London and the UK have one of the strongest cyber security frameworks world-wide, providing firms with a highly resilient business environment
In the latest ITU Global Cybersecurity Index, assessing a market’s cyber security initiatives covering legal, technical, and organisational areas as well as capacity building and cooperation, the UK ranks first amongst all global financial centres.
The US and Singapore follow. At city-level, London, New York City, Tokyo, and Singapore are all leading centres for digital security, with London having made the most improvement between 2015 and 2019. The rich ecosystem security created by UK government and industry, supported by the City of London Police and the City Corporation’s collaboration with business, underpins this.
Whether citizens are aware of digital threats and if cities have dedicated cyber security teams increase a centre’s cyber safety and thus operational resilience.
