A 2017 Unisys Security Index report has revealed that Tasmanians are more worried about terrorism than other Australians.

The report showed that 77% of Tasmanians are concerned about terrorism and national security, compared to 54% of Australians nationally.

Head of Border and National Security for Unisys John Kendall discusses these results with Brian Carlton.

"Under national security we include two categories: natural disasters.... and war and terrorist attacks, and that's where they [Tasmania] stand out way above all the other states, amongst the highest in the world even," says Mr Kendall.

The report also showed that the top two concerns for Australians in general are identity theft and credit card fraud.
