It is George, but you need to be careful in simply drawing the conclusion 
domain policy=security.

For example NZ rated as marginally more secure, and they have a completely 
open domain policy ie the same as .com, or I could pick out say .ie which has 
an open second level but criteria around domain use, or Germany (.de) which is 
rated marginally less secure.

I'd argue having a strong regulator participating in all levels of the space 
would have more to do with the ranking than the existing policy. Wait did I 
just say something good about auDA?
