Men Think They Are More Secure Online

The majority of men think that they know more about online security than women, but a new poll indicates that both sexes are equally vulnerable to online threats.

The poll of 1,400 UK adults revealed that men are more likely to be confident about their online security and only 4 percent are unsure of what protection their computer has. "My gut feeling, because I’m a man, is that it is one of those societal gender things," said Larry Bridwell, global security strategist at AVG, which commissioned the study.
