The future of armed resistance: cyberterror? mass casualties? final report on a Conference held May 15-17, 2000 at the University Pantheon-Assas (Paris II)
MetadataShow full item record
In May, 2000, a conference convened to examine the decisionmaking process that leads sub-state groups engaged in armed resistance to develop new operational methods. The conference was particularly concerned to understand whether such groups would engage in cyberterrorism, including the conditions under which they might try to cause mass disruption of information systems. The conference also examined whether such groups would try to cause mass casualties, particularly through the use of chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) weapons. The conference, organized by the Center on Terrorism and Irregular Warfare of the Naval Postgraduate School, with the assistance of the Centre de Recherche sur les Menaces Criminelles Contemporaines of the University of Paris (II), was unprecedented in that its participants included former and active members of terrorist groups, as well as a hacker. It was equally unprecedented in the amount of time within and outside the formal structure of the conference that investigators were able to spend with these unique participants and in the opportunity to work with them through a series of problems in a controlled simulation. Together these characteristics made the conference an unique opportunity to learn about terrorism.
