The horrific kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian school girls has drawn international attention to and condemnation of Boko Haram. While the current crisis has brought a global focus on this dangerous group, they have been engaged in terrorist activities for a number of years.

The issue of cybersecurity is vast and requires analysis from a range of experts and perspectives. The Bipartisan Policy Center Homeland Security Project compiled this list of reports on cyber security from policy analysis centers across the country, as well as resources from businesses and news sources. It is our intent to provide a helpful starting tool to cyber security researchers who seek a wide array of opinions and information.
