Cyber attacks down but actual risk may be rising
Monday - 11/1/2010, 6:05pm EDT
But experts from inside and outside DoD are warning that the study may be making an incorrect correlation between malicious cyber activity and actual risk.
Government Computer News reports the study said there were 71,000 attempted cyber attacks made last year, compared with 30,000 in the first half of this year.
The findings conflict with statements made by some officials at DoD who said the number of attacks and probes is actually rising. In the meantime, one cyber expert said in the Wired blog that the study does not take into account the increasing level of sophistication of cyber threats.
