In the recent years, number of attacks on networks has exponentially increased therefore; interest in cyber attack detection has increased among the researchers. The tremendous opportunities for information and resource sharing that this entails comes a heightened need for information security, as computing resources are both more vulnerable and more heavily depended upon them before. This paper provides a review on current trends in cyber attack detection together with a study on technologies implemented by some researchers in this area. This will help to predict, pointing towards a number of areas of future research in the field of cyber attack detection and response.
