The private security industry in Spain is predicted to turnover 4115 million euros in 2017, with an estimated annual growth of 3% principally through the increase in local government and public administration outsourcing security and vigilance contracts. The sector is undergoing a transformation due to closer cooperation between private security companies and the state forces of Law and Order, and a change in the law in 2014 that gives private security operatives power of arrest and to carry out crowd control measures.
In terms of cybercrime the number of incidents rose by 22.3% in Q1 2017, and the number of attacks on strategic state infrastructures has multiplied by 7 in the last two years.
