Yahoo, Equifax, Sony, Uber, Adobe Systems… The list of large U.S. companies that have fallen victim to security breaches in recent years reads like a Forbes top 100 list.

Cybersecurity breaches not only disrupt day-to-day operations, but also damage customer confidence and cause long-lasting negative impacts on their brands and reputation.

As a result, U.S. government spending on cybersecurity continues to ramp up -- to $28 billion in 2016 from $7.5 billion in 2007. With the spotlight on cyber warfare and cyber-attacks from China and Russia, these numbers continue trending upward.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has identified 16 sectors of the country’s critical infrastructure that are so vital, that if their assets or systems or networks were impaired, the effect on our economic security or national public health and safety would be debilitating.

Savvy investors have been using this list for identifying potential investment opportunities in early and middle-market cybersecurity companies that deliver products, services and technologies, which are solutions that will protect, defend and recover from cyber-attacks.
