Victims Of Stolen Personal Information By Age, April 2014 [CHART]

According to the Pew results, some 18% of online adults have had important personal information – such as their Social Security number, credit card, or bank information – stolen. That comes from a survey conducted in January 2014, and represents a hefty increase from 11% reporting stolen information in a July 2013 survey. The 30-49 and 50-64 age groups appear to be among the most afflicted; 1 in 5 online adults in each group reported having their data stolen as of the January survey. Moreover, the share of 18-29-year-olds falling victim to data theft more than doubled in the space of the two surveys, from 7% to 15%. Read the rest at MarketingChart.
