Security expectations were rated high for online banking and mobile transactions, while rating low for online shopping security.
A survey has found that the approach users take towards securing their digital data remains unchanged, despite several public incidents of high profile security breaches.
According to the latest survey by RSA and the Ponemon Institute around half of respondents had experienced a data breach, with 45%of respondents unsure of when their personal information was compromised.
About 48% of those surveyed admitted to online shopping on a weekly basis, and rated security expectations high for online banking and mobile transactions, while rating low for online shopping security.
Despite a spate of retail data breaches compromising payment card data, 45% of respondents noted that these incidents had no impact on their use of credit or debit cards.
RSA’s Anti-Fraud Command Center, noted that about 33% of banking transactions were carried out via mobile devices during the first half of 2014 and a quarter of fraud transactions originated in the mobile channel.
Of the overall respondents, 77% do not trust the security of mobile apps, with 35% of them admitting to always read permissions of apps being downloaded.
RSA marketing vice president Brian Fitzgerald said: "As the capabilities and convenience of the Internet continue to grow, so does consumer security concerns.
"The results of the Ponemon Study show that while these concerns are top of mind, behaviors and attitudes of consumers are not changing.
"It is incumbent upon the industry, to deliver on promises of strong and convenient security methods to help customers take advantage of the Internet while significantly limiting the risk of threats – both simple and sophisticated."
Weak authentication still remains a major concern among users, with 62% of them lacking trust in websites seeking only a username and password when logging in.
Despite 71% of respondents being highly concerned about losing their password in a data breach, a third of those surveyed had only one to two passwords for all online accounts,
69% of respondents used the same password for more than one device or site, while 54% frequently changed passwords.
