A recent report by the Technology Users Association of New Zealand (TUANZ) has revealed that we are ranked 56th in the world when it comes to cybersecurity. Why are we so far behind other countries, and what must be done for us to be better?
TUANZ is a 35-year-old independent organisation that represents the people who use technology. Its CEO, Craig Young, says they want Aotearoa to be in the top 10 digitally ready nations by 2030, which includes getting up to speed on cybersecurity.
The ranking is based on the international network readiness index by the Portulans Institute – and it’s not looking good for New Zealand.
“This year’s report is based on 2021 research and we’ve dropped down to 20th from 16th,” he says.
