Are you confident with your country’s cyber security?
According to a recent study, geographic location is crucial to ensure data security. Apart from the country’s technological capacity, there are other things that must be promoted by the government, including pertinent legislation, and capacity building, to promote cyber security awareness. These are the factors that play a vital role to ensure that the government can offer the necessary protection against cyber attack for all its data security stakeholders including the state, its citizens and industries.
However, based on Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI) by ABI Research and the International Telecommunication Union’s report, it revealed that cybersecurity preparedness doesn’t receive enough attention and emphasis than what it needs to have from most governments. This is the sad truth that makes it easier for attackers to successfully plot plans and cause serious problems in various industries.
Several records of cyber security attacks occurred in various countries — and whether you are from a first world or a third world country, you are not completely safe from becoming a victim of cyber attack.
Year after year, data breaches happen. For this reason, it is crucial to know just how secure your country’s cyber preparedness is.
