Recent research by B2B International for Kaspersky Lab shows that protecting against cyber-threats is one of the most important tasks facing all types of businesses (SMEs and Enterprise). Viruses, spam, software vulnerabilities and careless handling of confidential information are just some of the problems faced by IT professionals on a regular basis. A growing problem that was more evident in 2012 is the management of employees accessing the corporate IT infrastructure with their personal mobile devices.
In terms of actions that companies can take, increasing the level of computer literacy among staff is an essential along with making sure top management are fully aware of the potential consequences of cyber-threats. Currently only half of the experts in the 2012 survey feel their company is ready to face today’s cyber-threats.

About the research:
In 2011 Kaspersky Lab, in partnership with B2B International, carried out a survey covering IT professionals working for large and medium-sized businesses. The aim of the survey was to find out what IT specialists thought of corporate security solutions, to ascertain their level of knowledge about current threats, the sort of problems they most often face, their ability to evaluate the risks associated with cyber-threats, etc. A year later, the two companies conducted a similar survey expanding the geography and the number of respondents. This gave us the opportunity not only to assess the situation in the sphere of corporate security in 2012 but also to compare the results with those obtained the previous year and to note the main trends.
