Some of the data can be found under:

And more under:

The main figures are:

 

·        “84% of internet users use IT security software for protection”

·        31% caught a computer infection (it is noticeable that the number is potentially higher regarding that this one includes only the one that have been detected and reported)

·        14% of parents use a parental control web filtering mechanism

What do you think of these figures? Would you want to highlight any other ones?

 

If you interested in this issue, please do have a look at the recent interview with Pia Lang conducted on February 8, 2011, in the light of the Safer Internet Day 2011.

 

Thanks for reading!
