New ISP Review Survey (Poll)

Posted: 15th Jun, 2005 By: MarkJ
Continuing our security theme, this month’s new survey asks: "How would you gage your knowledge of security software (anti-virus etc.)?". Results from our previous survey can be found below:

Who should be held most responsible if a net users PC is hijacked (virus etc.) and used for abuse?

User - 72.4%
Internet Provider - 27.5%

Total Votes = 722

Unsurprisingly most of you (72%) felt it to be the responsibility of the individual, while 28% would put the onus on the ISP.

In reality even the most secure of providers can only offer cover to a certain degree, meaning that some element of any connection must always be protected by the end user (e.g. firewall).

ISP’s could improve the situation by playing a more active role in educating consumers, something that only a small minority still do today.
