To Read the Complete Report with TOC Visit: http://www.marketresearchreports.biz/analysis-details/the-global-cybersecurity-market-2013-2023

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?

The global cyber security market is dominated by North America, with the US being the largest defense spender in the world; overall, North America is set to spend US$ 93.6 billion on cyber security during the forecast period. Despite the scheduled budget cuts, Europe represents the second-largest market, with the total cyber security market valued at around US$ 24.7 billion, offering a potentially attractive investment opportunity for suppliers. Asia-Pacific is projected to spend an estimated US$ 23.2 billion on cyber security during the forecast period, followed by the Middle East and Latin America with US$ 22.8 billion and US$ 1.6 billion respectively.

Key Features and Benefits

The report provides detailed analysis of the market for cyber security during 2013-2023, including the factors that influence the reasons countries are investing or cutting defense expenditure. It provides detailed expectations of growth rates and projected total expenditure.

Historically, most of the expenditure in this sector is generated by the private sector, yet government spending has witnessed a robust increase in the recent past; the US’s private and public sector spending is almost the same, pegged at US$ 94 billion over the next 10 years. The UK has also made cyber security a tier one priority by allocating an additional US$ 800 million for various cyber security initiatives in its 2010 strategic defense and security review (SDSR); the government is expected to spend close to US$ 6 billion on cyber security over the next 10 years. Similarly countries in the Middle East, Asia Pacific and Latin America are also expected to ramp up spending on cyber security during the forecast period.

Key Market Issues

It is very important for cyber security providers to identify the source of malware so that similar patterns can be tracked and observed for flaws, and a proper response to the attack can be delivered without causing undue inconvenience to the entire cyberspace community. This challenge stems from the fact that the cyber security institutional eco-system which consists of a broad set of international, national, and private organizations has unclear and overlapping boundaries.

Cyber weapons are in their infancy and are expected to rapidly evolve over the next decade. Therefore, nations are currently dedicating increasing resources at the executive policy level as well as at the private sector level, in order to deal with complex cyber threats. These resources have been well utilized as is evident from the innovations in cyber defense technologies, but as these mechanisms become commercially available and their mode of operation is scrutinized, attackers will develop more advanced cyber weapon technologies to deal with advanced defenses.

Key Highlights

At the cyber-security world summit held in 2010, security experts raised credible issues such as crashing power grids, stalled air control towers, hospital infrastructure being rendered useless, and national defenses being susceptible to outside attack. New technologies such as cloud computing, social networking, and the proliferation of mobile devices have also resulted in an increase of cyber attacks. The governments of the UK, the US, France, Belgium, Germany, and India have stated that their systems and networks were infiltrated by criminal networks. Such incidents are expected to augment a sustainable demand for cyber security over the forecast period

The militaries of most countries have always enjoyed a certain degree of autonomy, but they are not immune from the economic uncertainties that face governments. With budget cuts being implemented, many countries are looking to channel their resources towards certain areas of military spending. For example the US is looking to phase out tanks and other major weapons programs and divert its spending towards IT and cyber security programs.

Anthony P. Minite, president and CEO


City of Industry, CA (PRWEB) July 25, 2012

The management team of Bentley Prince Street is pleased to announce that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the company from its parent, Interface, Inc., and return the distinguished commercial carpet manufacturer to a privately-owned entity. The transaction is expected to close in the coming few weeks. Management, making the purchase together with Dominus Capital, a private equity investment firm, plans to capitalize on the company’s over-thirty-year history of designing award-winning commercial carpet products to expand its broadloom, carpet tile and area rug businesses worldwide. In the coming year, Bentley Prince Street will be increasing its efforts to meet industry demand for innovation and performance, while reinforcing its legacy of design excellence.    

“This upcoming chapter in our company’s history is exciting for our associates and our industry because we are setting big goals for growth that will provide a huge burst of energy for all of us,” said President and CEO Anthony Minite. “Bentley Prince Street has long been celebrated for design excellence and an entrepreneurial spirit, and that spirit is what motivates us to be better and stronger than our competitors.”

Bentley Prince Street will continue to manufacture quality products, designed with its customers’ needs in mind, in the most responsible way. Partnering with Dominus Capital will afford Bentley Prince Street the ability to acquire the highest quality technology, which will allow the company to exceed the industry’s expectations in the areas of design and innovation. In addition, management plans to expand the company’s carpet tile and area rug programs in the U.S. and abroad.

