Digital natives fall victim to cyber fraud more than any other demographic. It has to do with numbers for sure. There are more digital natives than not zipping around cyberspace, but at issue is that the fact that so many of the under-25 crowd think it’s only their stupid parents who get “got” by cybercrime.
“We most often think of these young adults as highly tech savvy, but many also tend to be more relaxed in their usage patterns and willingness to share personal data,” said Kimberly Sutherland, VP of fraud and identity at LexisNexis Risk Solutions.
