Cybersecurity stocks have been a hot sector to invest in the stock market over the past few years.

Subsequently, this has translated into higher demand for next-generation cybersecurity products.

However, most executives are confident in their company’s preparedness for ransomware attacks today. Well, you could say that this is thanks to the services that cybersecurity companies provide today. With that in mind, here is a list of top cybersecurity stocks to watch in the stock market today.