Ashish Rughwani, Partner at Dominus Capital, added, “We are excited to partner with Anthony and the rest of the management team in this investment.

ATMOS Global Launches ATMOS-5D+ First-of-its-Kind ‘Sixth Sense’ Dust Impact Forecasting Platform for Mine Haul Road Dust Management and Dust Control

ATMOS Global Launches ATMOS-5D+ First-of-its-Kind ‘Sixth Sense’ Dust Impact Forecasting Platform for Mine Haul Road Dust Management and Dust Control











Dr Orestis Valianatos – Global President and Chief Executive Officer – ATMOS Global™


Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) July 03, 2012

ATMOS Global ™ (ATMOS Australia Pty Ltd – Elite Atmospheric Air Quality Modelling & Forecasting and Climate Change Research Consultants™) launches ATMOS-5D+ ™ world’s first Integrated 5D Global and Site Specific Dust Impact Forecasting and Management Platform for Mine Haul Road Dust Control ™ – a major breakthrough in environmental dust control and dust management in mining.

Growing attention to general environmental issues has stimulated the search for new approaches to dust management. In particular, the challenges associated with controlling haul road fugitive dust emissions have led regulatory agencies to examine these emissions in greater detail.

Dr Orestis Valianatos, the Global President and Chief Executive Officer of ATMOS Global, said that “responding to the scientific consensus that mine haul road dust emissions are considered to have a major contribution to the overall dust emissions from surface mining sites, ATMOS-5D+ ™ ‘sows seeds of change’ as a revolutionary concept that facilitates the enhanced understanding and control of these emissions. ATMOS-5D+ ™ marks the emergence of a new ‘sixth sense’ Dust Management 5.0 era by bridging the gap between the digital and physical world.”

“The robust, timely and comprehensive dust impact forecasting information generated daily for mining companies world-wide through ATMOS Global’s Centre for Global and Site Specific Dust Impact Forecasting, Management and Control™ using our advanced multi-component dust control and management systems, ATMOS-5D+ ™ and DustAlert+ ™ (world’s first Artificial Intelligence Multi-factor Multi-criteria Dust Impact Early Warning System ™), transforms the way mining companies deal with dust emissions associated with mine haul roads and helps them adapt to the global future of the regulatory environment in which they operate, as it changes,” he said.

ATMOS-5D+ ™ is the new dedicated version (for mine haul road dust control) of ATMOS Global’s innovative ATMOS-5D ™ – the first-of-its-kind risk-based dust management method used for a mining project nominated as a finalist (jointly with ATMOS Australia) for one of the most prestigious awards for environmental excellence in Australia. ATMOS-5D+ ™ and DustAlert+ ™ are complex multi-component systems that combine state-of-the-art meteorological and air quality forecasting concepts and apply mathematical and physical sciences proficiency to the task of delivering more than 25,000 highly specialized dust impact forecasts every year.

ATMOS-5D+ ™ is a multi-agent autonomous ground breaking Dust Management 5.0 technology that coordinates and supports the mission critical activities of distributed dust control agents by adapting to user expectations to help identify potential dust management problems and changes in the environment to solve practical dust management problems in a more effective way.

ATMOS-5D+ ™ sets guidelines for appropriate courses of fact-based dust management action leading to safer working conditions, reduced environmental consequences and higher productivity by offering mine operators an opportunity to anticipate, identify and decide before adverse dust impacts are predicted to happen (a few days in advance) what the response to these potential dust impacts will be.

ATMOS-5D+ ™ is a unique dust control and management platform that complements and enhances the efficiency of traditional dust management control practices.

Mining companies that are interested in applying our ATMOS-5D+ ™ platform, a fresh perspective on dust management, to better control mine haul road dust emissions are invited to contact our friendly ATMOS Global’s Air Quality and Climate Change Ambassadors ™ for further information and a confidential phone consultation by visiting our website.

October 24: Global Perspectives in Digital Media: A Panel
developing nations
Image by uniondocs
Digital technology and emerging platforms have opened up new ways of reflecting life around the world. We will share some content and begin a discussion with producers of five projects that have taken advantage of new technologies and novel production methods to bring global stories to North American and European audiences. What are the agendas in bringing these stories home? How do producers negotiate these cross-cultural exchanges? What strategies are used to engage audiences with distant lives and experiences?
This evening will feature a panel conversation with video clips from Video Nation (BBC 2), WSJ.com, Global Lives, Breakthrough, and Metropolis (VPRO), with producers in attendance for a panel discussion. Complete information on each participant below. Curated with Mandy Rose.

