Recommendations

For companies working with government entities it is imperative to be 100% compliant with national legislature. Among the top concerns for your company are incidents with malware and the inappropriate use of IT resources by staff. While the first concern is effectively addressed by a comprehensive multi-layered security solution, the second requires raising cyber awareness among employees with training from cybersecurity professionals.

European government entities may suffer from disruption to their online services because of DDoS attacks, unless they deploy an integrated DDoS protection solution. There is also a noticeable surge in devices and media being reported lost, which puts an even stronger emphasis on cybersecurity training.

*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.
