UK fears cyber criminals will use NHSX COVID-19 tracing app to launch cyber attacks

Nearly half (48%) of the UK public surveyed about the NHSX COVID-19 tracing app do not trust the UK government to keep their information safe from hackers.

This is according to a study carried out by Censuswide on behalf of Anomali, a leader in intelligence-driven cybersecurity solutions. The nation-wide survey, released today, examined consumer attitudes to the proposed tracing app, particularly their confidence and wider trust in the government to appropriately and justly handle the data collected for the scheme.
