Sausalito, California – December 29, 2023

Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that the global costs of cybercrime damages will increase by 15% per year over the next two years, reaching $10.5 trillion per year in 2025, up from $3 trillion in 2015.

To combat cybercrime, we estimate that the world is halfway to cumulatively spending approximately $1.75 trillion on cybersecurity products and services for the 5-year period from 2021 to 2025.

Venture capital firms have pumped billions of dollars into cybersecurity startups and emerging players each year over the past five years.

That pretty much sums up the hot cybersecurity market. Even though total venture capital investments in the sector declined in 2023 (compared to 2022, a record year), that could mean less competition for publicly traded companies dedicated to protecting governments, businesses and consumers against cybercriminals.

So, if you’re looking to invest in cybersecurity, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced stock picker, the question is where to put your money?


ETFs are collections of assets, often stocks, bonds, or a mix of both.”, according to BankRate.com. “A single ETF can hold dozens, sometimes hundreds, of stocks. So, by owning a single share of the ETF, investors can hold an indirect stake in all the shares (or other assets) held by the fund. This is a great (and often inexpensive) way to purchase a collection of stocks. (learn more about ETFs)
