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.

Recommendations

Japan and APAC is the recognized leader in electronics manufacturing, which is a digitalized industry today. As a result, cybercriminals who are totally committed to digital technologies can use the business IT infrastructures provided to spread attacks inside and beyond the region. SCADA systems can also be subject to accidental attacks. We recommend using all the latest IT security technologies and services, especially an advanced endpoint protection platform including EDR, embedded systems protection, and a threat intelligence based SOC.

*These statistics are based on results from an online survey of 3,063 business representatives from companies with 50 and up to 4,999 employees around the world, conducted in 2021 by Kaspersky and B2B International. Statistics based on less than 30 respondents should be used with caution, due to this being a low base.

** The methodology for measuring endpoint protection represents the penetration of endpoint protection in businesses meaning the proportion of corporate endpoints (both physical devices and virtual endpoints) that have endpoint security software installed in the average organization of this vertical and segment
