Each year, we survey just more than a thousand individuals about their cybersecurity and privacy habits in the workplace. After analyzing the data, we compiled our findings into the State of Privacy and Security Awareness Report. The insights collected become the benchmark for year-over-year comparisons, industry, organization size, and seniority trends, and other valuable data points in the cybersecurity and privacy world.
The infographic below highlights a number of key takeaways from the full report, offering some quick stats on the larger cybersecurity and privacy landscape. Download our full report, jam-packed with data-driven insights, helpful tips, and recommendations, to help reduce the human-risk within your organization and inform a security awareness or privacy awareness program.
