In the current scenario, organizations across the globe are cashing in on the opportunity of building innovative products and services and exporting them to different geographies. Also, investment into R&D has increased substantially. Trends like these and more are shaping the industry development agenda. The NASSCOM Cyber Security growth roadmap report pegs the industry to be worth USD 35 billion by the year 2025.

It is vital to study all such tracks of industry development and propel actions in each.
