The February Cyber Security Newsletter covers emerging trends and threats for 2011. The newsletter may be accessed at www.sfasu.edu/itsecurity. The year 2010 was another busy year for cyber security professionals and end users, as we faced a number of cyber security incidents and events. Twenty million new strains of malware were created (including new threats and variants of existing families), the same amount as 2009. The number of malicious websites identified in 2010 increased more than 100 percent from 2009. More than 11 million records were involved in data breaches in 2010.
