UK makes it into global ICT top ten

US still an IT 'powerhouse'

SANS - Survey on application security programs

The UK has stormed into the top ten of the world's IT nations, according to a report by the World Economic Forum, which attempts to assess the success of countries using IT and the net to increase competitiveness and economic growth.

While the UK is up two places to 10 in the Global Information Technology Report (GITR), the US has once again regained its number one slot (the third time in five years) "maintaining its eminent position as a leader in the area of innovation and confirming its position as an information and communication technology powerhouse".

The report's authors say that the US' top placing reflects "an impressive performance in the areas of ICT physical infrastructure, a broadly supportive market environment and high levels of business and government usage of the latest technologies".

In second place is Singapore, which has "an excellent regulatory environment, world-class levels of education and training, and a government that is committed to enhancing the use of the latest technologies across all sectors of the economy". Taking up the third slot is Denmark, followed by Iceland, Finland and Sweden in eighth place.
