The Chubb Asia Pacific SME Cyber Preparedness Report - ‘Ignorance is Risk’, revealed that Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) across Australia, Hong Kong SAR, Malaysia and Singapore remain unprepared to manage cyber risks, with a disconnect between perceived and actual risk. 81% of SMEs appeared confident that they are prepared to face cyber attacks; yet 55% of them are, in fact, unaware of all the cyber threats they face.
The regional report also showed that 48% of SMEs had spent time improving cyber risk management, with only 46% having a data breach response plan. The lack of preparedness is heightened by the high number of actual cyber incidents affecting SMEs in the past 12 months - more than two-thirds (68%) of SMEs across the four markets experienced a cyber incident.
