Global GCC Cyber Security Market Focus 2016-2022

New Technological Advancements Like Big Data and Internet of Things

DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwired - March 22, 2016) - Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "GCC Cyber Security Market - Estimation & Forecast, 2016-2022" report to their offering.

The GCC Cyber Security market is estimated to grow over $10.41 billion by the end of 2022.

Currently, Cyber Security solutions are acquiring a major share of the market because of an increase in the internet users in the GCC region with current estimation being approximately 40 million. Also, 45% of the social networking users in the U.A.E witnessed cyber-crimes in 2015.

The GCC region acquires a significant share of the world's energy resources and with an increased usage of personal internet and smart devices for banking applications over the past few years, the region has become more exposed to phishing and DDOS attacks. Globally, the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E) is placed at the fifteenth position as a victim of cyber-attacks due to the high density of established commercial and government organizations in the country.

Increased interconnectivity, digitization, and use of social media within the organizations have made the GCC appear more pregnable to cyber-crimes. In 2012, Saudi Aramco, the world's largest oil company, was hit by a virus attack, which caused large scale damage of about $15 million and loss of critical data. In 2015, around 50% of the organizations faced Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks.

Cyber space is continually expanding with new and innovative developments like Internet of Things' and Big Data', which will add to more levels of complexities and security challenges with regard to the various networks and systems. Therefore, cyber security will prove to be an important element of any organization and will attempt to provide many opportunities to a number of vendors to foster cyber security solutions in the GCC region.
