Cybersecurity: An Ethical Imperative

Ballistic Ventures was formed out of a profound sense of urgency and moral responsibility to address the growing threats to society’s digital infrastructure.

This mission is personal. For over 35 years, our work in cybersecurity has granted us exclusive insight into the evolution of the cyber threat landscape. We’ve tracked its progression from the benign hacking of the 80s to the ruthless and insidious attacks on individuals and nations alike, which disrupt millions of lives daily.

We’re confident that security, privacy, and trust are fundamental to future generations and free economies. As technological innovation continues at a blistering pace — and in fact accelerates — every aspect of our physical lives will soon be accessible online. Without fail, nefarious acts will follow.

The speed, scope, and scale of potential damage is incalculable. Businesses, industries, governments, and individuals cannot thrive, or even survive, in a digital society that fails to provide protection and privacy for digital assets, and trust across ecosystems.

We question whether risk will outpace benefit, and yet despite the answer, we know there’s no turning back. Adaptation is the only reasonable response.

Cybersecurity isn’t a problem to be solved with technology alone — it is an ongoing battle that will persist as long as malicious intentions exist.

We believe that the most important action we can take today is to empower the world’s greatest cybersecurity entrepreneurs with our collective experience, network, and passion. Together, we can turn the tide at this crucial inflection point to ensure a safe, prosperous future for all generations to come.

So yes — this is personal.
