Defining cyberterrorism

  • Laura Mayer Lux, Dra. Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, Chile


Abstract: The aim of this article is to define cyberterrorism. With that in mind, the first part of this article analyzes the notion of terrorism, a broad category to which the species “cyberterrorism” belongs. The second part of this article, on the other hand, is fundamentally about determining the scope of the term cyberterrorism, and presenting the challenges that this creates in a global and interconnected world.
