How terrorists use the internet
Item Usage Stats
The advent of technology has offered various advantages to terrorist and insurgent groups as well as it has done to the states, business world, and ordinary individuals. Terrorists have been using the Internet with the purposes of propaganda; training, planning, and execution; and financing. This thesis aims to analyze how terrorists actually do use the Internet for those purposes, by which means. In that context, case studies are reviewed to explore the methods employed. Findings of this study reveal that terrorists still use the real world to carry out attacks more than they make use of the Internet for this aim. Therefore, the Internet use of terrorists has come as an adjunct to their real life activities. In that consideration, this thesis emerges as a preliminary survey trying to illustrate the link between terrorism and cybersecurity studies.
