Global Cybersecurity Index

The Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI) is an ITU-ABIresearch joint project to rank the cybersecurity capabilities of nation states. Cybersecurity has a wide field of application that cuts across many industries and sectors. Each country’s level of development will therefore be analyzed within five categories: Legal Measures, Technical Measures, Organizational Measures, Capacity Building and Cooperation.

The Global Cybersecurity Index and Cyberwellness profiles Report has been launched at WSIS Forum’15 Geneva, on the 28 May.
