I know some security-savvy millennials, but they have been well-coached by their mom. =)

Re: Leading survey?
@Kelly: Judging by the Millennials I have come to know, I think it's more a matter of wanting to appear as if they fit in and are doing the right thing.

If Millennials as a whole truly cared -- genuinely cared -- about information security and data privacy to the level being discussed here, they sure as shootin' wouldn't use so many apps or live on their mobile devices.

Now get off my lawn.

Re: Leading survey?
Good point about "leading" questions in surveys. But I think it's also not surprising that millennials, who unlike their parents grew up with technology/Internet, are more concerned about cybersecurity.

Leading survey?
I question the survey results reported in that last graf.  It is an automatically leading question merely by virtue of asking it.  It makes people feel like they *should* be concerned about cybersecurity when it comes to politics, even if they're not -- or it triggers in people the feeling that they, as rational human beings, OF COURSE factor cybersecurity into their voting decision-making, even when they do not.

I seriously doubt that cybersecurity is a significant factor for the vast majority of US voters.
