Average person stumbles onto 6 suspicious websites a day

With every keystroke and search on the Internet, the amount of information-and potential threats-we can have at our fingertips is infinite. But even in 2022, how much do we really know about cybersecurity? 

A recent survey of 2,000 U.S. adults shows that while 70 percent feel knowledgeable about cybersecurity, the average person still stumbles upon a suspicious online site or social media account 6.5 times a day.

Results show only 39 percent know that suspicious sites can spread malware and viruses in their computer. More than half (54%) are unaware of the difference between active and passive cybersecurity threats. Passive cybersecurity threats attack your devices without you even taking an action.
