Online Survey: Cybersecurity and Privacy in Covid-19

The 2020 pandemic created an unprecedented communications and interactions environment where the dependency on digital information and security was of paramount importance. People were forced to work from home without much prior notice. Work/organisational data was migrated from secure systems to personal devices. Meetings went from face-to-face physical events to virtual interactions via web-basd video conferencing and teleconferencing software and applications. Families relied on digital means of communication to maintain social ties. The elderly found themselves needing to adapt to such means of communication to keep in contact with loved ones. Citizens may have been asked to share their location and health data via mobile applications in order to safeguard themselves and their community. The combination of these requirements and behaviours led to paradigm shifts which raised weakness and threats which hitherto had not existed. Data privacy became even more sensitive.

The objective of this survey is to understand the change in social interactions and at the same time to understand society's acceptance of the social good of people giving up some of their privacy (as part of our Cyberwatching.eu project - your personal details will not be asked for and only the information from the survey will be stored). The results will be collected and analysed in the deliverable 3.5 (Risk and recommendations on cybersecurity services) to be submitted on February 2021.


The final review of the CS-AWARE project took place on 25 November 2020 and was a success.
