Bangladesh has advanced by 6 places to overtake Israel in the National Cyber Security Index prepared by the Estonia-based e-Governance Academy Foundation.
Bangladesh ranks 32nd among 180 countries in the national cyber security index with 67.53 points out of 100.
And Israel ranks 33rd in this index. On the other hand, India, which was ranked 39th last year, has down five steps to 44th place.
The e-Governance Academy developed the National Cyber Security Index (NCSI) to assess the preparedness, cyber incidents, crime, and major crisis management activities of the countries listed in the list.
The GCI results show overall improvement and strengthening of all five pillars of the cybersecurity agenda—legal measures, technical measures, organizational measures, capacity development measures, and cooperation measures.
The non-profit organization is a joint effort of the Estonian government, the Open Society Institute and the United Nations Development Program.
Meanwhile, Greece has retained the first position in the NCSI index with 96.10 points like last year, followed by Lithuania, Belgium, Czech Republic and Estonia, respectively.
