The French Cyber-Kiss


One of the latest online surveys in France shed a surprising light on the behavior of the Internet users. It turns out that one in two French web users pays a visit to some of the financial websites, such as banks or insurance companies, at least once in a month. So, what is the big deal about it, you may ask?

Well, for what is worth, you should bear in mind that there are more than 50 million Internet users in France on a daily basis. That gives us more than twenty million visitors of the finance related websites. Or, to be even more precise, more than five million French cyber users hit a bank’s site each day.

The average time they spent on these websites is around seven minutes. If our math is correct that gives more than thirty million minutes for hackers to try something each day. We sure hope that someone has at least five minutes to spend for the potential cyber hazards. Too much to ask. Right?

That was France. What about Germany? We can expect the similar numbers, more or less. Can you imagine all of those millions and millions of unprotected cyber minutes? Oh dear, that is too much to handle. On the other hand, plenty of job opportunities for the busy European cyber security bees.
