Abstract: This paper introduces a classification scheme for the visual classification of cyber attacks. Through the use of the scheme, the impact of various cyber attacks throughout the history of South Africa are investigated and classified. The goal of this paper is to introduce a classification scheme that arranges attacks into different classes and sub-classes, which is presented visually. To enhance the visual description, each class has a maximum of three sub-classes, which can overlap. This classification scheme helps to show the diverse impacts of cyber attacks in South Africa. This method of classification can be used for the assessment of any cyber attack and to find similarities between attacks.
