Hanover Specialty Research Series
Cyber Risk Report
Our survey, conducted with Zogby Analytics, found that businesses understand the message about the significant exposure they have to cyber incidents – and are taking steps to protect themselves. Business decision makers revealed that independent agents have played a significant role in building broad awareness about the importance of cyber protection and, as a result, a majority of business report they:
- Have cyber insurance
- Feel confident about their coverage
- Have taken steps to mitigate cyber risk within their organizations
However, cyberattacks are on the rise.1 As cyberattacks become more frequent and more complex, businesses – even those with some cyber protection in place – face several emerging risks they may not be aware of. As a result, they may lack the protection they need to stay in business.
surveyed reported experiencing a cyberattack in the last year.
