The latest Comparitech ranking, which evaluated 76 countries’ susceptibility to security compromises against a number of factors ranked Denmark, Sweden and Germany the highest, and while most countries have improved since last year, with Australia making huge progress, it warns that we are not to get complacent. “… experts warn against complacence as data breaches hit record highs and attacks continue to ravage companies whose leaders still don’t understand security,” says InformationAge.
Several European countries also made significant improvements too (Ukraine, Germany, Portugal, Bulgaria, and Croatia), with only the United States, Brazil, Japan, France, Iran, and Singapore having worse scores than the previous year. “… as the landscape of cybersecurity constantly changes (cryptominers are growing in prevalence, for example), countries need to try and get one step ahead of cybercriminals,” says Comparitech.
