Test your cybersecurity knowledge

CybersecurityLast summer, the folks at the Pew Research Center surveyed adult internet users living in the US about cybersecurity.

The results? "A majority of internet users can answer fewer than half the questions correctly on a difficult knowledge quiz about cybersecurity issues and concepts."

Want to see how you fare? Take the short 13-question quiz. When you finish, you'll be able to compare your scores with the average American and see explanations for the terms and topics in each question. The analysis of the findings from the poll can be found in the full report, "What the Public Knows About Cybersecurity."

How did you do?

I got two questions wrong, so I feel I'm doing pretty well. Could use some information about what's new in cybersecurity, and what works to support privacy. It was wishful thinking on my part that if I turned off the GPS on my phone that it couldn't be tracked. Would like to know more about things like that.
