Only 9 per cent of UK SMEs have insurance in place to protect from a cyber threat despite the fact that more than one quarter (28 per cent) said they would go bust if faced with an unexpected £50,000 bill, according to a commercial insurer. Yet the average cost of an attack is higher than this at between £65,000 and £115,000.
This risky attitude towards cyber threat comes despite the danger it poses to small businesses, with a significant majority having been subject to an attack, as well as a series of high-profile cyber-attacks on large companies in 2016.
SMEs are increasingly becoming a target for cyber criminals because they are less likely to have adequate cyber security measures in place. Yet three quarters (74 per cent) of SMEs questioned do not believe that their business needs this cover, or do not understand how it would protect their business.
Common attacks on SMEs include data breaches where confidential files are put at risk; the use of ransomware by fraudsters who try to extort cash from businesses by blocking access to their systems; and hack attacks in which hackers gain access to a company network in order to get hold of sensitive information including customer bank details.
High profile attacks aren’t motivating SMEs
Despite an onset of high-profile cyber threats recently, including Yahoo, Tesco Bank, and Talk Talk, businesses are not protecting themselves sufficiently. Research indicates that many businesses are more likely to take out cover when the threat becomes real to them. When questioned, over half (53 per cent) of those with some form of cover have experienced an attack or know of someone who has had an attack.
Age is a determining factor when considering the need for cyber cover. The figures reveal that while 37 per cent of 18 to 34-year-old business owners surveyed have considered cyber cover, only 9 per cent of those over 55 have done the same.
The DDoS/DoS works in co-operation with the Proxy Based DDoS and Network DDoS models to track usage patterns and identify attack sources for suppression/mitigation and blacklisting. Examples of techniques used include:
- Connection rate limiting
- Request rate limiting
- Negative response rate limiting
- Repeat request limiting
- Request duration limiting
Research from Ipsos and Gov.uk found that just under half (46%) of all businesses identified at least one breach or attack in the last year. The most common types of breaches related to staff receiving fraudulent emails (72% of those who identified a breach or attack), followed by viruses and malware (33%), people impersonating the organisation online (27%) and ransomware (17%). Breaches were often linked to human factors, highlighting the importance of staff awareness and vigilance. However, few businesses currently provide staff with cyber security training (20%) or have formal policies in this area (33%). Technical controls are also important, with nine in ten businesses regularly updating their software and malware protections, configuring firewalls or securely backing up their data, but only around two-thirds (69%) having guidance on acceptably strong passwords.
