The growth of the cyber field has brought many security risks with it, for both the users and the security institutions of the nation states. This reality has become even more striking for Turkey, which has been faced with the greatest cyber attack of its history in 10 days. On December 24, 2015, the attack went from state institutions to the banking sector, and many private banks became inoperable. Though it is difficult to predict how the attack will proceed, it is likely that critical sectors will be attacked, such as efficient means of economy and services that provide widespread municipal services. EDAM has written a discussion paper on cyber security in Turkey, in particular the cyber security tools and capabilities of government agencies and domestic hacker groups.
