SMEs lack cover against cyber crime

A survey by Aon Risk Solutions has revealed that just 4% of SMEs have insurance to cover themselves against cyber crime. It is only a slight improvement on the 3% figure recorded in the first quarter, despite recent high-profile attacks against the likes of JD Wetherspoon and TalkTalk. Breaking down the data, the risk management arm of the insurance giant found that only 5% of SMEs in the IT and telecoms sector and 8% in finance and accounting had protection.
