Consultation description

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has commissioned RSM’s Economic Consulting team (PACEC) to provide statistics about the size, scale and future opportunities for the UK Cyber Security sector. This will include estimates of the sector’s revenue, employment and contribution to the UK economy. The research is being conducted in collaboration with Queen’s University Belfast’s Centre for Security Information Technology (CSIT).

The findings of the research will be used to inform government policy on cyber security and how government can support growth in the sector. This supports the Government’s aim to make the UK one of the most secure places to do business online and one of the world’s leading digital nations.

As part of this research, RSM is conducting a survey of organisations associated with the UK cyber security sector, including cyber security companies. Companies which offer cyber security products, services and solutions, whether as their sole business offer or as a proportion of their business activity, are encouraged to complete the survey. It is important that as many organisations as possible associated with the UK cyber security sector respond, to ensure the data collected is robust.

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Please note that any data collected through the survey will be treated in strictest confidence, used solely for the purposes of this study, and not shared with any third parties. The survey platform is ISO27001 accredited, and RSM complies with the Market Research Society Code of Conduct, and the Data Protection Act 1998.
