Insurance for Cyber Risks

Despite the growing presence of cyber-attacks, research shows that businesses and charities still lack the proper measures to stop threats.

 

In some ways, smaller businesses are more vulnerable to cybercrime compared to bigger firms. This is because they are less likely to have teams of IT specialists in place to prevent or respond to a data breach, or the resources to invest heavily in cyber security.
