Threats created by disinformation campaigns have created cyber insecurity. These challenges create opportunities for the next-gen of cybersecurity startups – the cyber defenders.

A global view on cybersecurity deal activity – a record high of $10Bn in funding and 770 deals in 2019 compared to less than half in 2015 with $4.5Bn in funding and a mere 473 deals. VC investments have remained strong and bullish, with most active investors including Lightspeed and Accel.

Now it’s no longer a question of if, but when the next cyberattack will occur.

 

Topics discussed:

  • Understand why the threat of cyberattacks is greater than ever post-COVID
  • Get familiar with basic terms such as Malware, DDoS, Firewall, Phishing, White hat and Black hat
  • Get familiar with the type of attacks occurring right now and how cybersecurity startups are arriving at new solutions to these attacks
