2nd July 2019
Posted by Aston Avery

It’s a silent risk but more than one in five (22%) British businesses have had a recent cyber-attack that has cost their business financially. The YouGov cyber survey, commissioned by SJL Insurance, spoke to more than 1000 (1051) senior decision makers from British businesses, ranging from sole traders to large corporations.

In the most extreme cases, 2% companies who knew the amount they had lost through cyber-crime admitted the breach cost them more than 250 million pounds. More than a quarter (27%) of businesses say their company has experienced at least one cyber-attack.

Aston spoke to Simon Lancaster, insurance champion to educate everyone in how they can increase their chances of securing more money in their claim.
