IT Security Consulting
The increasing use of mobile devices and cloud servers to store sensitive data and the subsequent rise in technologically sophisticated cyber criminals threatening to steal that data have accelerated growth in the IT Security Consulting industry. Benefiting from the increasing adoption of e-commerce, social networking and cloud computing, industry revenue is expected to grow over the five years to 2018. IT security consultants have benefited from these trends as they increase the amount of data stored in cloud servers that require protection. Furthermore, the rise of software as a service (SaaS), a model of software deployment in which a provider licenses an application to customers for use as a service on demand, has helped raise the percentage of services conducted online. As these positive trends are expected to continue moving forward, industry revenue is expected to grow over the five years to 2023.
