With so much of our personal data stored online, cybersecurity is of the utmost importance. According to a Comparitech report, Denmark is the most cyber-secure country in the world. Other top-performing countries included Sweden, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Canada and Japan. So, Scandinavia ranks among the most cyber-secure countries in the world.
The rankings released earlier this month suggests Denmark, Sweden, Ireland, Germany, Japan, Canada and Finland are closely ranked at the top of the 72- country study. At the bottom are Algeria, Tajikistand, Turkmenistan, Syria and Iran.
Lowest number of financial malware attacks
The lowest number of financial malware attacks was in Denmark, Ireland and Sweden. In all of these countries, this kind of cyberattacks concerned only 0.1 percent of users.
The study revealed Denmark to be the most cyber-secure country in the world, taking over from Japan, which dropped four places to the fifth most cyber-secure country. Last year’s fourth most cyber-secure country, Denmark, scored incredibly low across the majority of categories, only scoring a little higher in the legislation category due to it not having specific laws that cover content and cybercrime.
Improvement since last year
“We found most countries’ scores improved since last year,” says a summary of the report. “But due to greater cybersecurity efforts from the majority of countries, this means some of the best performers from last year have dropped down the rankings”.
