Cybersecurity

As countries continue to digitize their economies cybersecurity increasingly becomes critical to secure data flows and boost consumer confidence. Organizations are spending more on security because of regulations, shifting buyer mindset, awareness of emerging threats and the evolution to a digital business strategy.i U.S. cybersecurity companies are global leaders in great position to capitalize on the expected global increases in cybersecurity spending. Based on 2016 annual revenue figures, six of the top ten global cybersecurity companies whose core business was cybersecurity were from the United States. 22 of the top 25 cybersecurity companies in 2017 were based in the United States.ii Exporting opportunities for U.S. cybersecurity companies remain concentrated in advanced-ICT markets with large volumes of data flows and digital transactions, as well as highly digitized manufacturing and services sectors. Generally speaking, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region present the largest opportunities for U.S. companies seeking to enter international markets.
