Covered in this report
Computer security, also often referred to as cyber security, is the set of processes and technologies that facilitate business, commerce and consumer digital activity in a safe environment. Cyber security, however, is far from simple. The threats to computerised environments are many and various, and are changing on a near-daily basis.
Threats to individual, corporate and government activities online come from three primary sources:
- Criminal behaviour: attempts at committing fraud for (usually) financial gain
- Espionage: gathering corporate or government information illegally to subvert competitive advantage or national security
- Hacking: Disrupting corporate or government activities by denial of service, defacing online content and generally damaging online reputation
Key points included

Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Terry Leggett, a leading analyst in the B2B sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
The UK computer security market is now valued at more than £5 billion. As more and more businesses, public services and consumers are becoming dependent on their technology platforms, digital activity is growing exponentially, which, in turn, is attractive to miscreants. This ranges from issues of national security to personal security, with the computer security sector constantly playing catch-up to increasingly sophisticated attacks that can have access to both artificial intelligence and machine learning.
