The world as we know it cannot run without the transfer of personal data, all of which needs to be kept secure.
No matter the type, all personal data has one thing in common: a real, live human will be responsible for its safekeeping at some point. Just think of the armies of clerks, bank tellers, IT staff, HR workers, etc., who handle personal information as part of their jobs.
Even if it never leaves a secure server in some distant warehouse, humans are responsible for keeping out those who would exploit it.
With this much personal data in the hands of everyday people, we wanted
to know: What does the general public know about data privacy?
We polled just more than 1,000 members of the employee U.S. public on a variety of data privacy best practices and asked what they would do in real-life scenarios where sensitive data was at stake. We pulled out the five most noteworthy results and built them into an easy-to-read infographic that breaks the key points down into question-and-answer format. Want the full report?
