Cybersecurity Index of Indices

14 Jul 2015

Cybersecurity development is a complex matter. Whether at the nation state level, or in an enterprise, various factors need to be taken into consideration and layered approach can provide more comprehensive coverage than single solutions. The application of cybersecurity is also a continuous process that needs to match ongoing cybercriminal activities and threat campaigns. As such, the measurement of security postures and progress over time are important elements to strengthening policies, evaluating risks and anticipating future scenarios. Various cybersecurity indices have been published in the past few years; yet not all measure the same capabilities. They can be broadly split into 3 major groups: indices for assessing countries’ national postures, indices for assessing organizations, and indices for assessing threats. The three groups are presented in the below whitepaper alongside current relevant indices.

The below table highlights the various indices covered and illustrates the different criteria each index includes. The whitepaper further breaks down each index with qualitative analysis and includes maps to illustrate each indices global reach. Please download the whitepaper below for more information.
