Read about the latest happening in geopolitical cyberspace and cyber terrorist attacks

This category provides expertly curated news on the geopolitical and terrorism related aspects of the cyberspace. It has now been globally accepted that cyberspace has emerged as the fifth domain of warfare and geopolitics; the other four being land, air, water and space. No country can now afford to overlook the cyber dimension to their national security. The terrorists have become very much active on the cyber space as is evident from the recent activities of the Islamic State. Cyber terrorism has emerged as a major challenge for the security agencies. The terrorists are finding it meaningful to conduct cyber attacks on the national assets and make them dysfunctional and achieve their means of spreading terrorism. The state actors are also finding it convenient to conduct cyber attacks for achieving geopolitical gains because of lack of attribution in cyberspace. A “Great Game-Cyber” is being played now among the major powers of the world wherein the security of private sector and government sector is intricately linked to the national security. For any security professional, to understand the geopolitical and terrorism aspects of cyberspace, news from this category should never be missed.
