Reference to the international classification, and by the survey and secondary data, to analyze Taiwan information and communication security industry. One the demand side, we found that information security budget accounted for 4.71%, is the highest but reduced compared to the same period last year.
In the information security industry chain, the growth rate of information security industry is better than service industry, showing that the information security industry is still in expansion and should increase investment. In this research, we found that domestic self-developed information security products sales pipeline is diverse, but without centralized agency system. The system integrator will be the largest bridge of the information security industry, enterprises and government. As for research and development, the long cycle of development causes the capacity of revenue is relatively weak. Moreover, because of the high cost for obtaining verification of domestic information security industry, they are difficult to obtain international certification and export to the markets of advanced countries. In addition to facing the development gap in talent and R&D for industrial gap, an important gap is the security insurance industry still unformed. Personal Data Protection Act is about to implement, the information security gaps and industrial loopholes will be unfavorable to the development of the domestic information security industry.
Information security industries in Taiwan are most of the small and medium-sized enterprises, who without sufficient funds to construct the cloud center or experimental platform. It is difficult to step into the development of cloud information security, so the cheap cloud experimental platform with scale is the urgent need for Taiwan.
In this research, we statistic the number of secure servers per million people was 751.3, which had an increase of 258.6 and a growth of 52.5% compared with 2010.
On the digital forensics research, we estimated the fastest growing industry will be the consulting services, including consultancy, education, and training, which becoming the most benefit industry.
