APAV has presented the conclusions of Barometer APAV/Intercampus on “Population’s Perception on Cibersecurity. The survey on cybersecurity was developed under a partnership between APAV and Intercampus, which resulted in a questionnaire to test the Portuguese population.
The information was collected through online interviews, between 27th February and 8th March 2020. The survey consists mainly in close questions on, for example, internet access frequency, online activities, perceptions on cybersecurity, perceptions on cybercrime and support structures for cybercrime victims.
Some relevant conclusions:
- 24% of the respondents consider to be very well informed about the cybercrime risks;
- Only 10% of the respondents state to have knowledge of any Portuguese support structure for cybercrime victims;
- 17% of the respondents know about Safe Internet Line, and 7% of those have contacted or know someone that contacted the Safe Internet Line;
The Barometer APAV/Intercampus conclusions were presented on 23rd April, at 17h, via live transmission on APAV’s Instagram. Ricardo Estrela, manager of Safe Internet Line, and Clara Francisco, from Intercampus, talked about the topic.
