This report is from Phase 1 of GIFCT’s research network initiative. Please note that during this time the network was known as the Global Research Network on Terrorism and Technology (GRNTT) and was delivered by the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI).
The International Cyber Terrorism Regulation Project (ICTRP) has established an online resource consisting of a compilation of online regulatory resources in the field of counterterrorism, and an analytical framework for their use.
