In 2019, 21% of EU enterprises with 10 or more persons employed reported having insurance against ICT security incidents. The share varies from 20% of small enterprises and 28% of medium enterprises to 35% of large enterprises. This can be partially explained by the fact that large enterprises are more likely to be affected by problems resulting from ICT security incidents.
