitting to suffering some form of data-related harm, and only 27% of the users feel in control of their own personal data. Users are also increasingly wary about downloading apps, and two-thirds have admitted to abandoning the purchase of an app due to privacy concerns.
