More than 50 thousand of the world’s top computer security professionals will be in San Francisco this week for the RSA Conference. While they talk, the hole in the cybersecurity world is getting bigger every year and is on track to swallow $6 trillion in annual damages by 2021 — a doubling from $3 trillion in 2015, says Cybersecurity Ventures.
The hole is getting bigger even though we are filling it with money — more than $1 trillion will be spent on prevention this year.
We have new cyber security startups launching with new technologies all the time. But it seems to make little difference in slowing the problem. When can you relax knowing you’ve done enough? Even if you bought everything at this year’s RSA show and used the advice of every expert, you would still be vulnerable.
