The results of a Germany-wide survey of 5,000 companies with ten or more employees on the subject of cyber-attacks, which was carried out as part of the project “Cyber-attacks against companies”, are now also available in English in KFN Research Report No. 158.
In particular, the survey focused on the prevalence of different types of cyber-attacks within a year, their consequences for the companies affected and possible factors that can increase or reduce the risk of being affected by such cyber-attacks.
This project is funded by the initiative “IT-Sicherheit in der Wirtschaft” of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi). Additional funding is provided by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and the VHV Foundation.
