US DoD Cybersecurity Market, Forecast to 2023

US DoD Cybersecurity Market, Forecast to 2023

This research service provides an overview of the US Department of Defense (DoD) Cybersecurity market. It includes categories of spending, such as research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E), procurement, and services. Cybersecurity is defined as program funding and contract activity intended to ensure that IT systems are protected from exploitation by adversaries through a wide variety of technologies, such as assessments, firewalls, and encryption. The research forecasts do not include classified programs and budgets. A substantial amount of the total cybersecurity market information is not accessible to the public. Inherent cybersecurity elements of general information technology (IT) networks and combat systems are not included. Due to the close operational and technological relationship with cybersecurity, information operations (IO), or offensive cyber attack, is also included, when available. IO seeks to gain dominance and exploitation of adversary IT systems.

Program funding is derived from the DoD 2019 budget request and includes designated portions of overseas contingency operations (OCO) funding. Program funding is segmented by RDT&E, Procurement, and O&M. Contract awards are segmented by RDT&E, Procurement, and Services. Contract data is based on the 2017 calendar year. Newly announced prime awards over $7.5 million are included. Program funding and contract values do not always align year to year, due to administrative costs, multiyear contracts, and technology use across segments. Program and contract segmentation, large multiyear contract assessments, and funding forecasts for 2017 and beyond are made at the analyst’s discretion.

Attempts to disrupt and/or steal from US political, economic, and military networks are a constant threat. US defense secrets have been compromised on both government- and industry-owned networks. Ensuring robust cybersecurity and attack information coordination is a high priority for the DoD. US CYBERCOM has been established, and each of the military services have set up cyber commands, created cybersecurity military occupational specialties, and conduct training and operations through several well-funded programs-of-record.

There will be increasing need for firms that can provide state-of-the-art cybersecurity services. The need to maintain network resiliency by assuring people with the most advanced cybersecurity skills are available is a top priority.
