Defense against Cyber Terrorism

As the world becomes more dependent upon computer systems, the danger of cyber terrorism will grow. Clearly, there must be a much stronger emphasis on computer security. In addition to the basic security measures already recommended in this book, there are also some recommendations for preparing for and protecting systems against cyber terrorism:

• Many recommend a Manhattan Project-level government program designed to prepare for and defend against cyber warfare.

• Major academic institutions must begin dedicated research and academic programs that are devoted solely to computer security.

• Computer crime must be treated far more seriously, with stronger punishments and more active investigation of suspected crimes.
