UN telecom agency launches study to assess status of cybersecurity worldwide

The United Nations International Telecommunications Union (ITU) launched today a unique initiative to measure the levels of cybersecurity in countries, underlining the agency’s commitment to building Internet safety capacity at the national level, particularly in developing countries.

The Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI) will be spearheaded by ITU and ABI Research with the long-term aim to drive further efforts in the integration of cybersecurity on a global scale and bridging gaps worldwide. It will allow for a comparison of different national cybersecurity strategies and best practices to be highlighted in specific areas.
