Study shows few Americans know about protecting themselves online

A study conducted by Pew Research Center had 10 different questions which were designed to test the knowledge of Americans on different technological topics. The topics ranged from cyber security, social media, etc. The results showed that only 2% of the people answered all the questions correctly while only 20% answered about 7 or more questions correctly.

After going through the quiz and being asked who was in the picture (Jack Doresey) as well as what two other apps are owned by Facebook (Insta and Whatsapp), the articles saying people don't know things are mostly irrelevant to actual CySec and taken out of context; people aren't aware of be technical aspects, but specifically those questions shouldn't even be in the quiz... It's sad when that's considered news. But most people online haven't a clue about security.

This is retarded; *most* of these are irrelevant to the majority of people's lives. But internet security is always an ongoing challenge to educate people about.
