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.
