CRS Report - Cybersecurity: Selected Cyberattacks, 2012-2021

This report to Congress provides a brief overview of 53 cyberattacks conducted against either the US government of private sector entities in the last ten years. It describes attribution in cyberspace, confidence of attribution, and common types of cyberattack.

Sections in the report include:

• Attribution,

• Common cyberattack terms,

• Nation-state cyberattacks, and

• Foreign criminal cyberattacks

This is a highly generalized discussion for non-technical personnel. The definition of terms section is nicely done. The selection of attacks presented is broadly representative rather than comprehensive.
