The past sixteen years have witnessed a staggering growth in the cybersecurity industry. With a global market worth of $3.5 billion in 2004, this figure mushroomed to $120 billion in 2017.

Having a critical flaw in an app or network will leave you vulnerable to a costly, reputation damaging data breach.
