Fear of cyberattack widespread in US

San Francisco: Roughly eight-in-ten or more in the US say public infrastructure will be damaged, national security information will be accessed, or elections will be tampered with via cyber attack, according to a survey by the Pew Research Center. Across the 26 countries surveyed, nearly half said their country was well prepared to handle a major cyberattack, but an equal share disagreed, showed the findings released on Wednesday. In the United States, just over half of Americans (53 per cent) thought their country was prepared to handle a major cyberattack. In Russia, 67 per cent believed their nation was ready for a major cyber incident. (IANS)
