Letter Report for the Committee on Deterring Cyberattacks

This letter report, the first phase of a multidisciplinary study of deterrence strategies for preventing cyberattacks, identifies key issues that merit study. The committee provides basic information that reveals the nature of the problem and lists important questions that can drive research on preventing, discouraging, and inhibiting hostile activity against U.S. information systems and networks. In the next phase, experts will prepare papers on key issues and questions, including the ones identified here.
