The cybersecurity market is one of the fastest-growing segments of the technology sector. Themes such as the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, and artificial intelligence are sparking innovation within the sector. According to a report by Mordor Intelligence, a market research firm, the cybersecurity market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of close to 15% between 2021 and 2026, jumping from $156 billion in value to more than $352 billion, with smart cities expected to be the focus of new investments into the area.

The total spending on cybersecurity ventures in the past four years has been somewhere close to $1 trillion. A large part of this has been Fortune 500 companies, with giants like JPMorgan, Bank of America, and Microsoft spending hundreds of millions to protect their services every year. Even energy firms and pipelines operators, the subject of recent hacking attempts, are increasing spending on the sector. Previously, it is estimated that these firms spent only 0.2% of their budgets on cybersecurity.

Cyber insurance products are also becoming popular, although 68% of businesses in the US still do not have coverage against cyber liability or data-breach. However, a survey by The Wall Street Journal claims that 25 of the most populous cities in the US are now looking into possible spending in the area. New methods of identity verification, apart from the traditional username and password, are also making their way into normal usage as security professionals recommend the use of biometric and other forms of digital identification.

Jaya Baloo, the Chief Information Security Officer at Avast, a cybersecurity provider, said during an interview with the World Economic Forum that the biggest challenge for government in relation to web threats was the exclusion of the cost of cyber security in existing information technology infrastructure. Cryptography and quantum computing were also identified as growth areas in the industry by Baloo, who said that the standard practice for any business or government should be spending at least 10% on cybersecurity in the digital economy.

Cybersecurity Ventures, a cyber-focused magazine, has predicted in a report that damage from cyber attacks in 2021 will likely reach $6 trillion and climb to $10 trillion by 2025 if effective safeguards are not adopted. In light of these threats, many governments and businesses are increasing investment in cybersecurity. Some of the top cybersecurity stocks to buy now according to hedge funds include Palantir Technologies Inc. (NYSE:PLTR), NortonLifeLock Inc. (NASDAQ:NLOK), Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ:CHKP), Cloudflare, Inc. (NYSE:NET), CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:CRWD), and Okta, Inc. (NASDAQ:OKTA), among others discussed in detail below.
