Even with budget cuts at agencies, at least one budget line will continue to grow - cybersecurity.

Vendors selling cyber solutions to government will have room to grow for the forseeable future, according to surveys by Meritalk and Cisco, reports Executive Gov.

53 per cent of respondents to the Cisco survey say budget concerns will affect how they reach cybersecurity goals. The Meritalk survey says agencies only have about 40 per cent of the money they need to secure their networks.
