Consumer comparison site Comparitech has compiled a report on the best (and worst) countries for cybersecurity around the world, with Japan coming top.

Japan had the lowest percentage of mobile malware infections in the report, while France was among those with the most up-to-date legislation for cybersecurity. Denmark was noted to have the lowest percentage of computer malware infections as well as the lowest percentage of attacks by crypto miners.

Singapore (which was 10th best overall) was named best prepared for cyber attacks, while the lowest number of financial malware attacks happened in the Ukraine – however the Ukraine was only ranked 40th most secure on the overall list.
