The collapse of air traffic and national lockdowns have reduced internal security activities in most countries.

But at the same time, the accelerating shift to remote working has exposed many organizations to cyber-attacks.

The giants of the sector are now positioning themselves in the key areas of security in the digital space, foremost among which are the Cloud and digital identity.

This investment is accompanied by numerous initiatives to overcome the shortage of IT and cybersecurity skills: partnerships with software firms, dedicated training programs, etc.

Digital transformation, connectivity of objects and associated services, exponential growth of data, and flow and storage management make cybersecurity a major challenge. States, companies and organizations, infrastructures (transport, energy, banking, communications…), all are exposed to cyber attacks.

The size of the civil and military Cybersecurity market has increased from $3.5 billion per year in 2004 to $120 billion in 2017. It is growing at an annual rate of 13%, twice as much as the defence equipment budget.

Threats to Homeland security are increasingly varied and decentralized. The proliferation of drones, the increase in air traffic and passenger flows, as urban areas continue to develop and become more complex. Whether it is airspace control, border control or urban control, security solution industries are trying to provide complete solutions.

Most of the world’s major airline hubs now exceed 50 million passengers per year.  Airports require complete access control, video protection and secured information system from the industries. To fight terrorism as well, the Passenger Name Record (PNR) system has also undergone significant development in recent years.
