dc.description.abstractThis study focuses on highlighting the importance of personal protection from computer viruses. This issue is approached by way of releasing a survey, which is intended to investigate our main question of “How well does the public understand about their role in the control and spread of computer viruses?” We challenge the idea that all users are responsible enough to safely operate a computer system. Data collected at the end of the survey is analyzed, manipulated by data filters which output a selection of survey responses based upon given criteria. Statistics are calculated based on the output from the data filters. To ensure the anonymity of each respondent, the survey does not ask questions that reveal any personal information. A behavioral analysis is completed to investigate safe behaviors people should use while operating a computer. Overall, this investigation is meant to stimulate a spread of education about computer viruses.en_US
