BETHESDA, Md., March 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Generali Global Assistance (GGA), the developer of a proprietary and innovative identity and cyber protection platform, today published a white paper titled, “Seniors & Millennials: Uncovering the Likeness & Disparities in Today’s Digital Age”, in conjunction with the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC), a nationally recognized non-profit organization established to support victims of identity theft.
GGA and the ITRC polled 1,509 seniors and 1,510 millennials to gain a better understanding of how each subset of society protects their data in today’s digital age. The whitepaper notes that while there are some important differences between seniors and millennials, there are oft-overlooked similarities that unite the two groups, and neither is immune to partaking in risky digital behaviors.
Paige Schaffer, CEO of Global Identity and Cyber Protection Services, commented, “With the continued digitization of our identities and the rise in IoT devices, people need to protect themselves against identity theft now, more than ever. The insights we garnered from this survey will help us better protect customers across generations by understanding how each group protects their personal data, and what can be done to improve upon it.”
