Concern about personal information misuse tops poll

Unisys has been conducting a regular survey of public perceptions towards security since June 2006. The December 2007 results show a moderate change since August last year, with the largest changes occurring in the number of people extremely or very concerned about a serious health epidemic and their ability to meet essential financial obligations (and this before the darker days of January).

Of particular interest is that the top two areas of concern are unauthorised access to, or misuse of personal information, and other people obtaining credit card/debit card details.

Number three? Australia's national security in relation to war/terrorism.

Full details are contained in the December 2007 report which includes state by state breakdown of some responses.
