Abstract

Terrorism is no longer a concern for only a religious or ethnic few. It is now a very real threat to the entire global community. A major factor in this widespread concern is the recent emergence of technologically based terrorist activity, or cyber-terrorism. This study provides a brief history of cyber-terrorism, along with discussion of this new threat. Contemporary security measures are discussed, acknowledging fundamental flaws not only in these technologies, but in overall strategies being used. This will form the basis for the major focus of this research: a suggested nine point security plan, aimed at developing new strategies in the fight against cyber-terrorism.
