SEDEC 2024

For the threats to national security, the Homeland Security sector has become one of the most essential areas where critical and emerging technologies are used.

Homeland Security that encompasses a wide range of issues such as the security of land, air and sea borders, security of critical facilities and factories, cyber security issues in every field, natural disasters and social security, to the protection of above-ground and underground wealth, has become one of the most prioritized and financially important issues of all world governments today.
Today's increasingly frequent and complex internal security threats make it quite difficult for the institutions and organizations in charge of homeland security activities to eradicate the threat using traditional methods and capabilities. Therefore, the institutions responsible for homeland security are attempting to increase their efficiency and capabilities by using advanced technologies also strengthening inter-agency coordination and enhancing the credibility of authorities responsible for homeland security (police, intelligence, coast guard, fire department etc.).

In this context, broadband connections, advanced image collection devices, autonomous systems (UAVs, autonomous vehicles and robots) allow homeland security institutions to see the "big picture", while big data analysis, artificial intelligence, computerized visualization, augmented reality, virtual reality and other support systems aid in the development of quick and accurate decision-making mechanisms.

The homeland security market is fast-paced and dynamic, constantly evolving to answer new threats to a homeland security. The market is expanding rapidly due to security challenges such as terrorism, cross-border disputes, illegal immigration, smuggling and cyber threats. According to Allied Market Research, the global homeland security market is predicted to grow up to $801 billion by 2028.
From smart surveillance to cybersecurity, artificial intelligence to the internet of things (IoT), six trends have emerged that are reshaping the market and revolutionizing the structure of the industry. These trends are;

Trend 1: Cybersecurity as a growing priority
Trend 2: Rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Trend 3: Internet of Things and Smart Surveillance
Trend 4: Biometric Authentication and Identification
Trend 5: Drone Technology (Eyes in the Sky)
Trend 6: The rise of Private Public Partnerships

As we move forward to the future, these six trends are redefining how we perceive security and reconfiguring the strategies and technologies used to deliver it. In a world where threats are rapidly evolving, innovation, awareness and adaptability will be vital to ensure our collective security and promote a peaceful and secure homeland.
