This paper analyzes the current growing patterns of likely sources of attacks on information systems security based on historical data from 1997 to 2003. The current trend patterns are analyzed using indices and growth rates. The future trend of these sources of attacks is projected using time series analysis method. This research helps people who are interested in information systems security to better understand the likely source of attacks to information systems. The developed projecting models can help people to forecast the future for each of these likely sources of attacks to information systems.
