Iceland became the world’s best protector of internet freedom, having registered no civil or criminal cases against users for online expression during the coverage period, according to a report by an internet watchdog.
The Freedom House, an international internet rights group in its report titled ‘Freedom on the Net’ (FoTN) 2019: The Crisis of Social Media said The Iceland boasts enviable conditions, including near-universal connectivity, limited restrictions on content, and strong protections for users’ rights.
However, a sophisticated nationwide phishing scheme challenged this free environment and its cybersecurity infrastructure in 2018, it added.
Freedom on the Net is a comprehensive study of internet freedom in 65 countries around the globe, covering 87% of the world’s internet users.
It tracks improvements and declines in internet freedom conditions each year.
