Our recently released User Risk Report offers key insights into the global cybersecurity habits of working adults, including their use of technical safeguards on personal systems and devices. We surveyed 6,000 technology users across six countries — the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, and Australia — to determine how their personal actions could introduce cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the organizations they work for.

The results show that users’ WiFi and virtual private network (VPN) use remain suspect. Of particular concern is the fact that home WiFi networks are often left fully unprotected, opening the door for remote workers to be compromised — and for their employers to be compromised in turn.
