The U.S. public wants stronger federal data security legislation as its
confidence wanes in current laws intended to protect them on the Internet,
according to a new survey the Cybersecurity Industry Alliance released
The April survey of 1,150 adults found that only 18 percent - less than
one in five - believe that existing laws are sufficient to protect them
on the Internet.
The survey's results come a day after the Department of Veterans Affairs
revealed that personal information of about 26.5 million veterans -
including their names, Social Security numbers, disability ratings and
birth dates - was stolen sometime in the past month from the home of a VA
employee who took the information home without authorization.
With so many Americans vulnerable to exploitation, "the survey reiterates
that Americans are concerned with this issue and want to see an adequate
legal framework" to protect them, said Shannon Kellogg, director of
government and industry affairs at RSA Security and a member of the
National Cyber Security Alliance's Board of Officers.
