Federal Information Security Market, 2010-2015 (Nov 2010)
INPUT's Federal Information Security Market, 2010-2015 report identifies and analyzes trends, drivers and challenges that will shape the size and direction of the federal information security market place over the next five years.
Increased reliance on the internet, networked systems, and connectivity creates opportunities for cyber attackers to disrupt government operations, as well as U.S. critical infrastructure. Driven by a 445% increase in cyber threats since 2006 securing federal government and critical U.S. information systems and data against cyber attack is now more important than ever. However, while agencies continue to make incremental progress toward secure infrastructures, lack of leadership, ambiguous roles, technical challenges, and workforce shortages inhibit the federal government from developing implementing a cohesive, well-formed national cybersecurity strategy.
Federal Information Security Market, 2010-2015 illustrates that demand for vendor-furnished information security products and services by the U.S. federal government will increase from $8.6 billion in 2010 to $13.3 billion in 2015 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.1%.
This report identifies and analyzes the trends and drivers impacting this market’s growth and identifies and sizes the following six major segments within the federal information security marketplace:
- Security Operations
- Planning, Policy and Program Management
- Identity and Access Management
- Training, Education and Awareness
- Infrastructure Security
- Increasing cyber incidents and threats from progressively sophisticated attackers;
- Sweeping legislative remedies that aim to patch holes in federal approaches;
- Implementation of the U.S. Cyber Coordinator and DOD Cyber Command; and
- Cyber workforce shortages inhibiting progress and driving the need for technology.
This year’s report includes information security market sizing for the Civilian, Defense, and Intelligence communities with a look at the major information security initiatives across the federal government. The report also includes a detailed look at the top spending federal departments, the major information security initiatives in each, and how these dollars are distributed across the various sub-segments and products/services. Given the high visibility and numerous stress points of information security, this market will remain a growth market over the next five years.
