Security assessment of corporate information systems in 2017

Each year, Kaspersky Lab’s Security Services department carries out dozens of cybersecurity assessment projects for companies worldwide. In this publication, we present a general summary and statistics for the cybersecurity assessments we have conducted of corporate information systems throughout 2017.

We have analyzed several dozen projects for companies from various sectors, including government bodies, financial organizations, telecommunications and IT companies, as well as manufacturing and energy companies. The results and statistics on detected vulnerabilities are provided separately for each type of service provided: external penetration testing, internal penetration testing, web application security assessment.
