IT Specialists Believe Cyber-Threats Will Become Top Business Risk

Kaspersky Lab UK : 23 August, 2012  (Technical Article)
A study by Kaspersky Lab has shown that cyber-threats could soon become the top risk faced by businesses with over two-fifths unprepared for the associated challenges
IT Specialists Believe Cyber-Threats Will Become Top Business Risk

Cyber-threats are predicted to be the number one business risk within the next two years, according to the latest survey from B2B International and Kaspersky Lab. The survey, involving over 3,300 IT specialists in 22 countries worldwide, found that cyber-threats were viewed as second only to economic uncertainty in terms of current business risk.

Other IT security risks identified as amongst the top three concerns of organisations included the theft of intellectual property (cited by 31 per cent of participants), fraud (26 per cent) and industrial espionage (24 per cent).

Although such threats existed long before malware emerged, data theft, fraud and industrial spying are all now typically conducted through cyber-attacks.  The picture painted is of an environment under siege, with an alarming 41 per cent of businesses acknowledging themselves as unready to face cyber-threats. For companies, effective protection from current levels of cybercrime means implementing unified security policies across the organisation, as well as building a comprehensive system for the entire IT infrastructure.

Kaspersky Lab can provide this level of cyber-security through a range of effective business solutions to ensure the security of important network nodes (file and mail servers) and workstations running under Windows, Linux or MacOSX. Protecting data on smartphones connected to corporate networks is also critical and is accomplished by Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Smartphone. Managing the entire IT security infrastructure is handled through a single console provided by Kaspersky Security Centre.

The effectiveness of Kaspersky Lab’s solutions in combating cybercrime is widely known.
