Finding more comprehensive and robust ways of protecting data and medical information from hackers is even more necessary as the digital world continues to evolve. Everyone is talking about the positives of cyber technology, as well as the “dark web,” but no orene has put a number on its growth or its cost until now.
“We use the spending patterns of the past to really predict what’s going to happen in the future,” Matt Hummer, director of analytics at Govini, said on Federal Drive with Tom Temin. “In this past most recent year, overall spending actually reached $20 billion, and that’s more than twice the amount it was from five years ago. If we continue that current trajectory, we’re going to be looking at $43 billion worth of cyber spending in the federal government by fiscal year 2020.”
