43% of cyber attacks target small businesses. 60% of small businesses that are victims of a cyber attack go out of business within six months. Cybercrime costs small and medium businesses more than $2.2 million a year. In fact, a 2016 survey performed by Chubb shows that more than 25 percent of private companies experienced a claim over a three-year period and the ones that did not buy D&O insurance reported an average loss of nearly $400,000.
