Frankie… who? No April Fool’s joke: Francis (“Frankie”) Archibald Keyes, Esquire, a fictitious figure you likely have never heard of, enjoys significantly higher trust among IT professionals than most real-life cybersecurity vendors or experts, according to new survey results from this year’s RSA Conference in San Francisco.
Of those surveyed in our Cybersecurity Approval Poll at RSA, a total of 88% stated that they trusted the made-up Mr. Keyes “much more”, “slightly more” or “about the same” as “other cybersecurity vendors and experts.”
If these results don’t instill much confidence in the industry’s ability to protect its customers from data breaches, malware attacks, and online election meddling, that is the whole point.
