Kaspersky Cyber securityIndex : First cybersecurity directory

Security company Kaspersky Lab has launched the Kaspersky Cybersecurity Index to measure the current cyber threat levels that internet users face. 
•    The Kaspersky Cybersecurity Index is based on this data, collected from thousands of users across the globe. 
•    The Cybersecurity Index, described as 21-29-60 shows that one-in-five users (21%) currently believe he or she is threatened by anything online. 
•    At the same time, almost one third of users (29%) have fallen victim to cybercriminal schemes 
•    Only 60% of users have installed security solutions on all the devices they use to access the Internet. 
•    The Index demonstrates that, today, many users underestimate cyberthreats even after facing them, which has an impact on their security online. 
•    This was based on a a survey carried out in 21 countries in August 2016. 
•    The index will combine three indicators which will be measured every six months to assess the level of risk. 
•    The 'concerned' indicator shows the percentage of people who believe they may be targeted by a cyber attack.
