India is establishing itself as a worldwide IT giant, asserting its digital sovereignty through strong steps to protect citizens’ data privacy and online rights. India has climbed 37 places to tenth place in the ITU’s Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI) 2020, ranking as the world’s tenth best country on critical cyber safety metrics.
According to the ranking, India has climbed 37 places to become the tenth best country in the world in the Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI) 2020, which was released on June 29, 2021 by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

The United States led the list, with the United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia tied for second place, and Estonia coming in third.
Countries were ranked based on their performance on five criteria: legal measures, technical measures, organisational measures, capacity development, and collaboration.
All of the countries’ performance and commitment were rated for each of the five elements using a question-based online survey that also allowed for the collection of supporting evidence.
The GCI results for India demonstrate significant overall development and strengthening across all cybersecurity categories. India received a total of 97.5 points out of a possible 100 points in the GCI 2020, putting it in tenth place globally.

Over the previous few years, India has worked tirelessly on all five pillars, resulting in a significant improvement in its standing in the Global Cyber Security Index and also in coming times we will be able to see many more improvements.
