Which country is the most hackable country ?

Do you think your country is more hackable than your neighbour ? #Hackingis a daily issue but when it comes to nations, we expect more protections...Check the ranking where #western nations are among the weaker countries. #HongKong and #Australia are among the top 10 hackable countries with more than 55% of non #encryted #web pages on their servers. #EU should be worried as well with #Romania among top 10. #Bucharest should improve its HTTPS ratio.
In other words, in a #cyber world where all attacks could destroy your infrastructure, HTTPS (and not HTTP) should become the normality.
Any top EU officials to raise the attention of our #governments ? #Trump at the #WhiteHouse ? #Putin in #Russia ? #XiJinping in #China ? etc

Make US cybersecurity great again

Since 2009, the US Department of Homeland Security has a National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC). A 24-hour, DHS-led coordinated watch and warning center that will improve national efforts to address threats and incidents affecting the nation's critical information technology and cyber infrastructure. 

Cyber threats are critical threats for US security nowadays but new President elected, Donald Trump, decided to named Rudy Giuliani as his special advisor on cybersecurity issues.
