A new poll conducted by the Pew Research Centre has found that Russians are confident their country is well prepared to deal with any level of cyber attack far more so than Britons or Americans.
After Israel, Russia is the second most self-assured, with 63 percent believing they are prepared for a major cyber-attack. Meanwhile, in the US only 53 percent believe they can hold their ground in a cyber war and in the UK just 46 believe the country is ready. The poll data, released recently, was taken from 27,612 respondents in 26 countries last summer. As the pace and magnitude of cyber-attacks have increased around the world, a new survey shows that people in multiple countries think it is likely that government data, public infrastructure and elections will be targeted by future hacks.
