The Kosciuszko Institute is happy to present its latest Policy Brief: “Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom – How Terrorists Use Cyberspace and How to Fight with Them”.
The Internet is a double-edged sword. Like most modern inventions, it has the potential to bring progress and improvement, but also carries with it negative consequences. The “dark side of the web” appears in many different ways and serves as a tool to achieve the goals of various actors – criminals, hostile countries and increasingly terrorists.
Terrorist groups and lone-wolves recognized this “advantage” of cyberspace, and they use it in a multitude of different ways. It is one of the biggest threats which the international community faces. However, every coin has two sides, and the Internet gave completely new opportunities for those who combat terrorism.
The goal of this policy brief is not only to introduce selected methods in which terrorists use cyberspace, but also to present a brief overview of the activities undertaken by security agencies.
