Global Cybersecurity Index 2017 reveals that 50% of countries have no cybersecurity strategy in place

The UN's International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has recently released the second version of its Global Cybersecurity Index which measures countries' commitment to cybersecurity and helps them to identify areas for improvement.

In addition to showing the overall cybersecurity commitment of ITU's 193 Member States, the index also shows the improvement and strengthening of all GCI indicators, which are defined by the five pillars of the ITU Global Cybersecurity Agenda as: legal, technical, organizational, capacity building and international cooperation. Singapore, the US, and Malaysia topped the list of nations that are most committed to cybersecurity, the report found.

As the cyberthreat landscape continues to grow, with massive attacks in 2017 such as Petya and WannaCry, it's imperative for governments make cybersecurity a part of their national policies:
only 38% of countries have a published cybersecurity strategy, and just 12% are in the process of developing one.

Various sectors are on the blink of radical transformation, while others will disappear altogether.
