Chapter 5: Chapter 5

Zeinab Karake, Rana A. Shalhoub and Huda Ayas


The main thrust of Chapter 5 deals with identifying appropriate variables to measure the level of maturity of cybersecurity policy identified in the formulated hypotheses, create the cybersecurity index, develop a predictive statistical model and present the results of the regression analysis, isolating the statically significant variables. The chapter also discusses the classification of the countries in our sample into five different categories based on the level of maturity of their cybersecurity policy: These are the Cheetahs, the Gazelles, the Bears, the Koalas and the Tortoises.
