JOHANNESBURG – Manie van Schalkwyk, the head of the SA Fraud Prevention Service, is concerned about data and the security issues that pertain to it.
For those who grew up in the digital age, some with exposure from the age of 4, the digital universe is a comfortable place and issues of trust do not carry the same concerns for them as they might for their parents’ generation, he says.
According to a Gallup poll, Larry Alton says, millennials have more trust in institutions that guard their personal data.
“Millennials have higher trust in almost every category, including banks, health insurance companies, credit card companies, cellphone companies, email providers, and brick-and-mortar retailers.”
Also, millennials appreciate online targeting that serves their needs in preference to “spamming” that has no relevance, Van Schalkwyk adds.
