One Simple Hack Could Earn You 1,500%

There’s been a lot of talk about hacking this week.

America was once again reminded that Russia launched a dangerous cyberattack on our democracy in 2016.

But I’m not here to talk politics.

I’m here to talk profits.

That’s why I want to talk about the cybersecurity industry, and tip you off to a very special stock that could surge 1,500% in the months ahead.

I’ll get to that in a minute, but first, let’s get back to the Russian hacking machine.

Last month, the special counsel appointed to investigate election interference indicted 12 Russian spies, accusing them of hacking into two Democratic Party computer systems.

These Russian spies are part of GRU — Russia’s military intelligence agency. And to achieve their goal, they set up an entire company that employed hundreds of people. It had a budget of $1.25 million per month. It used information (Social Security numbers and birth dates) stolen from U.S. citizens to create fake online personas, like Guccifer 2.0. And it used a virtual private network to disguise its location.

This “cyberarmy” infiltrated computer networks at the DCCC and DNC, where it secretly monitored the activity of dozens of employees. It also planted hundreds of files containing malicious computer code to steal passwords and data.

That is how sophisticated, how complex, and how well-funded these operations are. And there’s dozens more just like it.

China has a cyberarmy, too. It’s called ‘Unit 61398’. Beijing uses it to spy on political rivals (the United States) and steal trade secrets and technology from companies like Apple and Samsung.

In fact, in June, Chinese hackers gained access to U.S. submarine plans after hacking a U.S. Navy contractor’s computer.

But now, here’s the really scary thing: You don’t even have to be a professional to be an effective hacker.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that an amateur hacker stole U.S. military information about combat drones… and they weren’t even trying.

They simply used what Wired magazine called a “dumb security flaw.” Yet they were able to access top-secret documents stored on Air Force computers and then put that information up for sale on the dark web for a couple hundred dollars.

If this person had been targeting this information, or had known what it was they found, they would have charged way more for U.S. military secrets!

When you consider all that, it can’t come as a surprise that cybersecurity stocks are going gangbusters — doubling the return of the overall market.

Indeed, cybersecurity stocks (as tracked by the ETFMG Prime Cyber Security ETF) have returned 30% over the past year — double the return of the S&P 500.

It’s also no coincidence that we’re just a few months shy of the one-year anniversary of the Equifax hack — one of the largest data breaches ever, affecting 145.5 million people.

In fact, corporate entities are even more at risk than governments.

Just look at some of the big names on this list…

All of these breaches have forced corporations and governments to take extreme measures. They’re now pouring billions of dollars into cybersecurity defenses.

Cybersecurity spending will climb 7% to $93 billion this year compared to $86.4 billion in 2017, according to Gartner research. It’s then projected to reach $108 billion by 2020.

And that’s what brought me to this tiny company (It’s trading under $2 per share!) that’s going to reap a huge windfall from this fast-growing market.

It’s what I’m calling a “cyberwarrior” — a firm dedicated to fighting hackers and data breaches.

It’s in such a strong position that it could easily return 1,500% in the months ahead… and that’s just the start.

All you have to do is click here to get all the details.

Don’t be on the wrong side of the next major hack. Make cybercriminals, and cyberwarriors, work for you.

Fight on,
