This paper is part of the Centre for Risk Studies’ Working Paper Series on threats to the global economy. The publication focuses in the Space and Technology threat class: a cyber catastrophe.
The cyber threat landscape is evolving with new aspects of the threat emerging all the time. This report examines the risk from a business perspective. We have built a framework for classifying cyber threat and compiled a database of significant past attacks. We examine approaches to measuring vulnerabilities to attacks and whether the risk has industry sector and geographic variations.
