Poland Leads the Change: Dominating Global Cybersecurity Rankings

March 13, 2024

Poland has emerged as the leading nation in the highly esteemed National Cyber Security Index (NCSI), showcasing its ability to combat cyber threats on a worldwide scale. Surpassing 31 other countries, including Australia and Estonia, Poland secured the top position with a score of 90.83 points.

Adam Marczyński, Deputy Director of NASK PIB for Cybersecurity and Innovation, highlighted Poland’s cybersecurity prowess, stating that Poland’s distinction in the ranking is a testament to the hard work of our cybersecurity experts who protect us from threats daily. He also noted: No ranking can lull our vigilance and readiness to act. The situation in this area is still difficult and requires constant attention, building skills, and developing methods and tools. We must continue to improve and develop our abilities to repel cyberattacks.

Poland’s proactive approach to cybersecurity is evident in its robust architecture, which includes three national-level Tech Teams known as Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs). This infrastructure underscores Poland’s commitment to fortifying its cyber defenses.

The triumph in the NCSI rankings not only underscores Poland’s cybersecurity capabilities but also showcases its exceptional technological proficiency and advancement in the IT sector. With a thriving tech industry, highly skilled workforce, and robust IT recruitment sector, Poland solidifies its position as a global leader in cybersecurity and innovation.

The NCSI, developed by the Estonian e-Governance Academy, serves as a crucial benchmark for assessing cybersecurity readiness and identifying areas for improvement. For detailed statistics, Poland’s profile on the NCSI website provides further insights into its cybersecurity landscape.
