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.

Global highlights from the Unisys Security Index survey include:

  • Increasing internet security concerns are largely behind the rise in this year’s Unisys Security Index. Nearly two-thirds (63%) of consumers report they are seriously concerned about the threat of Viruses/Hacking, with more than half (57%) seriously concerned about Online Shopping and Banking.
  • For the third consecutive year, Identity Theft and Bankcard Fraud continue to be the two most pressing concerns worldwide, exceeding reported concern related to threats like war, terrorism and natural disasters.

Following large public attacks around the world in the last year, the survey found that global security concern is high among consumers about attending large-scale events like the World Cup or concert festivals. Consumers reported they are as fearful of having data stolen at these events as they are of being physically harmed.

  • Consequently, about a quarter of respondents (28%) have changed their plans to attend certain large-scale events, and nearly four in 10 (39%) said they would “think twice” about attending. A quarter of those who are not changing their plans reported they will take extra precautions about securing mobile devices and wallets.
