This is good news, and frankly, I’m a bit surprised. Happily.
According to IBM Security’s new “Future of Identity Study,” users of both mobile and desktop are wide awake to what’s happening with each new high profile breach, and it’s made them change their priorities. Strong security and privacy are now at the forefront of the average user’s concerns, especially when it comes to banking, financial, online marketplaces, and their email accounts.
It’s sad that it’s taken so much bad news to get us to this point, but it’s good to see that people are taking security and privacy more seriously. It’ll be interesting to see if that carries over into public policy (*cough* FBI *cough) and requests for tech companies to put all of that at risk.
