SDA then analyzed the quantitative results, and authored the Global Cyber Defense Report. This report examines the current state of cyber-preparedness around the world and was created to help governments and organizations understand how their cyber defense compares to other countries and organizations. SDA report paints, for the first time, a picture of a global snapshot of current thinking about the cyber-threat and the measures that should be taken to defend against it, and assesses the way ahead.
