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.

Companies that rely on monetary transactions for their core business have always been a lucrative target for cybercriminals. With advances in fraud technologies, cybercriminals are switching their focus away from the ‘easy pickings’ of customers to the more challenging but rewarding targets provided by services providers themselves. The most pressing issues for financial services providers are: targeted attacks, embedded systems security (ATMs, POS), the human factor, cloud availability, fraud and ransomware. All interconnected security systems aim to address the rapid detection of sophisticated attacks, but the response and prediction security stages are generally the subject of less attention, while they actually require greater levels of investment. Anti-targeted attack solutions, embedded systems security and specialized solutions for use in datacenters – all of these are ‘must-haves’ for financial services businesses.

Financial institutions in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa tend to suffer the most from employees falling prey to phishing emails, targeted attacks, and incidents with third-party service providers. Therefore, cybersecurity training aimed at raising the level of cyber awareness is the most pressing requirement, along with anti-targeted attack and cloud security solutions. ATMs and POS attacks are becoming more and more dangerous, so now is a good time to think about the security of these embedded systems.
