7 in 10 educators favour personal mobile data over public networks

70% of respondents remain wary of unknown links and attachments.

Nearly 70% prefer using their own mobile data as a precautionary measure instead of relying on public networks, according to Kapersky’s latest white paper.

The five-week study, conducted jointly by Kaspersky and Associate Professor Jiow Hee Jhee from the Singapore Institute of Technology, involved157 educators from India, Singapore, and the Philippines.

It also revealed that 70% of respondents remain suspicious of unknown links and attachments, exercising caution when encountering such content from unfamiliar sources.

Regarding password security, 85% of educators acknowledged the risk of their passwords being guessed or cracked, whilst 90% expressed concern about potential future attacks on their digital devices. 

Despite recognising the serious threat posed by data theft resulting from compromised passwords, close to 90% of educators surveyed downplayed the potential severity of password breaches, including the theft of personal data.

“With the dangers of cyber threats remaining a pressing issue, it is imperative for educators to possess adequate knowledge of safe cyber hygiene practices and gain an understanding of the repercussions of incautious actions online,” said Trishia Octaviano, Academic Affairs Manager for Asia Pacific at Kaspersky.
