Bat Blue Releases Special Report: Terror Goes Cyber
Cyber Strategies and Capabilities of Al Qaeda, ISIS, Al Shabaab, and Boko Haram
By: Bat Blue Networks
Terror Goes Cyber: The Cyber Strategies and Capabilities of Al Qaeda, ISIS, Al Shabaab, and Boko Haram provides an in-depth analysis of the strategies and capabilities of non-state terrorist groups and how they are evolving with technology and social media.
Highlights of the report include:
-Al Qaeda sees the Internet as a place to disseminate officially sanctioned information and meet anonymously, rather than a place to loudly announce allegiances or a base from which to launch attacks.
-ISIS represents a new generation of terrorists with a strong online presence and a commitment to cyber terrorism. They boldly and loudly use the Internet to promote ideology and evoke binary “with us or against us” emotions.
-Boko Haram sees the Internet as one of many tools to further its activities on the ground, using online scams to raise a small amount of funds, and only recently working with ISIS to improve its social media strategy.
-Al Shabaab is reticent to use the Internet, and even partially banned its use from its controlled territories.
