In the Digitial.Report, Melissa Hathaway discusses the importance of cyber readiness and cyber insecurity. Please see link for entire article here.

The Cyber Readiness Index 2.0 examines one hundred and twenty-five countries and evaluates their maturity and commitment to securing their cyber infrastructure and services. It uses over seventy unique data indicators across seven essential elements: national strategy, incident response, e-crime and law enforcement, information sharing, investments in research and development, diplomacy and trade, and defense and crisis response. By applying this actionable blueprint, a country can better understand its Internet-infrastructure dependencies and vulnerabilities and assess its preparedness to cyber risks. Dozens of country examples are used to illustrate innovative and multicultural solutions towards becoming cyber ready.
