18 Feb 2019
The NCSI team has specified the wordings of some indicator criteria, resulting in changes in the index ranking.
The changes are the following:
- Previous wording: "The government has a competent authority that has the power to supervise digital service providers."
- New wording: "The government has a competent authority in the field of cyber/information security that has the power to supervise public and private digital service providers regarding the implementation of cyber/information security requirements."
- Previous wording: "Requirements for cryptosystems are regulated."
- New wording: "Requirements for cryptosystems in the field of trust services are regulated."
- The wording: "Digital service providers and operators of essential services have an obligation to notify appointed government authorities of cyber security incidents." has remained unchanged. However, we previously focused on digital service providers in the public sector, but now focus on digital service providers in both the public and the private sector.
The changes in the wording affected the scores of the following countries: Albania, Belarus, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Kenya, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Morocco, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Senegal, Serbia, Slovakia, Qatar, Tajikistan, the United States, and Uzbekistan
