CYBER TERRORISM – A GLOBAL THREAT TO SOCIAL ORDER




Abstract:
Over recent decades, development has been based on the development of information and communication technologies. The Internet, one of the most widely spread technologies today, is used by individuals, companies, government and different government agencies. The widespread use of the Internet has contributed to the amount of data and information being shared. Thus, this medium has become a field of interest for different types of attacks. Cyber terrorism, one of the more frequent types of attacks, is based on the use of the Internet, and information and communication technology. All attacks are carried out against the security of the attacked country and its inhabitants. Cyber terrorism represents the greatest threat to national and international security since the creation of nuclear weapons. The paper provides an overview of registered cyber-attacks, with special emphasis on cyber- attacks registered in the Republic of Serbia and neighboring countries. It also provides a comparison of legal regulations which sanction the illegal activities of Internet users, especially activities aimed at disrupting security of states and their citizens.
