Herb Lin, the chief scientist at the Computer Science and Telecommunications Board (which is a component of the National Research Council of the National Academies), has been the study director of many important NRC reports related to cybersecurity (and other topics related to national security more generally, collected here).  Herb has reduced his vast stores of knowledge into a short, accessible primer on Cyber Conflict and National Security.  The paper was written for political scientists but it is a great introduction to the topic for anyone.
