Cybersecurity Ventures featured in The Cybersecurity Cast

The 2017 Cybercrime Podcast: State of the Industry

Steve Morgan

Menlo Park, Calif. – Dec. 1, 2017

Cybersecurity Ventures produces videos, reports, and blogs — but never a podcast. But thanks to Herjavec Group — a leading global information security advisory firm and Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) with offices across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom — we’re in one now.

The Cybersecurity Cast, produced by Herjavec Group, features discussions on the latest news, trends, vulnerabilities, and exploits in the cybersecurity space. Topics include healthcare, ransomware, identity and access management, and more.

In the most recent episode of The Cybersecurity Cast, I was interviewed on our Official 2017 Annual Cybercrime Report, which is also sponsored by Herjavec Group.

In the podcast, we discuss the talent shortage in the industry, what businesses can do to secure their data, the attacks cyber criminals are using to target businesses, and even how artificial intelligence can impact the cybersecurity industry.

On another note, Cybersecurity Ventures will be live at three top shelf events in 2018. You read our reports and blogs, you watch our videos, you see us in the media… we hope you’ll make it to one of these events and meet us in person.


Cyber Investing Summit

Tues., May 15, 2018. New York City.

Now in its third year, the Cyber Investing Summit is an all-day conference focusing on investing in the cyber security industry, which is predicted to exceed $1 trillion in cumulative spending on products and services over the next five years from 2017 to 2021, according to Cybersecurity Ventures’s quarterly Cybersecurity Market Report.

Panels will explore the financial opportunities, trends, challenges, and investment strategies available in the high growth cyber security sector. Speakers include leading cyber professionals, technology analysts, venture capitalists, fund managers, investment advisors, government experts, and more.

Attendees will have the opportunity to network with key influencers in the investment and cyber security industries. A cocktail reception will be held following the presentations.

Cybersecurity Ventures was the the Official Research Partner, opening speaker, and panelist, for the Cyber Investing Summit in 2016 and 2017. We’ll be doing the same in 2018, and hope you can make it.


CyberSmart 2018

May 15-16, 2018. Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada

There is not a day that goes by that cybersecurity is not in the news. As a result, Cybersecurity is one of the most important issues for Canada’s business, government and society as a whole.

Recent reports from Cybersecurity Ventures indicate that our global shortage of cybersecurity professionals will grow from 1.5 million by 2019 to 3.5 million by 2021. Collaborating and moving the agenda for a pan-Canadian skills and workforce development strategy has never been more important.

CyberSmart 2018 will build on the themes, feedback and next steps that emerged from our Summit in 2017. For more information, check out our case study, Summit Case Study.

Steve Morgan, founder and Editor-In-Chief at Cybersecurity Ventures will be the keynote speaker at this exciting and unique event.

We look forward to collaborating with you on CyberSmart 2018.



August, 2018. Park City, Utah

Global cybersecurity spending is predicted to exceed $1 trillion cumulatively over the next five years. Cybersecurity solution providers — MSSPs, MSPs, VARs, etc. — are a critical piece of this puzzle, and yet, until now, there has been no venue in the industry that served this channel.

At the heart of a good strategic partnership is a relationship that is based on understanding, trust, and mutual benefit. CyberTechnologyXchange creates those partnerships.

In the cybersecurity world, building relationships has become continually more challenging. New and changing players and technologies create noise that makes it difficult to discern the best partners.

Traditional channels for vetting partners leave cybersecurity solution providers — MSSPs, MSPs, systems integrators, VARs, consultants and other service provider executives — without a clear strategy.

To make matters worse, industry events have become largely transactional and executives are left to make decisions based on the recommendations of a sales team, not peers who can help formulate an appropriate security and partner strategy.

Cybersecurity Ventures is the Official Research Partner for the CyberTechnologyXchange event.
