Abstract: Cyberspace has proved resilient to overall attacks and other damage, dynamics evolved in such a way that for attackers have been easier than for defenders. In Romania one in four computers is infected with some kind of virus. That is 1,5 millions computers. The last year figures show an increase with 70% of the number of cybernetic attacks. The specialists had to analyze over 78 millions security alerts. Romania suffers from the lack of specialized cyber security legislation. Good or bad it would be able to determine a national rule that would determine in return a coherent and sustained action of all public or private institutions in Romania. It’s something that many European countries discovered, and they are to the second or third edition of national cyber security legislation.

Keywords:  Cyberspace , vulnerability, cyber security , cyber espionage , cyber crime.
