This subject explores the reasons why terrorists utilise the online environment along with an analysis of the costs and benefits they accrue in doing so. It develops a holistic, critical, and wide-ranging understanding of current and future implications related to the use of cyberspace by terrorists. The counter terrorism measures deployed against such use of cyberspace will also be covered. Students will critically engage with both primary (through secure subscription services) and secondary resources related to terrorist use of cyberspace, and analyse and critique counter efforts undertaken by both government and the private sector in combatting such use of cyberspace.
