Rapid7 Study On Internet Safety: US Most Exposed, China 2nd, India 17th
An already internet-dependent society banked on it even more once the coronavirus pandemic hit us. Be it working or studying from home, the internet has become an integral part of our life in the present circumstances.
But how secure is the internet?
“Much of our personal, professional and social lives reside on the internet, particularly now, in the midst of a global health pandemic. But how vulnerable is all this information? How exposed are our lives? Colleagues at our parent company, Rapid7, explored this idea by conducting in-depth research to find out how exposed the internet is today,” says Security Boulevard, a daughter company to internet security company Rapid7.
According to the Rapid7 study, the US is the most exposed in terms of cybersecurity followed by China, while India ranks 17th on the list.
The report consists of findings related to internet safety, various applications that rose to popularity following the sudden necessity of staying connected and cloud storage.
