Poland has secured the top spot in the prestigious National Cyber Security Index (NCSI), affirming its readiness to oppose cyber threats on a global scale. Scoring 90.83 points, Poland surpassed 31 other nations, including Australia and Estonia, securing a significant advantage. Poland’s cybersecurity expertise is evident in this achievement, as noted by Adam Marczyński, Deputy Director of NASK PIB for Cybersecurity and Innovation:

Undoubtedly, Poland’s distinction in the ranking is a reason to be proud of the work of our experts specializing in cybersecurity and protecting us against threats every day. However, no ranking can lull our vigilance and readiness to act. The situation in this area is still difficult and requires constant attention, building skills, and developing methods and tools.

Poland’s robust cybersecurity architecture, including three national-level Tech Teams, called Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs), underscores its proactive stance in fortifying cyber defenses.

Poland’s triumph in the NCSI rankings not only underscores its cybersecurity prowess but also highlights the nation’s exceptional technological proficiency and advancement in the IT sphere. With a burgeoning tech industry, a skilled workforce, and remarkable achievements in IT recruitment, Poland continues to cement its position as a global leader in cybersecurity and innovation.

The NCSI, developed by the Estonian e-Governance Academy, serves as a vital benchmark for cybersecurity readiness, offering insights into areas requiring improvement. You can check Poland’s profile on the NCSI website to study the statistics closer.
