Towards a Literature Review on Cyber Counterintelligence

Abstract:

For those connecting the dots, the threat landscape continues to affirm the necessity of having Cyber Counterintelligence (CCI) at the centre of cybersecurity efforts. Concurrent with the growing interest in CCI in corporate boardrooms and the corridors of governments, CCI is evolving from a field of academic enquiry to a distinctive academic sub-discipline. The growing body of CCI-focused literature clearly attests to this evolution. A review of such literature has self-evident academic and practical benefits. This article advances a tentative, selective review of CCI literature that demonstrates the need for a more extensive and in-depth appraisal.
