The Government does not agree with the implication within the report that the public has lost confidence in using the internet. The continuing increase of trading on the internet, with year' on' year growth of 80% in some areas, does not support such a view. The explosion in user generated content and the opening of new and varied forms of social interaction through the internet also underlines the interest in and ' if not absolute confidence - then an acceptable level of comfort with the technology. The Government recognises the dangers of complacency against this background of continuing success. Although the number and sophistication of security threats has risen over recent years the Government believes that this has to be viewed in the context of the dramatic increase in internet usage. As such, we would refute the suggestion that the public has lost confidence in the internet and that lawlessness is rife.
Bu the DTI-sponsored Trustguide shows quite clearly that people do not trust the Internet, They use it because they find it convenient and believe there will be restitution (eg from their ank/card issuer) if things go wrong.Posted by William on 2007-11-01 22:23:59.
