Federal Information Security Market, 2013-2018

Published: October 31, 2013

Deltek's Federal Information Security Market, FY 2013-2018 examines the trends and drivers shaping the federal information security marketplace and provides a forecast for the next five years.

Growing dependence on complex networked systems, large data stores and mobility means disruption of these technologies puts federal agencies at risk. The size and scope of their infrastructure and data assets make them a top target for cyber-attack from without and within. The value and diversity of these assets drive protective investments at all levels. Further, the risk posture of government systems and data is shaped by advances in cloud computing, information sharing, and mobility that need proactive efforts secure. Within this complex environment agencies seek incremental security gains while the rate of success is hindered by persistent threats, technical challenges, and skilled workforce shortages.

Deltek forecasts the demand for vendor-furnished information security products and services by the U.S. federal government will increase from $8.8 billion in FY 2013 to $11.4 billion in 2018 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.4%.

Key Findings
