Which countries are most endangered and how safe are users on the Internet in Serbia

The Internet has brought countless benefits to humanity, but also numerous risks. In the era of the Internet, a special form of crime has flourished – cybercriminals endanger not only individuals but also multinational corporations from the comfort and security of their homes.

Significant variations in the risks faced by Internet users around the world have been the subject studies conducted by SEON.

Combining data from five indices and cybersecurity indicators, the researchers ranked 100 countries according to their cyber risks.

Denmark is rated as the safest country on the Internet, with a cyber security rating of 8.91. Germany is in second place with a score of 8.76, followed by Norway (8.73), followed by Norway (8.46), Great Britain (8.44), Canada (8.35), and Sweden (8.22). ), Australia (8.16), Japan (8.09) and the Netherlands (8.00).

The country with the lowest ranking in terms of online security is Myanmar (2.22), with a poor result in all analyzed indices. That country hardly has cyber security laws that could disrupt the activities of cybercriminals. Ahead of Myanmar are Cambodia (2.67), Honduras (3.13), Bolivia (3.21), Mongolia (3.25), Algeria (3.41), Zimbabwe (3.42), Nicaragua (3.43) ), Bosnia and Herzegovina (3.46) and El Salvador (3.51).

Serbia is in 54th place, with a score of (5.98).

For the study, data were collected from the National Cyber ​​Security Index, which ranked each country based on the strength of their cyber security measures, followed by data from the Global Cyber ​​Security Index 2020, which also ranked countries based on their cyber security. Data from both of these sources were used because their results differed due to the use of different ranking criteria for each country.

The Basel AML Index was also used as a source of data: the 9th edition, which ranks countries based on the risk of money laundering and terrorist financing. These illegal activities are most often done digitally, so this is a good indicator of how well the internet is controlled and safe in a country.

The fourth criterion used in the study was the result of each country from the Exposure Index (CEI) 2020, which measures the risk of Internet users in each country.

In addition to these indices, anti-cybercrime legislation in each country was taken into account, using data from the Global Cyber ​​Strategy Index, which records the number of strategies and laws enacted in each country, as well as the number of areas covered by such legislation.
