Norton teamed up with independent research firm Sperling’s BestPlaces to uncover the top 10 cities in Europe that have the highest number of cybercrime risk factors. Manchester is ranked No. 1 partly because it has the highest incidences of Wi-Fi hotspots and malware attempts.
The 2012 Top 10 “Riskiest” Online Cities in Europe are:
Manchester, United Kingdom
London, United Kingdom
Cities with the greatest risk factors do not necessarily correlate with the highest infection rates, reflecting the fact that many consumers are taking precautions to keep themselves safe.
