Chubb Survey Finds Disconnect Between U.S. Consumers’ Awareness and Actions Toward Cybersecurity

(STL.News) – A new study from Chubb finds that when it comes to cybersecurity, Americans are concerned, but not necessarily prepared to take the appropriate—and necessary—preventative steps to protect themselves from a cyber attack.

According to Chubb’s Third Annual Cyber Report, which examined individuals’ comprehension of cyber risks and the steps they are taking to protect themselves, complacency seems to have taken hold: eight-in-10 Americans continue to be concerned about a cyber breach, yet only 41% use cybersecurity software and 31% regularly change their passwords.  These numbers are virtually unchanged from 2018.
