A new survey of 1,009 businesses revealed 65% of SMEs plan to spend more on cyber insurance in the next two years, compared with 58% of large enterprises. More than 70% of SMEs have a coverage limit lower than $1 million and less than the total cost of expenses and loss related to a cyberattack they have experienced in the past or expect to face in the future.
