Cybersecurity survey: Security Barometer

Trust is a significant driver in digitalization

A high level of trust amongst citizens is a necessity for a successful transition to a digitalized society.

The TietoEVRY Security Barometer gauges the level of consumer trust in relation to online security and privacy. Now in its second edition, the TietoEVRY Security Barometer collects consumer views on data security and protection across the Nordics. The 2018 Barometer covered Finland and Sweden; the 2020 Barometer also covers Norway. The 2020 study was conducted in collaboration with the research institutes Kantar Sifo (Sweden) and Kantar (Finland, Norway) in September 2020. There were a total of over 3,000 respondents, roughly 1,000 per each country.  

Finnish survey results: Digital trust requires more work, although trust in authorities has remained strong.

More than eight in every ten Finns trust the authorities when it comes to handling their personal data. In our latest Security Barometer, some 24% of Finns consider the authorities to be very trustworthy handlers of their data, about the same as in our 2018 barometer (25%). Another 63% regard the authorities to be fairly trustworthy, up from 58% in 2018. However, this level of trust does not carry across to the private sector: only 3% of Finns consider companies to be very trustworthy handlers of personal data, down from 5% in 2018, while 50% deem companies to be fairly trustworthy (45% in 2018). 

Security and data protection are at the heart of digital trust. Trust in the authorities and Finland's famous information security expertise form an excellent foundation. The COVID-19 pandemic brought a digital leap with it as many services go digital. I am optimistic that the development of digital trust will create new opportunities. Can building trust make the digital leap permanent?

Maria Nordgren

Head of Cybersecurity Services, TietoEVRY.

Overall, the Finnish public’s digital trust has increased from two years ago, if only modestly. But there is plenty of room for improvement. Encouragingly, some 63% of Finns say they would like the opportunity to vote remotely via the Internet in the next parliamentary elections. Even among senior citizens (age group 65-79), more than half (52%) would welcome this opportunity.

The results of Sweden and Norway will be added when concluded. 

TietoEVRY takes digital security seriously. As a key player in Nordic digitalization, we also contribute to and drive increased digital security - we provide services that safeguard your digital assets.
