Unisys Security Index rises as Australians express concern over threat of national and Internet security

Australia’s only barometer of security issues has recorded a significant rise in public concerns about the threat of national attack as well as Internet, financial and personal security.

The May 2007 Unisys Security Index for Australia has risen 18 points compared to the December 2006 results and now stands at 134.

The national Newspoll survey was undertaken between the 16 and 18 March 2007 and recorded responses from 1204 telephone interviews.

Australians’ top three concerns remain the same, being the threat of identity theft, financial fraud and war/terror.

All areas recorded significant increases in the number of people concerned about their security:

• National security up 20 points to 144
• Financial security up 17 points to 137
• Internet security up 22 points to 127
• Personal security up 15 points to 129

“Since December, it is clear that Australians have become more concerned about their security, be it the threat of terrorist attack or identity theft,” said Andrew Barkla, Vice President Unisys Asia-Pacific.

“What is not clear is a single source to which the results can be attributed. Rather, the significant rise in concern appears to reflect a cumulative response to a range of issues.”

These include:

• Increased activity and reporting of identity theft
• Greater aviation security measures in response to terror threats
• The ongoing Iraq and Afghanistan operations
• Rising interest rates

Headline results include:

• 54 % of Australians now extremely or very concerned about war or terror attack – up 9 %
• 58 % now extremely or very concerned about credit card / debit card fraud – up 5 %
• One third of Australians extremely or very concerned about their ability to meet essential financial obligations – up 8 %
• 62 % of Australians extremely or very concerned about unauthorised access to or misuse of personal information – up 7 %
• 42 % extremely or very concerned about computer security in relation to viruses and unsolicited emails – up 11 %
The Unisys Security Index provides a unique insight into the attitudes of Australians on a wide range of security related issues.

Unisys on Security
Organisations and governments today confront potential security threats that didn’t exist a decade ago, or, if they did, were not thought of as credible. The issues and potential solutions are complex. The Unisys approach to security is differentiated from that of our competitors in that we take a broader set of political, economic and consumer forces into account. Our approach to security is beyond ‘bits and bytes’ to reflect a multi-dimensional security ‘ecosystem’, with many inter-related interests, and in which the most effective solutions are going to be those formed through collaboration between stakeholders - business, government and consumers.
