October is the European Cyber Security Month (ECSM), a European Union advocacy campaign which aims to promote cyber security among citizens, to change their perception of cyber-threats and provide up to date security information, through education and sharing good practices. In this respect we may contribute to the EU's campaign with a research paper on cyber threats. The year 2014 has brought big news, significant changes and remarkable successes in the cyber-threat landscape. Experts and media correspondents have stated that the crisis in Ukraine was the largest cyber-war battlefield since Russia's cyber-attacks on Estonia in 2007 and Georgia in 2008. The aim of this study is to analyze the use of cyber threats in the wider context of hybrid warfare, with focus on the Ukrainian case, in order to emphasize the lessons learned and the importance of cooperation in cyber security and defence area.
