Calculate your company's security profile

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

The smooth operation of European businesses depends on the resilience of their online services to DDoS attacks. This puts integrated DDoS attack mitigation strategies in high demand. Another key role in most cybersecurity incidents is the human factor. Thus, raising employees' cyber awareness should be one of the top priorities for European companies, especially in the wake of new GDPR regulations coming into effect in 2018.

*These statistics are based on results from an online survey of 5,266 business representatives from companies with 50 and up to 4,999 employees around the world, conducted in 2020 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 significant increase in the IT security budget in 2020 may be caused by the change of the survey sample for several verticals and significant fluctuations in budgets in these verticals.

** The methodology for measuring endpoint protection has been changed: now it 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.
