    Vera Krückel, Trends Analyst; Kenneth Robertson, Active Ownership Specialist
    The incidence and severity of cyberattacks has accelerated over the last couple of years. In response, spending on cybersecurity has been
    stepped up by governments, private enterprises and individuals alike. With the advent of tighter data privacy regulation, a rapidly expanding attack surface and a growing army of resourceful hackers, spending is likely to shift into an even higher gear.

    Investors can profit from this dynamic growth market by employing a strategy consisting of a core of established players with durable
    competitive advantages, supplemented with a basket of young challengers who are the first in employing the latest technologies.
