India among nations least able to defend themselves against cyber-attacks: Survey

Washington, Tue, 31 Jan 2012 ANI

Washington, Jan 31(ANI): India, alongwith Brazil, Romania and Mexico are among the nations least able to defend themselves against emerging cyber attacks, a new survey has revealed.


The McAfee-backed cyberdefence survey showed that Israel, Finland and Sweden lead the way in "cyber-readiness", while the US, UK, Germany Spain and France rank favourably in the survey.


The rankings are based on experts' perceptions of a country's cyber-readiness - the ability to cope with a range of threats and attacks.


A good score took into account basic security measures like adequate firewalls and antivirus protection, and more complex matters including well-informed governance and education.


"The subjectiveness of the report is its biggest strength. What it does is give the perception of cyber-readiness by those individuals who kind of understand and work in cyber security on a day-in, day-out basis," the BBC quoted McAfee's chief technology officer Raj Samani, as saying.


The report stressed the need for greater information sharing and making law- enforcement more powerful to combat cyber-attacks. (ANI)
