Microsoft poll says 75% of Russians face Internet risks in 2017
MOSCOW, Feb 6 (PRIME) -- About 75% of Russians have faced Internet risks at least once in a lifetime, Elza Ganeyeva, manager for work with state organizations at Microsoft Russia, said on Monday at the Cyber Security Forum, quoting results of the companyТs 2017 Digital Civility Index (DCI) research.
УThe risk of unwanted contact was the most widely-spread among Russians,Ф Ganeyeva said, adding that the number of respondents choosing this risk rose to 65% in 2017 from below 60% in 2016.
The poll said that teenagers, or 77% of the respondents, encountered aggressive behavior in the Internet.
УThese results are explained by a low level of online civility of teenagers themselves, who treat others with respect more seldom than the others. At the same time, young people are able better than the others to protect their interests and interests of other people. The baby-boomers generation (people at the age of 50Ц74 years) demonstrated the highest level of civility in the network,Ф the research read.
Russians encountered sexual risks in the Internet less than citizens of other countries: 20% against the worldТs average of 31%.
