Too few specialists

Development of information technology

Development of information technology is readily available today more than ever. We are constantly exposed to attempts aimed to extort, steal or copy sensitive data from our systems.

Our dependence on information technology is inevitable but not secure. The data we place on the Internet is largely beyond our control.

It is estimated that the costs of remedying the effects of cybercrime in 2021 will amount to $ 6 trillion.

Companies' expenditures on implementing security strategies are constantly growing and this year will reach over $ 40 billion.

The question arises - where will this money go or who will earn it?
