A survey of 1,500 small business owners, carried out by Aviva, has revealed mixed attitudes towards cybercrime. Four in ten respondents did not believe they were at risk from cybercrime, and nearly two thirds did not know or were unsure about how they would react to an attack.
However, more than one in three small business owners surveyed had experienced a cyberattack, and three quarters of these respondents estimated that it had cost them up to £1,000 to remedy. Commenting on the findings, Angus Eaton, Managing Director of Commercial Lines at Aviva, warned small business owners that it was a mistake to think criminals would only target big business.
