Kaspersky Lab: 40% of Russian Companies Unprepared for Cyber Threats

October 26, 2012. According to Kaspersky Lab and B2B International’s research carried out in July 2012, Russian companies see cyber threats as one of the key factors that jeopardize their businesses. However, in 40% of cases, these companies’ IT infrastructure is not secure enough to resist the malefactors’ cyber attacks, Kaspersky Lab’s press office reports.

42% of Russia-based companies don’t have enough intellectual property theft prevention systems, and 41% are positive that the infrastructure protection system they use cannot prevent industrial espionage from happening.

Kaspersky Lab Deputy Director for Corporate Sales Sergey Kulkov says that among the potentially harmful resources are social networks, removable data media, access to websites and file-sharing systems, and private electronic mail.

Among the most vulnerable programs are Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Flash Player, and Winamp Media Player.
