A majority of those surveyed by Blumberg Capital believe they know more about cybersecurity than President Trump and their mothers.
To a group of survey respondents, it seems if they can’t see cybersecurity, then it must not exist. Sixty percent of respondents to a survey by Blumberg Capital, an early-stage venture capital firm, believe that they have never been a victim of cyber hacking or are unaware if they have.
But it seems they wouldn’t know a cybercrime if it came up and bit them. Forty-five percent of respondents admitted to not being able to recognize a cyber crime unless contacted by a vendor or law enforcement authorities.
