2019 Unisys Security Index

The Unisys Security Index measures concerns of consumers on issues related to national, personal, financial and Internet security around the world.

We surveyed eight security threats in 13 countries: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Germany, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines, U.K. and U.S.

Global security concern has increased to the highest level in 13 years of the Unisys Security Index. The 2019 Unisys Security Index stands at 175 (out of 300) globally, a two-point increase since 2018.

Highlights from the Unisys Security Index survey in Australia include:

  • Following a peak in 2017, last year’s small dip has been followed by a jump of four points in 2019, giving Australia a Unisys Index Security score of 155. This is lower than the global average of 175, but higher than all European countries included in the survey and 16 points above neighbouring New Zealand.
  • The top two concerns in Australia relate to Identity Theft: 57% of Australians are seriously (extremely/very) concerned about unauthorised access to or misuse of their personal information, and 56% are concerned about Bankcard Fraud.
  • When attending large-scale events, such as sports events or music festivals, Australians are equally fearful of having data stolen on public Wi-Fi (43% seriously concerned) as they are of a physical attack (43% seriously concerned).
  • Three in 10 (30%) think twice about attending large-scale events and 19% have changed plans to attend certain events or certain locations. A quarter (23%) still attend these events but will take extra precautions to secure mobile devices and wallets.
  • Australians are aware of listening technology on their personal devices, with 60% of smart device owners saying they started receiving social media posts and ads about a topic they recently talked about aloud. The growth in this type of technology is not welcomed: almost two thirds (62%) of those who have noticed it are concerned about it.
