Our Company


Cybersecurity Ventures is the world’s leading researcher and publisher covering the global cyber economy.

Our firm delivers cybersecurity market data, insights, and ground-breaking predictions to a global audience of CIOs and IT executives, CSOs and CISOs, information security practitioners, cybersecurity company founders and CEOs, venture capitalists, corporate investors, business and finance executives, HR professionals, and government cyber defense leaders.

We publish annual and quarterly reports covering global cybercrime, cyberwarfare, hacks and data breaches, cybersecurity market forecasts and spending predictions, publicly traded cybersecurity companies and stock performance, M&A and VC funding activity, cyber defense employment, and more. Our lists feature cybersecurity events, training firms, masters degree programs at universities, associations, and other useful data for the cyber community.

The cyber economy is framed by two of our predictions that appear in the media nearly every day — cybercrime damages will cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2015… and global spending on cybersecurity products and services will exceed $1 trillion cumulatively over the next 5 years from 2017 to 2021.

Cybersecurity Ventures compiles and publishes the widely popular Cybersecurity 500 list of the world’s hottest and most innovative cybersecurity companies. Updated quarterly, the list is now in it’s 10th edition for Q1 2017 and relied upon by cybersecurity decision makers, recommenders, and evaluators.

Our business model is simple. All of our content is free. We do our own ground-up research and writing (and some periodic contributions) — plus we vet, synthesize and repurpose research from credible sources (analysts, researchers, vendors, industry experts, media publishers) — and there’s no ‘pay-to-play’ on our lists or ‘advertorial’ in our reports. Organizations pay us to advertise on our site and media, and to sponsor our research. Sponsors must be subject matter experts in the areas they are sponsoring.

We’re routinely featured, quoted, and cited by the top business, financial, and technology media including The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Huffington Post, CIO, CSO, Information Week / Dark Reading, Infosecurity Magazine, SC Magazine, Computerworld, CRN, ITBusinessEdge, Inc. Magazine, Fast Company, Forbes, Fortune, Mashable, Business Insider, POLITICO, ZDNet, TechRepublic, TechCrunch, TheStreet, CNBC, Investor’s Business Daily, NASDAQ and many others.

Cybersecurity Ventures is the Official Research Partner for the annual Cyber Investing Summit, held on Wall Street at the New York Stock Exchange.

Founded in 1999, our firm has offices in Menlo Park, Calif. and Long Island, N.Y.
