2017 State of Privacy & Security Awareness
Our first-ever State of Privacy and Security Awareness report last year found that 88% of respondents lacked the awareness to stop preventable cyber incidents related to eight common privacy and security threat vectors that exploit human vulnerabilities.

This year: only 70% of employees fell into same categories (ranked as either a "Risk" or "Novice" based on their quiz scores) in our 2017 survey, which also means just 30% of employees (ranked as a "Hero" based on their quiz scores) are truly prepared to defend their organizations against the threat scenarios that were presented. An improvement to be sure, but also a sign that more work needs to be done to promote security and privacy best practices.

Overall, behavioral improvements were seen in five out off eight surveyed threat vectors. This highlights the work being done in every industry at organizations of all sizes to mitigate risk arising from human behavior, but is also indicative of the gulf that exists between where organizations currently are, in terms of their cybersecurity preparedness, and where they need to be.
