140+ countries in the NCSI - Happy New Year 2020!

The NCSI has reached a new milestone at the end of this year. We currently display the National Cyber Security rankings, with their corresponding evidence, of more than 140 countries. In this last month, four Caribbean countries were introduced in the index, and the evidence of an additional European country was updated. 

Serbia climbed up the rankings to the 14th position. The presented evidence included: a cyber security strategy implementation plan, legislation relevant to the protection of digital services, increased response capabilities to cyber incidents, cryptosystem requirements and cyber security competencies at the primary and secondary education levels. 

The following Caricom countries debuted in the NCSI with their current rankings: Bahamas - 96th; Grenada - 118th; Saint Kitts and Nevis - 127th; and Dominica - 134th. Efforts vary from country to country, however, the common denominators are the existence of legislation regulating electronic signatures, and the participation in international military cyber exerises. 

2020 will be a year of challenges, since we will attempt to include all the remaining 50+ countries in the NCSI, and will continue updating those already in it. We would like to thank all our country contributors for their cooperation in this endeavour, and we would like to wish all of you a Happy New Year 2020!
