  • Published On : Nov 21, 2019

Companies are prioritizing significant investments in regulatory compliance efforts to gain immunity from risks that surround security breaches. In line with this, the global cyber security market value surpassed US$ 100 Bn in 2018 and will see stupendous growth at a double digit CAGR during the forecast period (2019 - 2029).

Regulatory standards such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, and ISO 27001 prescribe recommendations for data protection and improvement of enterprise information security management. Businesses are being able to achieve and define specific IT security goals by demonstrating compliances with cyber security process such as vulnerability management to minimize the risk of network attacks. Each major cyber security standard requires a specific change to be integrated with new technology.

Key Takeaways

  • Providers of cyber security solutions are eyeing expansion opportunity in Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) owing to increasing IT infrastructure and rising demand for smart devices.
  • Increasing adoption of cloud-based security solutions for cyber security in small and medium scale enterprises is a major concern to prevent their data from ransomware attacks.
  • Increasing threats such as malware/PoS malware, account hijacking, malicious script injection, DDoS attacks, data breach, phishing, and spear phishing attacks, need efficient cyber security solutions in the connected IoT ecosystem.
  • The banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) industry is expected to generate high demand for cyber security solutions and services during the forecast period.

With the number of connected devices anticipated to reach its tipping point by 2025, the risk of cyber security seems to be aggravating rapidly. Moreover, this is further complemented by brisk expansion of smart/connected homes landscape. While it’s clear that more the number of connected devices, more the risk of cyber security threats; we foresee a spectacular rise in demand for more effective and efficient cyber security measures in the near future.
