Description

With digitalization strategies moving at a feverish pace and the cybersecurity threat landscape rapidly shifting its attack focus, critical national infrastructure (CNI) organizations are finding themselves at a crossroads. After so many years of working on internal, closed-loop systems, Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, Big Data analysis, and automation trends are making their way into more ruggedized, typically isolated industries that may have never had to consider an enterprise-level information technology (IT) or cybersecurity strategy before. Despite the significant benefits available to CNI entities who do move towards a more digitized, connected strategy—including increased operational efficacy and more robust operational controls and management capabilities—many are also finding that their once-isolated operational systems are now exposed to a litany of digital threats and attack types that operators never before concerned themselves with. Additionally, the persistent threat of hackers infiltrating either operational systems or traditional IT systems, CNI entities are also having to find a way to make cybersecurity solutions—many of which are typically geared to only IT-based cyber threats—work for both their IT and operational systems, a challenge that has only led to additional market fragmentation and exasperation, as many operators find themselves struggling with where to even begin the creation of a cybersecurity strategy.

Research Scope

This research service includes information about cybersecurity solutions in-use across CNI organizations, specifically four key customer segments: Oil & Gas, including refineries, plants, and distributors; Utilities, focused on electric power plants and distribution centers; Mass Transit, including rail, bus, and airport transit organizations; and Ports of Entry, including land and maritime checkpoints and ports. This report is focused on customer pain points and use-cases in the market and showcases examples of best practices. As such, market sizing and regional growth rates are mentioned to provide background information, but an in-depth analysis will follow in later research services. This research service focuses on technology adoption trends, customer use-cases and best practices, and insights into vendors and technology capabilities currently demanded by CNI customers. The analysis includes technology solutions and key capabilities in demand by customers across CNI verticals; an analysis of how the cybersecurity threat landscape affecting CNI organizations has changed over the last decade; identification of pain points felt by each CNI customer vertical and next steps to take for organizational planning; a regional trend analysis, including growth projections and drivers to promote further security investment by customer vertical; specific use-cases highlighting key vendors, pain points, and solutions available in the market to solve bespoke challenges facing CNI organizations; and Mega Trends and technology innovations influencing market solutions.

This research service also discusses how various technology solutions and the technical maturity of CNI customers can be classified in order to plan for future security investments. Further, this service also identifies key industry drivers and restraints to market growth, key industry growth opportunities, and provides a succinct conclusion section that highlights trends in the market.


Key Issues Addressed

  • What are some of the key pain points that CNI customers feel today regarding their cybersecurity protection?
  • Who are the main perpetrators of cyber attacks on critical national infrastructure organizations and what tactics are they using?
  • What is the current mix of cybersecurity capabilities necessary to protect critical national infrastructure systems?
  • How will more advanced capabilities and industry Mega Trends affect future technology mix and procurement strategies?
  • How do compliance regulations, both current and potential new requirements, influence investment decisions for critical national infrastructure cybersecurity?
  • What are some key regional use-cases that can be viewed as best practices for critical national infrastructure organizations?
