A study conducted by Ofcom found 45 percent of U.K. citizens have suffered a form of harm online, BBC News reports. Ofcom broke down the types of harm into four categories, including data and privacy, cybersecurity and hacking, interactions with other users, and online content people see, watch or hear. The study found most citizens would likely be affected by harmful interactions via email and social media. Of the respondents who said they suffered harm, 20 percent said the experience was “very harmful,” with 20 percent also saying they reported the harmful content when they encountered it.
