Abstract

Although the digital infrastructure that underpins biotechnology benefits the entire globe, it is also becoming a target for sophisticated information operations and information retrieval. The new geopolitics of inequality and insecurity spanning beyond cultures and nations is being caused by developing cyber incidents against AI and cybersecurity in the bioeconomy. To maintain both national security interests and global security, it is crucial to maintain the accuracy, legibility, and integrity of data on contemporary biotechnology research. The increasing incidence of malware attacks on biological sequences such as DNA, to change resultant products in development, the rising incidence of data theft from crucial biomanufacturing processes, and increasing vulnerabilities in smart, connected healthcare technology could lead to the creation of biological weapons are some key factors boosting demand for cyberbiosecurity solutions and are expected to drive market revenue growth until 2030. The markets' revenue growth will be influenced by increased cyberbiosecurity research, high investment to enhance the security of biotechnology infrastructure, and an increasing number of efforts to raise cyberbiosecurity awareness.
