The report is a collection of top cyber-threats that have been assessed in 2013. ENISA has collected over 250 reports regarding cyber-threats, risks, and threat agents. ETL 2013 is a comprehensive compilation of the top 15 cyber-threats assessed.
The objective of this work is to provide stakeholders with information about developments in the cyber-threat landscape and to identify threat trends for the near future, ie in the coming year. For the prediction of trends, important areas of IT innovation and development were taken as a basis. The assessed top threats from 2013 are mapped to these areas and thus an emerging threat landscape is created.
