The U.S. and U.K. are relatively well prepared for cyber attacks, compared to many other developed nations, but everyone has more work to do, according to a new cyber security study from McAfee and Security & Defence Agenda (SDA).

The report, which ranks 23 countries on cyber security readiness, gives no countries the highest mark, five stars. Israel, Sweden and Finland each get four and a half stars, while eight countries, including the U.S., U.K., France and Germany, receive four stars. India, Brazil and Mexico ranked near the bottom.

No country is ahead of cyber attackers, said Phyllis Schneck, CTO of the public sector for McAfee. The bad guys are “faster and swifter” than the good guys, she said.
