The Digital Challenge – On How We Live and Cope with Digital Dangers

DSI member Sven Bisquolm published his dissertation (written under the supervision of Katja Rost) "The Digital Challenge – On How We Live and Cope with Digital Dangers". The thesis takes a closer look at digital dangers and at how people cope with them through an extensive literature review and a quantitative case study.

A survey was deployed in Switzerland during the winter of 2018-2019 and delivered nationally representative cross-sectional data. Its analysis focuses on perception, coping methods and differences between population groups for perceiving and coping with digital dangers. The results show that the severity of digital dangers is generally considered to be between moderately and highly dangerous.
