Introducing the 2017 Unisys Security Index™!
Author(s): Ann Sung Ruckstuhl, Posted on June 20th, 2017
I am pleased to announce the results of the 2017 Unisys Security Index™ – the only recurring snapshot of security concerns conducted globally. Initially launched 10 years ago, the index provides an ongoing, statistically-robust measure of consumer concern about security.
The Unisys Security Index is a calculated score covering peoples’ changing attitudes in four categories: national, financial, internet and personal security. The 2017 index is based on online surveys conducted with more than 13,000 adults. The outcomes include global findings, as well as those that zero in on security views and concerns in each of the 13 countries in which we conducted the research around the world.
The Unisys Security Index highlights our continued commitment to providing the most comprehensive benchmark of consumer concerns across national, financial, internet and personal safety, privacy and security topics, and recognizes that the most effective solutions are those formed through collaboration and with people in mind.
On the 10th anniversary of the Unisys Security Index, the 2017 results show that security concerns abound – in fact, they are higher than ever before.
(300 point scale: 0 = Not Concerned, 100 = Somewhat Concerned, 200 = Very Concerned, 300 = Extremely Concerned)
The results raise questions that are on consumers’ minds and act as a third-party-validated measure of their safety and security concerns. Please take a few moments and check out the Unisys Security Index site. From this site, you can access survey results and learn from the perspectives of our many subject matter experts in all areas of security. The findings are presented globally, as well as per country.
Let me know what you think, and look for new results on related topics from the 2017 Unisys Security Index in the coming weeks.
