Germany stood second in the index with a score of 8.76 in the Global Cybersecurity Index score followed by United States- thanks to the comprehensive security laws and regulations. Then at the fourth position was Norway with a score of 8.46, followed by UK with a Cybersecurity index score of 8.44 and Canada with a score of 8.35 and standing in the list at the fifth position and Australia, Japan, along with Netherlands standing at later positions thereafter.
