New Delhi, June 22, 2022: Tsaaro, India’s leading data privacy company, which also operates India’s only data privacy institute, Tsaaro Academy, has released its latest report on the state of teenage data security in the internet world. The report is part of a 4 series research paper that includes data security among professionals, children, the elderly and finally adolescents covering the macro aspect of the data threat in our human journey.
The report highlights that teens are increasingly sharing personal information on social media sites, a trend that is likely due to changes in the platforms teens use as well as changing standards for privacy. share. 64% of teens admitted to being lenient when transacting online, believing the web to be 100% secure, making them easy prey to phishing. Over 65% of teens are unsure or think they have been compromised many times in the internet world.
Interestingly, 66% of teens also feel that not enough has been done to educate or protect them against data breach or cybersecurity. Additionally, 74% think the need for strong laws is a must for a young country like India.
Akarsh Singh, Founder and CEO of Tsaaro, said: “Although the research report has reported some truly worrying numbers in the adolescent category, there is hope that children are ready to embrace safe spaces if they are well guided. The problem lies in education, the system that thrives on the internet world fails to inspire our next generation to be safe on the internet. At Tsaaro, we’re on a mission to make the world more private than public and we’re hard at work with our academy as well as the consulting vertical and hope to see rapid mindset shifts happen in the space.
