October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, an annual collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure we have the resources you need to maintain your security online.
Throughout October, we’ll be sending you tips on protecting your information and avoiding malicious attempts to extract your personal data.
Think you know about cyber security?
Last year, the Pew Research Center released its findings from an online survey it posted on cyber security knowledge. What Pew’s research shows is concerning: only one percent of respondents got all of the questions right, and less than half of the total pool of 1,055 respondents were able to answer a majority of the questions correctly. Many respondents also preferred selecting “not sure” in lieu of guessing an answer.
We have the same 10-question quiz from the Pew Research Center to test your knowledge. At the end of the quiz, we’ll provide the correct answers and link you to resources to better secure your accounts and identity.
