Cyber Security has evolved from being an IT problem to a business operations problem. The industry is on the rise, even in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic. As organizations face new cyber threats related to cloud computing and remote work, the demand for effective cyber security solutions is as strong as ever.
The high-profile cyber security breaches keep making headlines. Among the notorious cases: networking software company SolarWinds (NYSE:SWI) and the Colonial Pipeline. These massive business breakdown cases illustrate the need for sophisticated security services — and the real-world consequences if an organization is lax with its IT security practices. Global spending on cybersecurity is thus expected to surpass $150 billion in 2021 and will likely continue to be a high-growth industry. Cybersecurity stocks are a red-hot niche of the tech industry, so knowing how to invest in them can yield some big returns in the decade ahead.
For those looking to get investing exposure to cyber security companies, there is a dozen of effective publicly traded instruments. You may want to take a look at the funds incorporating a broader selection of technology or global trend themes. Or you may consider instruments focusing specifically on cybersecurity, like the ones featured in the selection below.
