#BigData = #BigSecurity

Online privacy is on the tips of everyone’s tongues these days, and investors are rushing to pour money into cybersecurity startups.

Venture capital firms are expected to funnel $788 million into early-stage cybersecurity startups this year.

That’s a 74% increase from last year’s $452 million, according to PrivCo, a financial data provider on privately-held companies. In 2011, VC firms invested just $160 million in cybersecurity startups.
