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 remains at 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 the U.S. include:

  • The U.S. Unisys Security Index is measured at 165, considered a serious level of concern and the highest among the seven developed1 countries surveyed.
  • In 2019, Americans are more concerned about Identity Theft and Bankcard Fraud than National Security. Nearly two-thirds of U.S. respondents (63%) are seriously concerned (extremely/very concerned) about the unauthorized access to or misuse of their personal information, and more than half (58%) are seriously concerned about other people obtaining and using their credit or debit card details.
  • Personal Safety concerns also rose by five percentage points in 2019, with 42% of Americans now seriously concerned.
  • Large majorities of Americans express some level of concern when attending large-scale events, such as sporting events or music festivals, where they are just as afraid of having their data accessed by hackers when they use public Wi-Fi as they are of physical criminal attacks. More than one in five (22%) Americans say they have canceled plans or considered canceling plans to attend large-scale public events due to concerns about physical attacks and the safety of their data.
