Cyberattacks are one of the fastest-growing crimes in the United States, and they are increasing in size, sophistication, and cost. Cybercrime is expected to cost $6 trillion annually worldwide by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2015, according to the Official 2019 Annual Cybercrime Report by Cybersecurity Ventures. As a result, businesses and individuals are doing everything they can to secure their networks and protect their data from hackers and other cyberthreats, including spyware, viruses, malware, and ransomware. While large organizations likely have their own cybersecurity teams, smaller companies typically can’t afford in-house experts and opt to outsource their security. Starting a cybersecurity business or getting into cybersecurity as an independent consultant has numerous professional benefits. As the owner of a cybersecurity business, you or your employees will be developing software to help protect your clients against the ever-changing list of cyberthreats that can wreak havoc on their networks and potentially destroy their companies.
