Submission + - Rich Countries Better At Protecting Citizens...From Malware (securityledger.com)

chicksdaddy writes: "To paraphrase a quote attributed to F. Scott Fitzgerald: ‘Rich countries aren’t like everyone else. They have less malware.’ That’s the conclusion of a special Security Intelligence Report from Microsoft, anyway. The special supplement, released on Wednesday, investigated the links between rates of computer infections and a range of national characteristics including the relative wealth of a nation, observance of the rule of law and the rate of software piracy. The conclusion: cyber security (by Microsoft’s definition: low rates of malware infection) correlated negatively with many characteristics of wealth nations – high Gross Income Per Capita, higher broadband penetration and investment in R&D and high rates of literacy. It correlated positively with characteristics common in poorer nations – like demographic instability, political instability and lower levels of education."
