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.

Recommendations

North America is one of the most developed regions from an IT and telecommunications standpoint, which makes this area a high priority for attackers armed with the latest cyberthreats. So North American companies should be ready to be ‘early adopters,’ implementing all the latest IT security technologies e.g. anti-targeted attack systems, EDR, industrial security systems and threat intelligence, as soon as they become available. A cloud security strategy is critical, as so many business processes in this region are dependent on public cloud infrastructures (such as AWS and AZURE).
