The stakes couldn’t be any higher in the global cybersecurity arena.

From Russia’s alleged role in the DNC hacks to this month’s revealing Vault 7 leak of nearly 9,000 CIA documents, it should now be clear that keeping data safe is of paramount importance for any organization. Leaks and hacks are causing irreparable damage across the board – and it is now more essential than ever before for individuals, organizations, and countries to be aware of common cybersecurity threats and how to prevent them.

Is Your Country Prepared for Cyber Attacks?

Today’s infographic comes to us from CompariTech, and it breaks down the countries most prepared for cyber attacks, as well as those that are the most susceptible targets for cyber criminals.

These Are the Countries Most (and Least) Prepared for Cyber Attacks

Perhaps the most interesting takeaway is that although the United States ranks high in terms of preparedness, it is also the number one target for web application attacks and cyber espionage. Further, the U.S. is the second-most targeted country in terms of DDoS (Denial of Service) attacks behind China.

With the average cost of a cyber attack in the U.S. sitting at a hefty $17.4 million, organizations and government departments can’t afford to run the risk of any type of information breach. This means that companies and organizations of practically any size should think about what they can do to beef up security, as long as mitigating these risks will outweigh the costs.

Data and Takeaways

All of the numbers we used to create this graphic are included in the table below.

CompanyMarket Cap
(as of May 23, 2024)
Nvidia$2.5T
Meta$1.2T
Tesla$553B
Netflix$272B
AMD$257B
Intel$128B
IBM$157B

These figures are even more impressive when you consider that at the beginning of 2020, Nvidia was valued at a relatively tiny $145 billion.

Since then, the company has greatly surpassed other American chipmakers like Intel and AMD. This growth is due to several key factors:

  • Expansion into AI and data centers: Nvidia’s chips are highly effective for AI training, making them essential for companies engaged in machine learning and generative AI
  • Advancements in AI software: Nvidia has developed AI software platforms, such as CUDA-X and TensorRT, which are widely used by researchers.
  • Strong financial performance: Nvidia has consistently delivered strong financial results in recent years, with substantial revenue growth.

Closing in on Apple

With Nvidia’s latest stock surge (up 13.5% over the past five days ending May 24, 2024), the company could possibly overtake Apple to become the world’s second most valuable company.

Microsoft, another major player in AI, holds the #1 spot with a market cap of $3.2 trillion.
