Coming from a call for papers and workshop held earlier this year, the Computer Science and Telecommunications Board of the National Academies has released Proceedings of a Workshop on Deterring CyberAttacks: Informing Strategies and Developing Options for U.S. Policy. The report focuses on the papers presented at a June workshop, and range from general technical examinations of cyberattacks and deterrence to cover connections with privacy, international laws and agreements, and how to best organize efforts at deterrence.

In addition to the papers, the reports include the letter report the study group submitted to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. It focuses on describing the nature of the problem and identifying important questions related to preventing, discouraging and reducing cyberattacks against U.S. cyberinfrastructure.
