Richard Clark's "CHEW' Four Types of Cyber Crime

Interesting article at SD Times:

Richard Clarke talks cyber crime

Clarke invented an acronym, CHEW, to describe the four pre-eminent types of attacks as he sees them.

  •  C stands for crime.
  •  H belongs to “hacktivism.”
  •  E is for espionage
  •  W stands for war
I thought this was an interesting comment in the article:

"About 20 to 30 countries, including the U.S., have formed cyber war units. The Pentagon has also established a huge new organization, designed for offensive purposes, called the Cyber Command; it is of composed of the Army, Navy and Air Force. The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is also developing offensive tools."
