A third of UK small businesses are risking their online safety by operating at or below the “security poverty line,” according to new research from Duo Security.

The cybersecurity company partnered with YouGov to survey 1,0009 senior decision makers across the UK to determine how much they are spending on cybersecurity and whether government initiatives such as Cyber Essentials and Cyber Risk Aware have been effective at protecting SMBs from cyber threats.

The survey found that 38 percent of small businesses had spent nothing at all to protect themselves from cybersecurity threats this year and 30 percent of respondents said that less than three percent of their overall budget was allocated for cybersecurity.

Duo Security’s survey also revealed that 36 percent of UK small businesses are operating at or below the security poverty line and are close to being unable to effectively protect their organization from cybersecurity threats. Despite this though, 45 percent of those surveyed do not consider themselves to be possible targets for hackers.
