Categories of Cyber Attack
The Sept./Oct. 2012 issue of CrossTalk: The Journal of Defense Software Engineering in the article "Identifying Cyber Ecosystem Security Capabilities" by Peter M. Fonash has a table of cyber attack categories. The list is presented here for reference:
- Attrition (brute force)
- Social Tactics
- Improper Usage (Insider Attack
- Physical Action / Loss or Theft of Equipment
- Multiple Component (Combining multiple techniques)
I have found list list useful when considering areas of risk.
