The Nexus of Organized Cyber Crime and Cyber Terrorism

In recent years, Europe has been at increased risk of extremist violence and terrorism – from Islamic fundamentalists, far-right fascist hate groups and others, fueled by online radicalization and encrypted communication networks. At the same time, national and international law enforcement agencies are battling growing networks of organized criminals that are increasingly taking their activities online, using the notorious underground ‘dark web’ to commit illegal acts.

Faced with these threats, the EU-funded TAKEDOWN project is developing tools to understand why people turn to terrorism or organized crime, and what can be done to combat the problem. Due to the increasing relevance of the cyber-domain, the project also addressed the issues of (cyber)terrorism and organized (cyber)crime and put a particular focus on the nexus or the hybrids of organized crime and terrorism.

The webinar, presented by the coordinator of the H2020-project TAKEDOWN, will address:
– The outcomes of the research conducted in the project. Focusing on the main conclusions related to the nexus and the hybrids.
– The main practical outcomes of the project the two web platforms, (for practitioners) and (law enforcement agencies and solution providers)
