Get Safe Online :: Students at greatest risk from online fraud - 0 views

  • “Our study set out to establish whether online security factors vary according to age, gender, geography and occupation. Online criminals operate on a mass scale so are indiscriminate about who they target. Whether they are successful or not depends largely on two factors: firstly, how good we are at securing our computers; and secondly, how much we avoid risky activities and behaviours while we’re using the internet.
  •  
    Internet users in full-time education (2) are almost twice as confident online as other internet users - more than half (51%) consider themselves 'very' internet literate, compared to the national average of 26%. Despite this, they are the most dismissive of the risk of online crime and of the importance of basic security tools (such as anti-virus software) in protecting them against it.
