This is the ultimate guide to the cost of IT security. Select the details that match your company to see the average budgets your industry peers spend on IT security (by region, industry, size), what security measures they take, the major threat vectors they encounter, how much money they lose as a result, and what you can do to avoid being compromised. The Calculator has been created as an adjustable tool. The data presented can be updated and/or added to over time based on insights from customers and Kaspersky Lab.

Recommendations

Retail and wholesale companies rely heavily on the staff they employ. In the digital age, they encounter cyberthreats such as malware, the inappropriate use of IT infrastructure by staff, and the physical loss of devices or media containing sensitive data. While the malware threat can be effectively mitigated by up-to-date information security solutions, including security solutions for POS terminals, the only way to improve the IT security performance of staff is through regular cyber-awareness training.
