India 23rd on cyber-security index

India has been ranked 23rd among 165 countries in the United Nations Global Cyber Security Index – measuring a country’s commitment to cyber security in the “maturing” category between the 50th and 89th percentile.

The “maturing stage” refers to 77 countries that have developed complex commitments, and engage in cyber security programmes and initiatives. With higher score 0.683, India ranks one position higher than Germany, which has scored 0.679 while China is nine spots below India.

However, Singapore, one of the world’s smallest countries, has secured the first position in the index. The report, ‘Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI) 2017’, showed that the Asian country has outshined some of the wealthiest and most powerful countries including US, Australia, and France.

The survey noted that Singapore has “a long history “of taking cyber security initiatives.

The top 10 in the list are Malaysia, Oman, Estonia, Mauritius, Australia, Georgia, France and Canada. Russia is ranked 11th.
