With the advent of modern technologies such as
IoT, artificial intelligence, and cloud
computing, there is a rapid increase in the
number of interconnected devices globally. It has
also increased the number of cyber-attacks and
data breaches. As a result, cybercrime is a
global concern, and appropriate solutions are
essential if proper responses are to be found.
The Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI) is one such
instrument to control cybercrime and provide
feedback.

What is the Global Cybersecurity Index
(GCI)? The Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI) is a
reliable resource that assesses countries global
cybersecurity commitment to increase awareness of
the issues relevance and various elements. In
simple terms, GCI is a valuable tool for
determining how much emphasis a country places on
the concept of cybersecurity within its borders.
It is computed by the International
Telecommunication Union (ITU), a United Nations
specialized agency.

Why is the Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI)
important? The International Telecommunication
Union (ITU) first launched the Global
Cybersecurity Index in 2015 to measure the
commitment of 193 ITU Member States and the State
of Palestine to cybersecurity in order to help
them recognize areas for improvement and
encourage countries to take action by raising
awareness about the state of cybersecurity
globally. As cybersecurity risks, objectives, and
resources change, the GCI has evolved to provide
a more realistic picture of countries
cybersecurity efforts. GCIs fundamental concept
is that, while we live in the age of the
industrial revolution, everything around us is
becoming digital. Are we paying enough attention
to securing those digitized assets? Its goal is
to better understand countries cybersecurity
commitments, highlight gaps, encourage the
adoption of best practices, and give valuable
insights for countries looking to strengthen
their cybersecurity postures.

  • Pillars of Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI)
  • As cybersecurity has such a broad range of
    applications, spanning many businesses and
    sectors, each countrys level of development or
    participation is rated along five pillars before
    being summed together to produce an overall
    score. There are five parameters of GCI
  • Legal measures In this, cybercrime and
    cybersecurity laws and regulations are being
    assessed.
  • Technical measures Using national and
    sector-specific authorities to assess the
    deployment of technical capabilities.
  • Organizational measures Measures the
    effectiveness of national cybersecurity plans and
    organizations.
  • Capacity-building measures Measures the
    cybersecurity capacity development and awareness
    campaigns, training, education, and incentives.
  • Cooperation measures Partnerships between
    agencies, businesses, and countries are being
    measured.

What is the Global Cybersecurity Agenda
(GCA)? The GCI is based on a multistakeholder
approach and initiative. It uses the capacity and
expertise of several organizations to improve the
surveys quality, boost international
cooperation, and promote knowledge sharing on
this topic. The Global Cybersecurity Agenda (GCA)
of the ITU serves as the initiatives broad
foundation and framework. Why is it essential to
comprehend cybersecurity across nations? Simply
described, cybersecurity is the process of
preventing digital attacks on networks, systems,
hardware, data, or any other digital
infrastructure. Cybersecurity is critical to
nations, businesses, and even individuals because
it safeguards all types of data against theft and
loss. Sensitive data, Personally Identifiable
Information (PII), Protected Health Information
(PHI), personal information, intellectual
property, data, and governmental and industry
information systems all fall under this category.

Which country came out on top in the Global
Cybersecurity Index for 2020? The International
Telecommunication Unions (ITU) latest GCI
reveals an increase in global commitment to
combat and reduce cybersecurity risks. Despite
the problems of COVID-19 and the increasing
migration of everyday activities and
socio-economic services into the digital world,
countries are attempting to strengthen their
cyber security, according to the newly issued
2020 Global Cybersecurity Index. The table below

Final Words Cybersecurity is always evolving.
Whether its a global health concern, climate
change, aging populations, or another future
concern, digital technologies are a compelling
instrument for moving the world forward.
Digitalization affects all countries to some
level, and cybersecurity should be a top concern
as a vital facilitator of the economy, society,
and government that relies on digital networks.
Countries must address their cybersecurity
strengths and weaknesses, as well as utilize
their competitive advantages, in order to boost
overall cyber capacity and health. The Global
Cybersecurity Index (GCI) can assist countries in
getting started on this path.
