Ignore the Misleading Cybersecurity Legislation Hype From the Media and Analysts
Investors need to be very clear not to fall for any cybersecurity legislation hype. It remains all about information sharing regulations, NOT about anything that is going to give any company some kind of unique advantage or new sales opportunity. And any legislation will be almost guaranteed to fail to pass anyway, just as it did the end of last year.
So, in summary, investors need to ignore any media or analysts who try to paint cybersecurity legislation as something that will have any real meaningful impact to companies in the software security space. Or who try to give the impression somehow it translates to new market or product opportunities or revenue. Simply false, entirely. Any doubts, do some research and read the recent executive legislation for yourself. It will become apparent very quickly what is actually being proposed.
