A Comparitech survey shows Ireland tops the list of 47 countries in protecting the privacy of its citizens, the Bangkok Post reports. The study assessed privacy protection and the state of surveillance in the countries surveyed, examining several categories, including the use of biometrics and data sharing and retention laws. Ireland scored 3.2 out of 5, topping the list due to its Data Protection Commission’s active role and general resistance toward the introduction of biometrics on ID cards. China, Russia, India, Malaysia and Thailand ranked among the worst in privacy protection, with China being the worst with a 1.8 out 5.
