Topic: Avoiding Cyberterrorism Through Actionable Intelligence
Abstract: According to the United States Institute of Peace (USIP), cyberterrorism can be best defined as the combination of terrorism and cyberspace. By inciting violence or spreading fear among a target population—for example, by destroying key infrastructure, stealing sensitive information, intercepting military communications, or advancing an extremist political agenda—cyberterrorist attacks are carried out to further nefarious political or social objectives (Sheldon & Hanna, 2022; Yunos & Sulaman, 2017).
Cyberterrorism has grabbed headlines in the recent past within the information security community and government bodies. In an era of digitalization and rapid technology advancements, the havoc caused by cyber terrorists can debilitate economies, disrupt organizational infrastructure, and put national security at risk.
This webinar will discuss the measures we can take to combat cyber terrorism and avoid their serious consequences. Participants will learn how to collect, assess, and share actionable intelligence to prevent security threats.
