When PwC surveys digital security, few Swedes take measures to reduce their digital vulnerability, despite the increasing cyber threat.
A new survey by PwC Sweden, published in Aktuell Säkerhet on August 28, shows that a high proportion of Swedes do not take adequate security measures for their computers. 40% of respondents stated that they had not backed up their computer in the past year, while a third admitted that they had not updated their virus protection. In addition, 60% of respondents stated that they do not change their passwords regularly, which according to PwC increases digital vulnerability. At the same time, 65% of Swedes feel that cyber threats to Sweden are increasing. In addition, the survey shows that as few as 16% believe that Swedish authorities can withstand a cyber attack. According to PwC, it is worrying that confidence in the cyber security of government agencies is so low and that confidence-building measures are needed, in parallel with additional resources and training within the Swedish authorities.
