Kaspersky Lab Survey Finds Cybersecurity a Top Source of Stress for Consumers in North America
April 29, 2019 / Business Wire
Today, Kaspersky Lab released a new survey report, which revealed that 75% of people in the U.S. and Canada are stressed by the number of passwords they have to manage. The research also found that facing a cybersecurity incident is one of the most stressful situations modern consumers can face. When presented with a variety of scenarios, two-in-three people (66%) ranked having their bank account compromised as the most stressful – more than the number of people who selected losing their job, being in a minor car accident or missing a flight. One year after its May 2018 study, Kaspersky Lab is revisiting the issue of cybersecurity-related stress, based on the results of a new survey of internet users in the U.S. and Canada. The survey report, “Cyber-Stress, Refreshed,” examines how consumers’ stress levels have changed in the last year, whether these feelings influence their online behavior, and how technology knowledge affects cyber-stress.
