2018 saw a record investment in cybersecurity, according to FinTech Global. Following three large transactions in Hong Kong, 2018 saw the biggest investment in cybersecurity in history, valued at £6.9 billion. Now however, experts are saying that the same investment is not to be expected in 2019, having hit just $3.1 billion in H1. However, this is due to much smaller companies making smaller investments, rather than a downward trend in cybersecurity. 2018’s record was linked to a $500m investment from AI company SenseTime.
