EXCEPTIONAL FEDERAL MARKET UNDERSTANDING
CYBERSECURITY FOUNDERS AND LEADERS
The density of activity in the Greater Washington’s cybersecurity industry places the region squarely as one of the dominant cybersecurity clusters in the world. The proximity to the federal government seeds cybersecurity businesses with an unprecedented amount of non-dilutive investment dollars. In 2020 alone, the federal government spent over $18B utilizing other transaction authority (OTA) agreements to facilitate the speed of innovation.
This single-channel alone works hand-in-hand with Innovation Cells and federal stakeholders to streamline cyber innovation, collaboration, and prototyping for the federal customer.
A large percentage of Cybersecurity business formation comes from within the Washington D.C Metropolitan region. According to a recent report published by American University, 87% of these pure-play cybersecurity businesses are founded by people who were already residents of the Greater Washington region. If you’re not in the know, then it is impossible for you to penetrate the federal market. Our highly decorated team of cybersecurity and startup experts will help you position your company for a win in the federal space. Please contact us today to find out how we can position your company to gain the needed rocket fuel to help you launch and land your company successfully.
Department of Defense
The growing advancements in information technology, upgrading of existing weapons with intelligence, surveillance, and increasing volume of classified data gathered from various systems have demanded the use of reliable and enhanced cyber security solutions for the defense industry. With the increasing dependency of military organizations on the internet network, the frequency and sophistication of cyberattacks are on the rise. To counter all these vulnerabilities, there is a major focus on adopting cybersecurity solutions in the defense sector.
Attacks on the Department of Defense have increased at an exponential basis. Defense infrastructure is fast becoming a target of choice among both individual and state-sponsored cyber-attackers, who now acknowledge the value of disrupting security systems that were previously considered impenetrable. Our deep and breadth of knowledge related to the past and existing systems will enable your organization to penetrate the DoD at the right place and right time. Our team has deep bench strength in making sure your message and capability demonstration is heard and acted on each and every time.
Federal civilian agencies made cybersecurity a top priority for FY21. A White House overview of the FY21 cybersecurity budget aligned the 5 categories of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover) with a breakdown of agency spending, and showed that agencies will spend the most ($2.7B) on “Protect” alone. President Biden’s FY2022 budget document proposes a 14 percent increase from the estimated cybersecurity funding level for last year, to a total of $9.8 billion in federal civilian cybersecurity funding. The White House also noted that budget priorities include funding for the IT and cybersecurity workforce; the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Program; Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure (CVD); and data methodology for assessing cyber threats and the Federal cyber posture. Our team has the inside track on all things cybersecurity-related within the Federal Civilian markets and we would like to discuss your needs to find out how we can position your technology for this new wave of funds.
As military and civilian capabilities increasingly rely on space-based assets the potential effects of a cyberattack against them is imminent and protection and resiliency are on the needed rise. Cyber and space have a unique interdependence, as evinced by cyber being at the heart of the mission of the US Space Force and the upcoming UK Space Command. Space-based assets are critical to the modern military's capability and form part of the critical national infrastructure of a modern economy.
Our team's deep experience in terrestrial-based systems and cybersecurity focuses on protecting these systems to ensure we have reliable and quality space services. The new space domain is the fastest growing market in the federal government and CAP is positioned to help you succeed.
Critical infrastructure systems are powered by computer systems known as ICS that require trained cybersecurity professionals to protect large networks. The critical infrastructure protection market(CIP) market size is forecasted to grow from 133B in 2021 to 157B billion by 2026, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 3.3% from 2021 to 2026.
The major factors fueling the Critical infrastructure protection market include increasing stringent government regulations to increase the adoption of CIP solutions, rising security breaches and attacks pose a threat to physical systems and growing need to secure OT networks to boost the growth of critical infrastructure protection market across the globe during the forecast period. Moreover, enhancing next-generation technologies and availability of wireless broadband in rural areas would provide lucrative opportunities for Critical infrastructure protection market vendors. Our broad expertise in critical infrastructure will help position your companies to capitalize on this expanding market demand.
According to a 2021 Boston Consulting Group (BCG) report, financial services firms are 300 times more likely to be targeted by a cyber-attack and these attacks can be costly. The banking sector risks losing an estimated US$347 billion in value creation opportunities to cybercrime over the next five years. In light of this heightened threat landscape, and coupled with the increase in digital ecosystems, finance organizations need to have a comprehensive suite of technologies and more importantly a trained staff that can outwit and outsmart their digital adversaries.
In 2020 there was an 118% increase in destructive attacks on financial institutions as geopolitical tension plays out in cyberspace. Russia, China and the U.S. underground posed the greatest concern to financial institutions. Typically, cybercriminals in the financial sector will only leverage destructive attacks as an escalation to burn the evidence as part of a counter incident response. These attacks and many more are escalating the need for new cyber innovation to threat off the adversary.
Second only to healthcare in the hierarchy of most cybersecurity attacks, the financial industry is harangued on all sides by cybercriminals. The fuel this industry runs on is sensitive data, including valuable PII. The financial markets are ripe for innovation that will transcend the current conditions and provide a more secure method of providing financial transactions securely and CAP is positioned to help your organization.
