Federal Information Security Market, 2014-2019

Published: October 31, 2014

Deltek's Federal Information Security Market, 2014-2019 examines the trends and drivers shaping the federal information security marketplace and provides a forecast for the next five years.

Evolving threats, the pace of technology evolution and increasing reliance on mobility and information sharing makes effective information security one of the federal government’s most critical capabilities. Internal and external threats to systems are becoming more sophisticated and the need for solutions to assess and mitigate security risks is growing. Agencies’ ability to develop secure IT environments will impact their progress in modernizing systems and investing in emerging technologies like cloud computing, big data and mobility.

Although agency leaders are focused on improving their cybersecurity posture, budget and personnel constraints continue to create capability gaps. To address these gaps, agencies will continue to invest in the processes, tools and personnel required to mount both offensive and defensive security strategies.

Deltek forecasts the demand for vendor-furnished information security products and services by the U.S. federal government will increase from $7.8 billion in FY 2014 to $10.0 billion in 2019 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2%.

Key Findings

  • The rise in cyber-threats presents persistent challenges to agency infrastructure and data, jeopardizing mission activities and citizen security.
  • Increased threats are raising scrutiny and efforts to harden all levels of the information supply chain. Defense and civilian contractors are increasingly under scrutiny.
  • Persistent and diverse threats are driving risk-based approaches and decision-making to determine security controls for diverse data/systems.
  • Initial activities following the launch of the DHS Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program have revealed greater vulnerabilities that will take time and contractor support to address.
