Cyberpreneurship is a modern-day term for entrepreneurs who have work in the field of cybersecurity. Due to the rise of online transactions, it became evident that companies use technologies that provide a safe and protected exchange of money and ideas. Cyber entrepreneurs digitize access to products and services by leveraging information technology.
