The Security of the Digital Natives project of Tech and Law Center sets out to study the level of awareness and perception of IT security amongst university students, paying particular attention to the world of mobile devices.
The report analyses the answers given by 1012 students from over 15 Italian universities to a multiple-choice questionnaire. The analysis shows that students’ perception of their knowledge is generally wrong and that they are unaware of the risks arising from their behavior. In view of these risks, a proposal has been made to implement technical and legal measures to reduce future problems deriving from faulty or lax adoption of security measures on their mobile devices.
