Key insights from the report

CRI

Developed countries are more vulnerable

Factors like high-income economy, advanced technological infrastructure, urbanization, and digitalization lead to a higher level of cybercrime. That’s why Northern Europe, which has the highest average monthly wage and more than 90% of internet penetration, is the most dangerous place in the world to be online. North America isn’t far behind.

high cyber risk index USA and UK

The US and UK are among top 10 riskiest countries

Surprisingly, the UK ranks 1st and the US 2nd on the Global Cybersecurity Index, which is calculated based on legal, technical, organizational, and capacity building factors on a country level. But these factors have a limited impact on cyber risk when we get down to the individual level. Exposure to threats and income matter more.

CRI Europe

The secret of Western Europe

Western Europe falls into the moderate cyber risk category. This puts the region into contrast with Northern Europe and North America, which suffer from high cyber risk. Western Europeans are less exposed to online threats because they spend only 5 hours per day online compared to the global average of 6.5 hours.

low cyber risk index India

India has the best score

The only country to land in the very low cyber risk category. An average Indian has very little exposure to the internet and its threats. Moreover, with a monthly wage that is 13 times lower than the average, Indians aren’t enticing targets for cybercriminals. But if we narrowed our scope to Indians who are hyperactive online, the story would be different. More in the report!
