2016 Outlook of the Global Security Industry

2016 Outlook of the Global Security Industry

Being aware of future cyber threats and trends at the national or commercial level is vital in ensuring that institutions are able to protect themselves and the people they serve. Although cyber security is increasingly being discussed by a number of end users, adoption of new systems remains slow and only represents one facet of the continued evolution of the security market. Advancements in communications, screening, and analytics technology will play a pivotal role in allowing users to better respond and react to potential security threats. Frost & Sullivan’s 2016 Security Outlook examines the key security issues of 2015 and analyses the biggest market and procurement trends to look for in 2016 across all major infrastructure verticals.
