We tested survey-takers’ knowledge across eight different risk areas. We then assigned them one of three different risk profiles, which indicate the survey-taker’s privacy and security awareness IQ. The three risk profiles—Risk, Novice, and Hero—are based on the number of proper behaviors correctly identified. The more correct behaviors an employee can identify, the less of a privacy and security risk they represent.

Overall, 88% of those surveyed lacked the awareness needed to avoid preventable privacy or security. incidents. What else did our the survey find? Read the executive summary to find out more.
