Privacy Remains an Issue Among Consumers (Jan 2002)

January, 2002


Thirty-five percent of consumers say they are more concerned about their financial privacy than they were a year ago, according to a survey released by Star Systems, a Concord EFS subsidiary. The other 65 percent, however, report either the same level (59 percent) or a lower level (6 percent) of concern. And 61 percent of respondents are satisfied with the way their primary financial institution has informed them of its privacy policies.
