Expected change to IT security budget in three years
Industrial and manufacturing companies are suffering most from a threat that is commonly overlooked-generic malware, which gets right inside the industrial network. This means the implementation of cybersecurity solutions, that are designed for industrial and manufacturing organizations and that are aware of specific OT assets, are imperative. To further improve cybersafety, it is recommended that these organizations invest in cybersecurity services that include regular cyber awareness training.
Latin American industrial and manufacturing companies suffer from fraud, and are often the subject of generic malware outbreaks.

*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.
