Technology is ever evolving and new cyber threats continue to be devised. In embracing technology progress, cybersecurity must form an integral and indivisible part of the process. Unfortunately, cybersecurity is not yet at the core of many national and industrial technology strategies. Countries need to be aware of their current capability level in cybersecurity and at the same time identify areas where cybersecurity needs to be enhanced.
The Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI) is a measure of each nation state’s level of cybersecurity development. The GCI aims at providing the right motivation to countries to intensify their efforts in cybersecurity. The ultimate goal is to help foster a global culture of cybersecurity and its integration at the core of information and communication technologies.
