Study Shows Most Proactive Countries for Privacy Settings
SOCIAL NETWORKINGOctober 28, 2010
The Unisys Security Index surveyed 10,575 consumers in 11 countries and found that 80 percent of social networking users in the U.S.--more than in any other country studied--said they regularly limit the personal information they post and restrict others' access to it, reports InformationWeek. Brazil and Germany were the next in line, with Brazil the most concerned with overall security, the report states. Patricia Titus, global chief information security officer at Unisys, says that the U.S. may be more proactive because it has "better reporting on social media issues here because Facebook is a U.S.-based company."
