EIOPA Cyber Insurance Survey for SMEs

September 2023

On 20th September 2023, the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (“EIOPA”) has launched a survey on access to cyber insurance by small and medium-sized enterprises (“SMEs”) to better understand the challenges SMEs face in protecting themselves against cyber risks and assess the level of access to cyber insurance.

The survey will collect information on the size and type of business of the companies surveyed, the level of awareness of cyber risks in relation to their business, the availability, affordability and understanding of cyber insurance products. It will also highlight SMEs’ experience and perceptions of cyber insurance, including whether they have considered taking out a policy, the factors that influenced their decision (not to) take out cover and potential barriers to taking out cover.

SMEs are invited to take part until 20th March 2024. Access the survey HERE.