Video Nation was a ground-breaking access television and participatory media project which was co-founded in 1994 by producers Chris Mohr and Mandy Rose of the BBC’s Community Programmes Unit. Fifty people across the UK were given camcorders and training and recorded aspects of everyday life during the course of a year. Selected recordings were broadcast on BBC2 with the best known output, the Video Nation Shorts, broadcast on weeknights forty weeks a year for nearly six years. The project won a Race in the Media Award and the European Prix Iris. During Video Nation’s first decade ten thousand tapes were shot and 1,300 shorts were screened on TV. The project migrated to the web in 2001 and continues today in a new format as Video Nation Network.

Mandy Rose is an award winning producer who has overseen participatory and interactive projects including the BBC’s pioneering digital storytelling project Capture Wales (2001-2008), Voices (2004) & My Science Fiction Life (2005) the latter both webby nominated. Between 1994 and 2000 she was co-founder and producer of Video Nation. In addition to the UK project for which fifty people made recordings about everyday life, Video Nation travelled to the Caribbean, Bangladesh, Hong Kong, Africa, and the Balkans, bringing vivid, first person perspectives from these regions to BBC screens. Mandy blogs at collabdocs.wordpress.com/

WSJ.com, the online arm of The Wall Street Journal, aims to tell the stories behind the numbers and increasingly utilizes multimedia tools and videos on the web to give the audience a glimpse of the lives of people all around the globe.

Hilke Schellmann is a producer with WSJ.com, her first initiative being the multimedia project Faces of Health Care. The videos which were narrated by the protagonists themselves, showed the struggle of every day people in the US with health insurance. It was pegged to almost all the WSJ.com stories about health care reform. In March, Schellmann reported an influential video story about the sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church. She met with the stakeholders in Germany and made a very moving video, in which the victims talked about their plights and the church also addressed these issues directly.

The Global Lives Project is a collaboration of more than 700 filmmakers, photographers, artists and everyday people working together to create a video library of human life experience. They have produced ten recordings of 24 hours of daily life of individuals in Brazil, Malawi, Japan, China, Indonesia, India, Serbia, Lebanon, Kazakhstan and the US. Their multi-screen video installations have been shown at museums, galleries, universities and public spaces around the world including the United Nations University in Tokyo and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Currently they are developing an interactive web version of the installation that allows for dynamic navigation within the video content, tagging, participatory subtitling, geolocation and hypervideo navigation, as well as a feature-length film. Producers Rahul V Chittella and Khairani Barokka in attendance.

Breakthrough is an innovative, international human rights organization using the power of popular culture, media, and community mobilization to transform public attitudes and advance equality, justice, and dignity in India and the United States. Through initiatives in India and the United States, Breakthrough addresses critical global issues including violence against women, sexuality and HIV/AIDS, racial justice, and immigrant rights.

Madhuri Mohindar is a Multimedia Manager of Breakthrough’s video documentary campaign Restore Fairness which deploys new media tools like online video, blogs, democracy in action tools and and social networking to mobilize action on fair immigration and racial justice. Its documentaries include “Face the Truth: Racial Profiling Across America” produced with the Rights Working Group, a coalition of 275 organization across America, ‘Restore Fairness’ documentary produced with 26 leading human rights and immigrant rights organizations, and ‘Death by Detention’, voted as ‘Best Long Form Video’ for the 2009 DoGooder TV Nonprofit Video Awards.

VPRO Television’s Metropolis is an award-winning TV show and new media project featuring content produced by a network of more than 60 documentary filmmakers from around the world. In each episode, Metropolis brings viewers a geographically diverse collection of short films, all grouped around a weekly theme. From obesity and the lives of fifteen-year-old girls, to self defense, outcasts and Elvis impersonators, Metropolis presents a new ‘global view’ every week, and exposes the surprising differences and similarities between people and cultures worldwide. The televised version of Metropolis has been airing in The Netherlands since 2008. All short films produced by Metropolis —over 600 in total—are also available worldwide on the show’s website, which recently won a special commendation from at the 2009 Prix Europa Awards.

Kel O’Neill (US) & Eline Jongsma (NL) have been US correspondents for Metropolis since the project’s inception. In addition, they are currently working on a new media project entitled Empire, which investigates the legacy of European corporate-colonialism in former Dutch East India Company colonies and trading posts in Asia and Africa.
