Security Industry Trends – Anticipating the Key Drivers and Developments of the Security Industry

This presentation concludes the interview results of the foresight study carried out in the end of 2013. The identification and selection of sixteen leading security researchers was based on the content and social network analysis of Security Journal publications from 1999 -2012. Interviewees and their co-author relationships covered three quarters of the most active Security Journal researchers, thus reasonably well covering a generic view of security researchers. As a result a group of drivers such as regulation, political will, privatization/outsourcing, technology development, research methods, globalization, personnel/management capabilities, criminal skills, image of the security industry, industry concentration to large multinational companies and liability issues were identified. Furthermore besides key drivers, weak signals and wild cards are also presented and discussed.
