In addition to rising to 14th place in the Global Cybersecurity Index 2020, Portugal also rises to 8th place in the European ranking.
The placement is the result of a set of legislative, technical, organizational, capacity building and cooperation initiatives that have been defined and implemented in recent years.
A new study reveals that Portugal has registered an improvement in cyberspace security. The country, which once ranked 42nd on the Global Cybersecurity Index in 2018, now climbs to 14th. In the European ranking, Portugal is now in 8th place, after occupying 25th position two years ago.
The Index, organized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), aims to measure the organization’s 193 Member States’ commitment to cyberspace security, to help them identify areas where they need to to improve, between risks, priorities and evolution of cybersecurity resources, and to encourage the inclusion of good practices.
