Attitudes towards Privacy, Surveillance and Security in Australia

AN ECU research project is investigating Australians’ attitudes towards surveillance and privacy in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Project lead and PhD candidate Leah Shanley said Australians seemed indifferent or were struggling to grasp how privacy was affected by advances in technology.

The survey is an extension of the pilot study conducted late last year that showed 74 per cent of respondents were concerned about their privacy, particularly relating to the monitoring of behaviour.

Participants who complete the survey will automatically be entered into a draw to win an iPad mini.
