In July 2020, we looked at Cybersecurity as the new frontier for investors. We said that the security of data and information must be paramount for all businesses and individuals. We claimed that there was still a lack of understanding of how easy it is to breach an unsecured environment. We made the case that cybersecurity will be amongst the fastest growing industries, expected to see high investments in online security and further M&A activity. Our thoughts were supported by a panel of experts from Akamai, Clango, Ibex Investors, and IHS Markit colleagues.
2020 was declared the worst year ever for cyberattacks by the US Department of Justice. That same department created a Ransomware Task Force in April 2021 as the number of attacks kept increasing and we can confidently say that 2021 is already worse than the previous year. The European Commission announced plans to build a Joint Cyber Unit, run by a dedicated team of multinational experts that can be rapidly deployed to European countries in case of serious attacks, as the number of major incidents in Europe rose from 432 in 2019 to 756 in 2020.
