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

Europe is a world leader both in the implementation of IT and telecommunications technologies and in manufacturing and industry. As a result, the cyberthreat landscape is very broad-based in this region. With human error playing a major role in most cybersecurity incidents, raising employee cyber awareness should be one of the top priorities for European companies, especially in the wake of the new GDPR regulations coming into effect in May 2018.

*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.
