Survey: Breaches Spur High Level of Concern
DATA LOSS—NEW ZEALANDMay 30, 2013
The Unisys Security Index has found that “New Zealanders show a high level of concern about loss of their private data,” COMPUTERWORLD reports. While overall concern about security matters decreased, “76 percent of Kiwis are concerned about data breaches at banks and financial institutions compared to only 57 percent concerned about health organisations including hospitals and doctors,” according to the Unisys report. Concerns about government data loss also ranked high—63 percent—“following a number of well-publicised accidental releases of data from ACC, the Earthquake Commission, the Ministry of Social Development and Inland Revenue,” the report states.
