Who's Getting Hacked?




Forrest Carman from Owen Media passed along something fun I think might interest you. IT training company CBT Nuggets just analyzed the responses of over 2000 survey respondents, testing knowledge about online security.

Some interesting results:

  • Apple users are 22% more likely to be victims of online identity theft than Windows users.
  • People who identify as “tech savvy” are 18% more likely to be victims of online identity theft than those who don’t.
  • Those who have PhDs are more likely to be victims of online identity theft than high school graduates.
  • Millennials are less likely than their older counterparts to have secure information stolen online, although this may be because they haven’t risked having their personal information compromised for as long as the other age groups.
