Recommendations

Being an agile company in the retail and wholesale segment means you have no time to lose on fixing the consequences of malware infections on your systems. You are encouraged to deploy a comprehensive multi-layered cybersecurity solution in order to prevent an infection from happening. Another big problem for this sector is the inappropriate use of IT resources by staff, which cannot be solved without regular cyber awareness training.

In Europe, customer data is treated with special care. Therefore, the prevention of data leakage even in the case of the physical loss of devices or media, which is not an uncommon event for your region, should be the key focus of 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.
