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%.
