The Government is undertaking a survey of individuals, businesses, charities and other non-profit organisations across the UK about their attitudes and approach to cyber security.
Ipsos MORI has been commissioned to carry out the survey.
During this time you may receive a call from an Ipsos MORI interviewer from their Edinburgh office on +44 (0)131 467 6666. The interviewer should also be able to provide you with an email confirming they are working on behalf of Ipsos MORI.
The survey has been commissioned by the National Cyber Security Centre and Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport as part of the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Programme.
The findings will inform Government policy and the guidance which is offered to organisations and the public on a range of cyber security issues, as part of making the UK the safest place to live and do business online.
HM Government and Ipsos MORI can give the following reassurances about the survey:
- Taking part is totally confidential and anonymous for all individuals and organisations.
- The survey is not technical and participants do not need any specific IT knowledge
- The survey is intended to generate statistical findings and is not trying to sell you anything
- Ipsos MORI would still be interested to speak to individuals and organisations even if you have not had any cyber security issues to gather a wide range of views - you will not be asked irrelevant questions
Participation will involve a telephone interview with an interviewer from Ipsos MORI. The fieldwork is due to take place between 12 November and 20 December. On average interviews last around 15 minutes, though the actual interview length may vary depending on the answers that you give. No preparation or prior knowledge is required. The interview will take place at a time that is convenient for you. (Updated: 9 November 2018)
