Worldwide Threat Assessment of the US Intelligence Community

Source: U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services

From Cyber:

Cyber threats to US national and economic security are increasing in frequency, scale, sophistication and severity of impact. The ranges of cyber threat actors, methods of attach, targeted systems, and victims are also expanding. Overall, the unclassified information and communication technology (ICT) networks that support US government, military, commercial, and social activities remain vulnerable to espionage and/or disruption. However the likelihood of a catastrophic attack from any particular actor is remote at this time. Rather than a "Cyber Armageddon" scenario that debilitates the entire US infrastructure, we envision something different. We foresee an ongoing series of low-to-moderate-level cyber attacks from a variety of sources over time, which will impose cumulative costs on US economic competitiveness and national security.
