You're probably gearing up for the well-known security risks you've watched emerge over the past year to go front burner in the new year -- the insider threat, Web 2.0, and targeted attacks. But don't pop that champagne cork just yet: Some obscure potential threats that could be more difficult to prepare for and defend against also are looming for 2009.

These aren't your typical enterprise hack attacks. They're mainly large-scale Internet threats that could trickle down to your organization. We're talking Internet network infrastructure attacks, radical extremist hackers, Web attacks that adversely affect online ad revenue, and even the unthinkable -- human casualties as a result of a cyberattack.
