Monica Whitty, a professor at Queen’s University in Belfast, is conducting research on the amount of control employees have over their work computers and if it varies by country. She’s trying to get 1,000 responses in time for a paper she wants to publish by the end of the year. It takes about 5 minutes, please fill out her online survey. Filling it out prompted me to start up a virus scan just for good measure.
The purpose of this study is to ascertain how individuals in different countries use their work computers and/or laptop computers. It also asks how they protect their work computers and/or laptops from security risks.
I’m looking for individuals 18 years or over and currently live and work (full time/part time or casually) in Australia, the Netherlands, Singapore, the UK, or USA, you are invited to fill out this survey. Only people who use a computer and/or laptop at work are invited to complete this survey (although you don’t need to use one regularly).
A summary of the results will be published from about November 2006 – December 2006 on my website.
