CYBER WARFARE AND HOMELAND SECURITY UPDATE

08 Dec 11. Analysis indicates that the cyberwarfare market will reach a value of $15.9bn in 2012, as governments around the world continue to invest in a range of cyberwarfare systems and solutions designed to offer protection against a wide range of cyber threats including protecting information and infrastructure from hostile states, as well as non-state actors both at home and abroad. Spending on cyberwarfare has been ring-fenced from the massive cuts being initiated in the defence sectors of a number of major markets. Despite this, sales may suffer a little, but are likely to remain relatively high, especially whilst the threat to national security posed by a successful cyber attack remains an important point of interest for both the public and private sector. The cyberwarfare market is likely to be driven by increasingly networked systems requiring increasing levels of protection from a continuing, persistent threat. (Source: ASD Network)
