Cyber Terrorism: Issues in Its Interpretation and Enforcement

Nazura Abdul Manap and Pardis Moslemzadeh Tehrani

Abstract—Cyber terrorism is a term which represents an act of terrorising using cyberspace as a medium. This phrase is controversial as there is no exact meaning of it. Generally, it is known as “The premeditated use of disruptive activities, or the threat thereof, against computers and/or networks, with the intention to cause harm or further social, ideological, religious, political or similar objectives”. The obvious dissimilarity between cyber terrorism and ordinary terrorism is its transborderless nature. Despite of that specific characteristic, the common challenge faced by both types of terrorism is the lack of definition on what terrorism is. What more to offer specific description on cyber terrorism, as it involves technical discrepancies and ambiguous legal interpretation. With the uncertainty nature of cyber crimes and its transborderless characteristic, the concerted effort from various related organisations are needed to solve problems brought about by this crime. Thus, this paper is aimed at: to explore the existing definitions of cyber terrorism and; to look at the current action taken by the relevant organisation in combating this issue.

Index Terms—Cyber, terrorism, interpretation, international effort.
