The Nordic region has the most digitalised countries in the world

…but many small and medium-sized companies still have a long way to go when it comes to data security.

In the 2017 Digibarometer survey, Norway was ranked the most digitalised country in the world, closely followed by Finland, Sweden and Denmark. Etlatieto, a branch of Etla, the Research Institute of the Finnish Economy, has investigated and compared how around 20 countries utilise digitalisation. They looked at the scope for digitalisation in these countries, how digitalisation is currently used, and the outcomes it produces. They examined what forms it takes in enterprises, for private individuals and in the public sector.
