Step 8: Create Regional Fact Sheet on Identification and Implication of Cybersecurity Threats
To illustrate the impact of cybersecurity threats, develop a one-page fact sheet using one of the regions from your matrix. Explain the cybersecurity threat experienced in one region, the evolution of the associated malware, the implications (e.g., economic, political, national security, etc.) of it to that region and how global cybersecurity policies might be used to counter the effects.
You will discuss six specific characteristics (purpose, size, attack method, attribution, etc.) of the malware and describe how these characteristics have emerged, changed, or evolved over the past five to 10 years. Also discuss what contributing factors may cause these characteristics to change, and how these characteristics may change over the next 10 years. How might these technologies be countered by global cybersecurity policy controls (do not describe technology controls) in the future? Support your position with policy, security practice, theories, principles, and recommendations based on your own thoughts, examples, and cited references.
Submit your regional fact sheet for feedback.
