dc.description.abstractThere is a great increase in the perception of terrorism after 9/11 and this includes cyber threats. In order to counter cyberterrorism, we need to understand how cyberterrorism work and how to counter it. This dissertation will explain what cyberterrorism is, differing views of what cyberterrorism comprises, the perpetrators of cyberterrorism, their motivations, tools, targets, and threats. Singapore is chosen as a case study because Singapore, being one of the safest cities and the most network ready countries, with one of the highest Internet penetration rates in the world at 59% with 2.7 million Internet users as of Mar/08, might become a prime target of cyberterrorism. This dissertation will also explain what the threats in Singapore are and how to combat the threats at the national level, private sector level and the individual level, what are the countermeasures, recommendations and improvements needed.en_US
