91% of people trust business, but 97% don’t
Statistics – don’t you just love ‘em?
“91% of people trust business to keep data safe despite rise in breaches” is the headline announcement from Varonis today.
“Only 3% say that their data is very secure with social networks and 11% say the same about online retailers,” concluded the Economist Intelligence Unit earlier this month.
Now I’m no mathematician, but this adds up to just one thing for me: don’t believe anything anyone tells you – and that includes me. Make up your own mind because everyone else has an agenda that may not be in your best interests.
Hint: always err on the side of distrust; you may be pleasantly surprised, but you won’t be disappointed, and you’ll almost certainly be right.
