Federal investment in cybersecurity will reach $13.3 billion by 2015,
driven by a 445% increase in security incidents over the last four years
and the shortage of qualified security professionals, according to a
report released this week.
The size of the investment represents an annual increase of 9.1% over
the next five years, according to the Federal Information Security
Market, 2010-2015 report by Input. The firm based the report on its own
analytics, interviews with federal IT professionals and the government's
own spending forecasts, it said.
Cybersecurity has been a key goal of the Obama administration, which has
launched an agency-wide effort -- led by the Department of Homeland
Security, Department of Defense and National Security Agency -- to
protect federal networks, as well as U.S. critical infrastructure, from
