Cybercrime is not confined to specific industries, geographies or economic classes. The rise of cybercrime into one of today’s greatest global threats is evident by the fact that ransomware alone is now a billion-dollar industry, IoT attacks were up by 600% in 2017 and the global cost of online crime is expected to reach $6 trillion by 2021.* The growing cost and magnitude of attacks associated with cybercrimes has created a hiring boom in the cybersecurity industry, which is predicted to have 3.5 million unfilled jobs by 2021.**
