Microsoft commits to spend $20 billion on cybersecurity over five years

-

Microsoft (MSFT) announced on Wednesday that it will invest $20 billion over the next 5 years in cybersecurity, four times its previous investments of $1 billion per year to protect its services.

The tech giant operates some of the world’s most used software, making it a prime target for cyberattacks. After all, cybercriminals and nation states want to hit the largest number of victims possible when they launch their attacks.

In addition to its $20 billion investment, Microsoft announced that it will offer $150 million in technical services to federal, state, and local governments to upgrade their security capabilities. The company says it will also expand its partnerships with community colleges and non-profits for cybersecurity training programs.
