British experts from IISS named 15 countries with maximum cyber capabilities

21

The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), headquartered in London, has conducted research into the cyber capabilities of various countries. The experts formalized their conclusions in the form of a report.

Two-year research has allowed British experts to identify 15 countries with the highest cyber capabilities, and both China and Russia are not leaders in this area. According to Fox News, the cyber potential of these countries, and especially China, is clearly "overestimated."



The assessment was carried out according to a number of criteria, including: strategy and doctrine; management, command and control; cyber intelligence capabilities; dependence on cyberspace; cybersecurity; global leadership in cyberspace; and offensive cyber capabilities.

The United States became the unconditional leader by a large margin from all others; it was this country that experts attributed to the "first level" as the most consistent with all the criteria. Russia and China, as well as Canada, Australia, France, Great Britain and Israel were awarded the "second level". These countries have an advantage only in a number of criteria.

Tier three countries have a strong or potential advantage in some categories, but have significant disadvantages in others. These countries were classified by British experts as India, Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Malaysia, North Korea and Vietnam.

It is emphasized that the United States is far ahead of its competitors in cyber capabilities. China, for example, is predicted at least 10 years to catch up with America, and Russia even more. If China, according to experts from the IISS, is hampered by "lingering problems" in the field of cybersecurity, then Russia is heavily dependent on foreign technologies.

    Stripes created this tool for themselves. Another thing is that the rest are striving to keep up, because they have felt how important this is, a universal, convenient tool of influence.

      At the e-government conference in Tallinn, the cyber security index was announced for 100 countries of the world. The cyber security index was developed by the e-Governance Academy with the financial support of the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
      The top ten countries with the best cybersecurity included France, Germany, Estonia, Slovakia, Finland, Lithuania, Spain, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Czech Republic.
      USA, RF, PRC "work and work".

        Cyber ​​capabilities and cyber security ... it seems that one of the other arises, not that one cannot exist without the other.

        The best cybersecurity in the world belongs to the Aimish sect. They have no computers, no internet, no electricity, and they are invulnerable in cyberspace. wassat

      It seems to me that if British scientists conduct research on "who is more" in any field and even who eats more crap, then the states, by definition, should get ahead of everyone, no matter how, once they position themselves first, they must justify.

    There was no need to write further ...
    Although now you can refer to this study and say that all cyberattacks are the work of the United States, because we are in the second echelon and in general is highly dependent on Western technologies

    Mattresses have opportunities, it is indisputable. And big ones. But there is not enough ability to use them. Not enough brains, simply put. All of their more or less valuable specialists are emigrants. As well as in Israel

      If they don't have their own, they use strangers, isn't it wrong?

        You need to cook your own. Teach, educate. Respect for mattress is falling day by day, so the flow of emigrants may be cut off. And there will be a failure.

        Tsuzye can be Maoists, communists, ideological anti-Americanists or just hooligans, they are kullhatskers, they will launch a hooligan in the bins, and he will take the entire Internet in the USA.

      A common but completely mistaken opinion. Of course, both in the USA and Canada, you can find a certain number of Indians, Russians or even Eskimos employed in this industry. But if you approach from the point of view that the United States and Israel are countries of emigrants, then these matters have long been ruled by the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of emigrants, who very little identify themselves with the country of origin and have not considered themselves emigrants for a long time. hi

        In fact, the states are the leaders in using the brains of immigrants (highly qualified specialists).
        We are just learning. And we have a lot to offer. For example, in the field of data processing and AI. We are on an equal footing with Boston and Los Angeles. It's the same with cyber security. We are second only to Silicon Valley.

          Not an expert on AI, but on cybersecurity, we're lagging behind. As true "cryptographers" they are 1 out of 100 best mathematicians-proger, and only a few of them and the best leave. In general, we have powerful groups, we are experts in attacks, but we are much less protected than the United States. After all, almost all iron is directly or indirectly connected to the United States. And 99 security problems are a human factor.

      Not enough brains, in other words.

      And they have brains, they buy them for dollars all over the world. And if they say about it, then who will believe in Russian hackers? So they pretend to be poor relatives and naive babies.

    moreover, both China and Russia are not leaders in this area.

    Well, how can I say .. Russian programmers usually take first places in various competitions, etc.
    And I remembered an old anecdote about China:
    Chinese Hackers Hacked Pentagon Server! How so ..
    After typing the password "Mao Zedong" 30 million times, the server agreed with this

      And the states keep track of all these contests, and those that are below the ranks. And then the "buying up" of talents begins.

      But about Mao Zedong, a very good anecdote.

        They buy, and those who do not agree are put in jail and forced to work for themselves (there were many such examples) ..
        Now it seems that all this is being monitored by our special services .. Over there in physics, chemistry, our schoolchildren took all the first places in Europe .. About this "our" media actually do not write or speak .. Because the persecution of Russia is unprecedented in the world
        Let's break through! Russia has a hidden potential, for this they hate us out of envy and anger.

    Forgot about Ukraine, which has top-level "cyber capabilities".
    There they are all engaged in this, and in the government, and in the parliament, and in the kindergarten.

    Well, finally, the Anglo-Saxons themselves admitted that the United States has more opportunities for cyberattacks during presidential elections, and at the same time, it has more opportunities to defend itself against cyberattacks.
    So you can shove all Russia's cyberattacks under your desk in the train station ..

    You can't praise yourself ... And if you look at who wins at mathematical Olympiads, who works in Silicon Valley, who is the leading developer of antivirus software ..., then the picture is somewhat different.
