According to Unisys, identity theft is a leading concern of Americans, with seven of ten US citizens seriously concerned about this issue. National security represents the top area of concern for Americans, with two-thirds of US citizens seriously concerned about war and terrorism. This increase is possibly due to higher concerns related to the war or terrorism, identity theft and bankcard fraud, but concern increased for all aspects of security.
The recent Sony PlayStation Network security breach is an example, and also the hacking of European Space Agency (ESA) website. Unisys compiled an excellent infographic displaying all the major security concerns in United States of America.
