Nearly six in 10 Hong Kong people have little trust in companies to safeguard their personal data, according to a survey that sought responses from 300 people.
More than half said they feared the risk of data breaches and 56 percent thought companies were not doing enough to prevent breaches, the survey by Brunswick found.
Meanwhile, 57 percent of respondents said the senior management of a hacked company should take the blame for a data breach, while those who blamed the hacker accounted for 55 percent.
In the event of a data breach, 51 percent said they would boycott the affected company, and 47 percent would encourage family and friends also to boycott.
