Cybersecurity: An Integral Industry in 2016 and Beyond
Amid a recent string of cyberattacks against corporations, political parties, state agencies, and other organizations, many have begun to recognize the impending threat of hacking and electronic siege. Any activity online or over the Internet with a computer, smartphone, or other device is at risk of being hacked. This can result in the exposure of potentially very sensitive information.

Criminal hackers work in a very clear and deliberate manner targeting a variety of important figures and institutions. In fact, a recent Star Tribune article suggests that St. Jude Medical Inc., based in Minnesota, may have even been the victim of cybercrime. Financial statements reveal that despite revenue growth, profits shrunk slightly indicating possible vulnerabilities in their computer systems and implantable devices. In addition, Dyn, Inc., a prominent Internet performance company, was also hit by a cyberattack recently putting theirs and their clients’ security in jeopardy. Some of their more notable clients include Twitter, Visa, and Netflix.

With only a matter of days until a major presidential election in the United States, cybersecurity has become a major concern and a real threat to American democracy. Russian hackers have been accused of hacking into the Democratic National Committee as well as the state voter registrations systems in Arizona and Illinois. The FBI even issued a nationwide warning of potential cybercrime urging states to take extra precautions during the election. As a result, many agencies all over the country are stepping up their voting technology and electronic security systems.

Cybersecurity has become a top priority for many government agencies that are hoping to safeguard the election, voting, and other functions of government. It is, of course, an integral industry to protect important information and provide secure Internet connectivity, but it is also a booming business. In fact, in September of 2016, the Technology Acquisition Center (TAC) awarded a nearly ten million dollar contract to Alvarez & Associates, LLC to provide continuous diagnostics and mitigation (CDM) implementation hardware and software.

As the issue grows and cyberattacks become more and more commonplace, the amount of bids and RFPs in the government marketplace related to network security applications and software has ballooned. Information technology companies and other firms that provide firewall and other antivirus software as well as related risk management, training, maintenance, and support services must look no further than FindRFP to find opportunities of interest.
