SAN FRANCISCO – Richard Stiennon, Chief Research Analyst, IT-Harvest, gave this talk at the RSA Conference. He called it  Myth Busting the Security Landscape and Development Cycle. Stiennon’s point is myths abound in the security landscape, from what a vendor or product does to how to build security into software in the first place.

While it looks like the cybersecurity industry is consolidating, Stiennon said it is actually normal growth and evolution. Some 1,800 companies around the world provide cybersecurity consulting, products and services, including more than 800 in the United States – and 18 in Michigan. He predicts the cybersecurity industry will grow over the next few years to well over $600 billion in annual worldwide sales.
