According to a ‘Consumer Security Risks Survey’, by B2B International and Kaspersky Lab, regions majority half i.e. 55% of Emirati citizens have serious concerns and fear, while doing online purchases and banking transactions.

Such weaker aspects of cyber security have drastically affected citizens buying behavior, as nearly 48% of UAE citizens have insecurity, while making financial business transactions. The survey results also revealed that every 7 out of 10 citizens have suffered a financial threat, as per last year’s assessment.
