This week, we reported our findings on the hottest up-and-coming and mature industries for 2022. So far, cybersecurity investments are on track to be a record-setting year for cybersecurity-related companies. Google announced earlier in the week a $5.4BN acquisition of cyber firm Mandiant. That announcement comes after a flush month of deals in February, hitting $3.2BN in the shortest month of the year. For more on this topic, check out this Harvard Business Review article and search recent fundings for cybersecurity startups on our platform.

Here’s the recap of the Daily Stack’s topics this week:
