There’s a troubling undercurrent to our new normal. With more people connected to the internet, instances of everything from denial-of-service attacks to phishing scams to ransomware are on the rise. So far this year, 80% of companies have reported an increase in cyberattacks. There’s been a 148% increase in ransomware attacks. The number of attacks against banks has soared 238%. Meanwhile, phishing attacks have surged 600% since February. Cloud-based attacks have skyrocketed by 630%. Cybercrime is rising at an alarming level, and like never before, it’s the companies on whom we rely to protect our most critical infrastructure that are under the spotlight, propelled by fresh demand for their products and services from governments, companies and even individuals in need of better safety, security and privacy. The thesis for cybersecurity companies was already clear, and this year, it has become stronger than ever as the world continues to herald its crusade against cybercrime and hackers wreaking havoc across our digital environments.
In this webinar, Rahul Bhushan, co-founder of Rize ETF, will provide a global outlook for the cybersecurity sector for 2021 and beyond. We will unpack the last 12 months of performance, exploring the latest industry trends and how specific companies have been stand-out performers this year and why. We will also look back at market projections for 2020, and whether or not the cybersecurity sector achieved those projections. We will finally present the cybercrime landscape of the 21st century, and the growth rates we can expect from the cybersecurity sector going forward; a sector that is truly at the epicentre of the digital revolution we are living through right now, and a sector that will be critical to ensuring that our digital future is also a safe future.
