Victims of Data Breach Would Take Action!

A recent Unisys Security Index survey asked 1,000 individuals in the U.S. what they would do if they learned that their personal information, stored by an organization that they were doing business with, had been accessed through a security breach.  Nearly all said they would take some form of action including:

   87% would change their passwords

   76% would stop dealing with the company by closing their account

   65% would publicly expose the data breach

   53% would take legal action

   31% would maintain their account with the company, but not engage in online transactions

   Only 3% of the respondents said they would do nothing at all!
