North Africa is the finest location for remote work
Morocco and Tunisia are the best African countries for remote work, according to new data.
NordLayer's Global Remote Work Index is based on cyber safety, economic safety, digital and physical infrastructure, and social safety factors.
Denmark tops the global rankings.
Only Morocco (48th) ranks in the worldwide Top 50 among the 20 African countries included in the survey. The tourism attractiveness (16th) and cyber safety (19th), which includes an excellent response capacity (5th), aided the North African country.
Morocco is followed by Tunisia (53rd), which ranks 18th in terms of tourism attractiveness. Mauritius (58th) is not far behind, with good infrastructure (9th) and tourism attraction (14th).
Most African countries are near the bottom of the rankings, with Angola ranked the lowest, 108th out of 108.
Zimbabwe and Mozambique are close behind, ranking 106th and 107th, respectively.
This low rating is primarily due to the fact that Uganda, Cameroon, Senegal, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Tanzania, and Angola have among the weakest digital and physical infrastructures.
"In the age of remote work, cyber security is not just an option," Donatas Tamelis, managing director at NordLayer, remarked.
According to Tamelis, it is a fundamental requirement to safeguard data and defend organisations from growing cyber threats.
"While working remotely provides new opportunities, it also exposes us to potential security risks. Our first line of defence is cyber security vigilance," Tamelis said.
