Enterprises with an internal Security Operation Center (SOC) estimate their financial damage from a cyberattack at $675k[DM1] , which is less than half the average impact cost for all enterprise-level organizations ($1.41m[DM2] ), a new survey from Kaspersky and B2B International has revealed. Among other changes that a business can employ to reduce losses from a data breach is to employ a Data Protection Officer (DPO), as 34% of companies [DM3] of all sizes with this dedicated role reported that a cyber incident did not result in monetary loses.Every year, data breaches are becoming more expensive for enterprises. In 2019, this cost has risen to $1.41m[DM4] , up from $1.23 million the previous year, the new ‘IT security economics in 2019: how businesses are losing money and saving costs amid cyberattacks’ report by Kaspersky shows. In response to this, large organizations are investing more in cybersecurity: this year enterprise IT security budgets averaged $18.9m[DM5] , compared to $8.9m in 2018.

 

As the report demonstrates, investing in security software and IT security professionals brings results. This is reflected in companies with an internal SOC experiencing less damage from data breaches.

 

Enterprises can look to reduce the financial impact of a data breach by building an internal SOC, responsible for the ongoing monitoring of security events and incident response. Adopting an SOC halves monetary loses from data breaches to just $675k[DM6] . There are savings for larger SMBs (with 500+ employees) who adopt an SOC as well, with the total financial impact of a data breach for these businesses estimated at $106k, compared to $129k [DM7] for the average SMB of this size.

Outsourced SOCs however, don’t reduce the cost of data breaches for enterprises. Our survey showed that outsourcing security to a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) may actually increase the financial impact, particularly if the company uses an under-qualified subcontractor: 23% of companies that use an MSSP experienced a financial impact of between $100k-249k[DM8] , while only 19% of businesses with an in-house IT team reported this level of damage.

 

Another way to keep the cost of a breach down is by hiring a DPO. This is an employee who is responsible for building and implementing data protection strategy within a company, as well as managing compliance issues. The survey highlighted that more than one-third of organizations (34%) with[DM9] a DPO that suffered a data breach did not incur any financial loss, compared to only one-fifth (20%) of businesses overall.

 

“Establishing an internal SOC involves purchasing the necessary tools, building processes and recruiting analysts, which can be a challenge for any business. Likewise, finding a DPO, who can combine IT security and legal knowledge, is not an easy task. These require time and budgets, and security leaders often find it difficult to justify such initiatives. But as we can see, these are worthwhile investments. Of course, just having a dedicated employee or even special subdivision does not guarantee that a company will not suffer a data breach, however, it does ensure that the business is prepared for these incidents, allowing them to recover from an attack more quickly and efficiently,” comments Veniamin Levtsov, VP, Corporate Business at Kaspersky.

 

To empower internal SOCs, Kaspersky offers solutions and services, including Kaspersky EDR, Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack, Kaspersky Threat Intelligence and Kaspersky Cybersecurity Training portfolio. They help to overcome the most common barriers to a working SOC, such as the lack of enterprise-wide visibility or insufficient threat information, as well as improving its performance.
