Cyber security is a term often used in computer networks and applications to defend the system from external cyber-attacks such as hacking, unauthorized access, injection of codes such as computer Trojans, malware, virus and other security threats. These attacks range from email to the state-backed interruption of the computer-based systems that runs a critical national infrastructure. This infrastructure includes the water network as well as the transport and electricity networks. The key objective is to maintain the confidentiality of the data or information shared across the system. It is also applicable for data monitoring in connected private and public computer systems to secure the data and maintain confidentiality of the information.

National Infrastructure are mainly defined as those services, sites, systems, people, information, processes and networks, which are essential for a nation to operate and protect the essential data and information. In addition, it also includes some sites, functions and organizations which are not dangerous to the maintenance of necessary services, however, which require security due to the possibility of various threats on chemical sites and civil nuclear sites.

The global critical infrastructure cyber security market is experiencing growth owing to the factors such as growing number of cyber threats and stringent government regulations & practices. Public or private organizations are implementing technologies to safeguard their critical infrastructure against information misuse, delivering fast response to eliminate suspicious activities and defend both physical and cyber systems. Such factors are also impelling the growth of critical national infrastructure cyber security market. However, complexity in security infrastructure, lack of interoperability between security products are the major factors which are restraining the growth of the market. Apart from this, lack of expertise and industrial control system understanding is also a major factor which is expected to hamper the growth of critical national infrastructure cyber security market.
