FireEye paper puts international cyber attacks into geopolitical context

FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE) said it has announced the publication by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence of a research paper entitled “Pandemonium: Nation States, National Security, and the Internet., the first paper in the first volume of a new research series on strategic cyber security called “The Tallinn Papers.”

Tallinn is a city that suffered a massive international cyber attack in 2007.

“Pandemonium” was written by FireEye senior global threat analyst Dr. Kenneth Geers, and adapted from the FireEye 2013 report entitled “World War C: Understanding Nation-State Motives Behind Today´s Advanced Cyber Attacks,” authored by Geers; Darien Kindlund, director of threat research; Ned Moran, senior malware researcher; and Rob Rachwald, senior director of market research at FireEye.

The paper examines the growing connection between network security and national security by placing a wide range of international cyber attacks within a broader geopolitical context.

FireEye has invented a purpose-built, virtual machine-based security platform that provides real-time threat protection to enterprises and governments worldwide against the next generation of cyber attacks.
