Here are my top AI growth stock ideas that ride the cybersecurity and digital transformation megatrends.

If you are new to this video series, it covers the top 12 artificial intelligence stocks focused on growth and disruptive innovation. I have done my best to find the highest-growth companies in a variety of sectors with disruptive growth trends. Last time, I shared three stock ideas covering the following megatrends: fintech, healthcare, and space exploration. Today, I am covering my top AI stocks for cybersecurity and digital transformation. 

In the video below, I break down machine learning (ML) and discuss three types: 

  1. Supervised learning 
  2. Unsupervised learning 
  3. Reinforcement learning 

After the ML background, I provide analysis on my favorite AI stock ideas focused on cybersecurity and digital transformation (stocks eight and nine in the series):

Crowdstrike (CRWD -0.06%) is the leader in endpoint security. Crowdstrike's Falcon platform stops breaches through both prevention and response, a process known as endpoint detection and response (EDR). It uses agent-based sensors that can be installed on Mac, Linux, and Windows platforms. Crowdstrike relies on a cloud-hosted SaaS platform that manages data and prevents, detects, and responds to threats. Both malware and non-malware attacks are covered via Crowdstrike's cloud-delivered technologies in a lightweight solution. 

Cyberattacks continue to be a major threat, and the total addressable market for cybersecurity is enormous. Crowdstrike leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning and has been a monster since its IPO in 2019, growing into a $60 billion market cap company. 

DocuSign (DOCU -3.50%) offers more than most people realize. Its business consists of four primary pillars -- manage, prepare, sign, and act -- which collectively are called the DocuSign Agreement Cloud. The company continues to expand offerings, and its recent earnings results prove it. DocuSign leverages AI for contract and risk analysis. I break it down in the video below.

I also include several bonus stock picks to explore, such as Darktrace (DRKT.F 7.76%). You won't want to miss this series. Please watch the video below and subscribe to make sure you don't miss the upcoming videos.
