Cyber Security in Numbers 28.11.14

This week, Proof Communication attended the Govnet Cyber Security Summit in Westminster, to find out the latest news and views from the cyber security industry.

In his talk MP Francis Maude reflected back to 2011 when the first UK Cyber Security Strategy was published. It had an investment of £860 million to support it. The fact that the government was prepared to invest such a significant sum of money to strengthen cyber security efforts shows how seriously the issue was taken 3 years ago. Throughout the conference it interesting to hear stats and facts about how the UK has developed its Cyber Security capabilities since then.

So where is the cyber security industry at now and what is in-store for the future? Take a look at our ‘Cyber Security in Numbers’ infographic for a snapshot:
