Estonia among the least vulnerable to cybercrime in Europe

Estonia is among the least vulnerable to cybercrime in the European Union, according to Website Builder Expert, a website that studied the extent to which the EU is vulnerable to cybercrime.

Estonia is ranked 27th among the 28 EU countries, only Finland doing a little better in the field. Estonia has the vulnerability ranking of 30%, Finland 29%, Estonian World writes.

The most vulnerable to cybercrime in the EU is Malta with a 41% ranking, followed by Greece, Romania and Slovakia. Latvia is 14th and Lithuania sixth most vulnerable to cybercrime in the EU.

To come up with the ranking, the research looked at a range of factors to measure how vulnerable the EU countries were. Website Builder Expert looked at how many residents of each country had experienced cybercrime, how were they encountering malware and viruses, but also each nation’s commitment to cyber security initiatives and how exposed internet connections were in each country.
