‘Powerful cyberattack’ strikes world’s computers, causing mass disruption

The world is still recovering from a previous outbreak of ransomware, called WannaCry or WannaCrypt

A ransomware attack hit computers across the world on Tuesday, taking out servers at Russia’s biggest oil company, disrupting operations at Ukrainian banks, and shutting down computers at multinational shipping and advertising firms.


IT experts identified the virus as “Petrwrap”, a modified version of the Petya ransomware which hit last year and demanded money from victims in exchange for the return of their data.


The fight against cyberattacks has sparked exponential growth in global protection spending, with the cyber security market estimated at $120 billion this year, more than 30 times its size just over a decade ago.

Equifax gets hacked: How to profit from the growing threat of cyberattacks

by Justin Brill

First Trust Nasdaq Cybersecurity Fund (CIBR).

CIBR holds a basket of 33 companies that build and sell cybersecurity tools.

To be included in the fund, businesses need to have a market value of more than $250 million.

This differentiates CIBR from the PureFunds ISE Cyber Security Fund (HACK), which invests in smaller, more volatile, companies.


Because shares had already moved significantly higher last year, Ben recommended readers use a strategy known as “scaling in” to limit their risk. As he explained…

To limit risk further, we’ll “scale in” to this position, buying in halves.

EVERY BUSINESS FACES THIS BIG PROBLEM

Today's chart highlights a major concern for modern businesses...

Regular readers know we are always looking to invest in big secular trends. Today, one of these trends is the security of personal data stored on the Internet. It's much easier to buy your coffee with a smartphone, or to save your credit card on Amazon (AMZN) for your purchases. But sending and saving your information online has consequences...

Last month, we learned that credit-reporting bureau Equifax (EFX) was hacked. The personal information of about 145 million Americans was stolen, including social-security and credit-card numbers.

As attacks like this keep increasing, big businesses will turn to cybersecurity experts for help. Today, we can see this concept at work in shares of the First Trust Nasdaq Cybersecurity Fund (CIBR)...

CIBR holds shares of leading cybersecurity firms like Symantec (SYMC) and Palo Alto Networks (PANW). As you can see in the chart below, the fund has surged higher after the recent data breaches. Shares are up 14% from last year, and they just hit a new all-time high. Expect more businesses to turn to cybersecurity experts as these hacks worsen...

Tech ETF #3 – Cybersecurity

With the data breach at Equifax Inc. (NYSE:EFX), surely hacking and cybersecurity is on everyone’s mind lately.

But investors should also be interested in cybersecurity as a profit-making opportunity; worldwide spending on information security was about $75 billion in 2015, according to advisory group Gartner, and is expected to top $113 billion by 2020.

If you want exposure to the cybersecurity boom but have trouble picking individual stocks, then the First Trust Nasdaq Cybersecurity ETF (NYSEARCA:CIBR) is the way to go.

CIBR is formulated to avoid many of the smaller and riskier plays in the industry. This is clear in the fact that CIBR requires a minimum market cap of $250 million.

And perhaps more importantly, CIBR looks for three-month trailing volume of $1 million with a minimum float of 20%.

There are other cybersecurity funds out there, but CIBR is more selective and will ensure you have established players who can capitalize most on the growth in this industry.

Cramer's Top 4 Cybersecurity Picks

by Jayson Derrick

Here is a list of all of the stocks Cramer likes in the cybersecurity space.

Mimecast Ltd MIME
- provides e-mail related security, which is a growing target for hackers because e-mails are read by humans -- and humans, not computers, are the "weakest links" in terms of security and data breaches.

Cyberark Software Ltd CYBR
- specializes in protecting administrator accounts, which is a prime target for hackers as these accounts can unlock entire digital ecosystems.

Proofpoint Inc PFPT
- offers consumers protection across email, mobile, and social media, making it a "lucrative business."

Cramer's top pick in the space is Palo Alto Networks Inc PANW
, which is an attractive buy after experiencing a "ton of weakness right now."
