Cyber security industry clusters

Main Article Content

Gulshen Huseynzade


Drıven by national security interests and private sector advocacy, the cybersecurity industry plays an important role in our shared economic and cultural reality. A key premise of this report is that the cybersecurity industry does not emerge in a vacuum, but rather is influenced by the environmental conditions that exist at a particular place and time. Industry can be seen as a manifestation of two broad interactions: industrial clustering processes. Through comprehensive mapping, we show that cybersecurity clusters are layered across large, diverse urban areas, within complex, multimodal transportation networks, with nearby universities, and across household income sectors.
