Unisys released its latest Security Index which stated that roughly half of American citizens would be willing to provide biometric data to add security for airport screenings and banking transactions.
The survey shows that 60% would be willing for airport security, 57% for banking transactions, 53% for government benefits and services and 46% for employer computer systems. Even 21% would be willing to provide biometric information as part of logging onto social media sites like Facebook.
Nearly 90% of all survey respondents said they would take some sort of action in the event of a data breach, ranging from conservative solutions like changing their passwords, 87%, to those with more serious commercial implications, such as closing their accounts, 76%, or taking legal action, 53%.
