A Pure Play for the "World War 3.0" Cyber Arms Race

President Obama and his generals have consistently put cybersecurity at or near the top of U.S. strategic defense priorities.

Ever since, the military and government have had their work cut out for them, fighting relentless, daily waves of computer attacks, in many cases against vital national interests.

The private sector is in the trenches, too, as state actors and individuals press attacks to get trade secrets or customer identity data.

Now, recent high-profile cyberattacks against the Democratic National Committee, most likely by Vladimir Putin's intelligence services, have pushed the issue into "six o'clock news" territory.

But the problem goes so much deeper than the media is reporting. This country is embroiled in nothing less than a full-scale global cyberwar right now. There may not be any casualties (yet), but everything is up for grabs and the stakes are very high.

For instance, the cost of fighting this war is set to eclipse $1 trillion between 2017 and 2021, making the battlefield one of the largest new markets on earth.

I'm going to show you how you can profit from our efforts to win, but first let me peel back the curtain on a huge conflict that's largely hidden from public view...

One Billion Reasons Why This Company Is Good for Another 100% Profit

Delta Air Lines executives and the mainstream media are looking at Aug. 8's catastrophic systems failure as an equipment outage, which would be great if that's all it truly turns out to be.

Only problem is… I don't believe in coincidences.

Today's airlines – like many critical systems we live with daily – depend on complicated, overlapping, and exceptionally large amounts of data so critical that even the smallest snafu has global implications.

That makes them susceptible to, well, everything.

There's no doubt in my mind that two-bit cyber terrorists around the world are watching the situation very carefully – and learning from it. And that means, in turn, that preventing more Delta-like situations is a high priority.

One company I'm tracking stands to make billions by doing something unique.

I think the stock doubles as a result... again...
