Cyber Security stocks are soaring doubling gains for their investors, making me wonder the cause behind this recent internet security stock’s spikes consistently smashing peaks. On the news I heard concerns about ‘’killer robots’’ being deployed in future battle fields – Though the more apparent reason was “Ransomware attacks” targeting “internet infrastructure”, and the evidence is pointing to “Iran”.(*1). Starting in 2017 when it had “spread” a virus “across the globe…and… infected 300,000 computers in more than 150 countries”(*2). Said to be small compared with the expected magnitude, the current threat is posing, considered likely to affect most personal and corporate communication networks and the re-routing of information and meta-data to unauthorised destinations. The threat is such that several Tech communities are issuing “warnings…over the attacks”. At this point, I ask myself what should I do, is it time to invest in Cyber Security for my PC, or, Cyber Security stocks? And this, I have considered, that the former is out-dated the moment it is uploaded, the latter, can easily be toppled just as quickly it soars..
