N6A CEO Matt Rizzetta told O’Dwyer’s that cybersecurity services have boomed amid increased demand. Successful cyber-attacks per company each year have risen more than 27 percent, putting more attention on these crises.

“Cybersecurity is one of the fastest growing industries globally and the size of the market is expected to surpass $200 billion by 2022,” Rizzetta told O’Dwyer’s. “Needless to say, the cybersecurity industry is expanding rapidly and we’re seeing these emerging companies needing specialized marketing and PR/communication services.”

New York-based N6A, which was founded in 2010, accounted for more than $4.3 million in 2016, according to O’Dwyer’s rankings of PR firms.
