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 Lab.

Recommendations

You may not have a dedicated IT person in your team, but you should know that you will, at some point, have to deal with malware – if your company operates with financial transactions, it's very likely that your business will come under cybercriminal fire sooner or later. To effectively counter this threat, install a multi-layered security solution that fends off malware, protects your valuable data from ransomware, and allows for safe banking.

Small-to-medium enterprises, operating in the financial sector of North America, also encounter cyber incidents with third party cloud services, and with POS terminals.

This means that in order to efficiently counter these likely threats, you are encouraged to deploy cloud security and embedded systems security solutions.
