Security through innovation

Cybersecurity sector as a driving force in the national economic development

THE KOSCIUSZKO INSTITUTE REPORT

CYBERSECURITY MARKET
IS A SUBSTANTIAL PART OF GLOBAL ECONOMY.

Cybersecurity is not only about cost. If built properly, it may also generate revenue for the country. A strong national cybersecurity sector does not only help protect the state, but it can also be an important export commodity and a driver of economic growth.

PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS IN POLAND:
A POTENTIAL TO BE TAPPED

The national cybersecurity sector cannot thrive without an active involvement of the government in both the civilian and the military domain. From a meticulously designed and executed national cybersecurity strategy through adequate partnership mechanisms to proper R&D programme, the government should support the cybersecurity industry throughout this chain.

EARLY BIRDS MAKE THE PROFITS

There are countries which went down that road and they are already reaping the benefits of the rapidly growing global cybersecurity market.

IN POLAND, WE HAVE THE MEANS

Poland has the potential to join and profit from the exponential rise of this market. It has a strong ICT sector, adept workforce, and a thriving academic community.

POLAND CAN BENEFIT FROM ITS MEMBERSHIP
IN THE SUPRANATIONAL ORGANISATIONS

POLAND MUST UNDERTAKE ACTION TO FULLY EMBRACE THE OPPORTUNITY

The key conclusions of the report lead us to propose:

Developing public-private cooperation mechanisms
Developing military-industry cooperation mechanisms
Devising a robust R&D programme
Developing markets
