A recent report from Pew Research Center indicates gaps in cyber-security awareness, but finds that younger users are more likely to have a better understanding than older users.
The report, issued last month, relies on data gathered last summer from more than 1,000 adult internet users in the U.S. The on-line survey consisted of 13 questions about cyber-security topics, including VPNs, two-factor authentication, and encryption.
The median respondent answered five of the 13 questions correctly. Twenty-percent answered more than eight questions correctly, and only one percent obtained a perfect score.
