Abstract: Cyber attacks have developed and created damage in a wide range of areas. The damage to an attack can lead to costs of tens of millions of dollars or may lead to the complete dissolution of an industry. The problem is that the impact is increasing, because the surface in which attackers can activate is more and more widespread. Therefore, it is imperative to prevent attacks. This paper presents a detailed analysis of the cost of a cyber attack based on statistics by large companies as well as by researchers on the costs of preventing an attack, the costs of attack types, but the ways to solve the damage.
Keywords: cyberattack, costs, prevention.
