What is Cybersecurity?
Cybersecurity is the result of the expanded exposure of people’s critical information on the web, including personal data, personally identifiable information, healthcare information, and more. The industry is horizontal, crossing many other industries such as energy, consumer products, government services, media, and more. Cybersecurity is central to the functioning of these sectors, as well as our economy as a whole.
There has been a massive increase in the “bad side” of cybersecurity. Whereas cyberattacks may have referred to petty theft, we now see massive attacks on both personal and national levels. Economically, there’s an entire industry on the wrong side which creates an explosive industry on the good side. The minute a cybersecurity capability that can block hackers’ tactics is found, the bad guys figure out a way around it, creating a continuous lifecycle for the cybersecurity industry.
