2009 Georgia Tech Cyber Threat Report

The Georgia Tech Information Security Center (GTISC) 2nd annual report on cyber threats covers five broad areas of interest:
  1. Malware
  2. Botnets
  3. Cyber warfare
  4. Threats to VoIP and mobile devices
  5. The evolving cyber crime economy
The cyber warfare section provides a discussion of the Russian-Georgian cyber conflict and the uncanny timing between online and kinetic attacks and then quotes several security commentators on the situation.

The report concludes with a discussion of the need and types of government regulation required to address these threats.
