According to McKinsey (1), the worldwide number of IoT-connected devices is projected to increase to 43 billion by 2023, an almost threefold increase from 2018.
Beyond the number, digital networks and assets are more valuable and prolific than ever.
Together with all the benefits that this trend is bringing on, threats to digital ecosystems are multiplying.
This is why cybersecurity is becoming a strategic business issue with enormous financial, reputational, and regulatory implications for large companies.
Indeed, it’s not surprising that there are 21,729 startups who either compete in or rely on cybersecurity technologies and solutions as a core part of their business models today, 1,653 of which have received seed funding in the last twelve months (3).
At Mind the Bridge, we advise our corporate partners to find the most innovative solutions around the world that can help them avoid the biggest cybersecurity threats, from network and data security to IT governance, digital assets, and policy compliance.
