The State of Cyber-Stress

A study on Americans’ and Canadians’ stress levels and mindsets about cybersecurity.

Kaspersky Lab conducted a survey of over 2,000 internet users in the United States and Canada to gain insight into the perceptions of consumers regarding cybersecurity, including people’s stress levels about data breaches and passwords, and what actions they take to protect their data from online threats. The results of this research revealed:

  • The stress levels of consumers relating to digital security and technology
  • How many people have experienced a cyberattack on their internet-connected devices
  • How people feel about businesses or people close to them having access to their data
  • What consumers and businesses can do to reduce their cyber-stress
