Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) November 2, 2005
Andrew M. Colarik, PhD, a cyber terrorism expert, today announced the completion of a new book that details the vulnerabilities of the Global Information Infrastructure and its use by terrorists. The new book is to be released early next year by Idea Group Publishing.
This is the first book in the emerging domain of cyber terrorism to actually detail many of the weaknesses in the Global Information Infrastructure that Western states now depend on for economic superiority. This book is designed to be a brief that outlines scores of recent terrorist atrocities, political objectives, and their use of cyberspace. “Envision a cyber terrorist removing five people from a watch list hours before they board a jetliner. Imagine having your identity used to rent the truck that blows up a government building. Visualize having your blood type changed in a medical database before a major operation. Just how would these events affect your life?” said Dr. Colarik.
Much of this book is dedicated to illustrating the use of the Global Information Infrastructure by terrorists for the communication and coordination of terrorist cells, the gathering of target intelligence, and the use of cyber criminal activities as a force multiplier for both physical attacks and infrastructure destabilization. "The Global Information Infrastructure is the new supply chain for terrorist organizations such as al Qaeda and its supporters. CYBER TERRORISM: Political and Economic Implications identifies seven initiatives towards securing it from terrorists and cyber criminals alike" added Dr. Colarik.
