Survey: Cyber Security in Germany

06/04/2019        Cyber Security

Every third company in Germany became a victim of cyber-attacks in 2018. This is the result of the Cyber Security Survey conducted by the Federal Office for Information Security. In almost 90% of the cases, the attackers were successful and caused business interruptions. This, in turn, produced costs for forensic investigations and the restoration of IT systems. Moreover, every fifth company affected suffered reputational damage.


A total of 1039 companies and institutions participated in the survey. According to the Federal Office, 57 percent of the participants were small and medium-sized companies with between 1 and 249 employees. Most of the survey participants (77%) work as IT security managers in their companies.
