Airlines and airports are confronted every day with a complex set of security concerns. Because their systems contain credit card data, they need to provide protection against identity theft and bankcard fraud.
As a company that builds security into all we do like no other, Unisys takes seriously both the bonds we form with our clients in addressing their physical and cyber security needs and our social responsibility to help ensure consumer safety and security.
I’m pleased to announce that we have begun to roll out Wave 2 of the 2017 Unisys Security Index™ -- the only recurring snapshot of consumer security concerns conducted globally. In Wave 1 we gauged the general security concerns of more than 13,000 consumers in 13 countries worldwide. In Wave 2, we measured security concerns on one of the fastest-growing IT phenomena of our time: the Internet of Things (IoT).
Today, 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, and this year, shows that security concerns abound – in fact, they are higher than ever before.
Security is at the forefront of everything Unisys does – not just with particular products or services, but rather that it is integrated into all of our solutions. Today’s launch of our Unisys Security Index™ results reinforces our company vision: to enhance peoples’ lives through digital security as well as our commitment to security – both internally and externally with our clients.
Financial institutions generally have good security. But with fraudsters and cybercriminals becoming more sophisticated in their attacks, it’s imperative for banks and financial services providers to be smarter than their adversaries. Unisys recently released the results of its Security Index, which is an annual global survey which measures how concerned consumers are about different aspects of security in the industry.
The 2014 Unisys Security Index survey shows that U.S. consumers have a somewhat blasé attitude toward online security. This might be because businesses and banks are shielding them from losses associated with cyber attacks.
