Abstract: Uneasiness arises from the possibility of random cyber attacks. In the global information and network warfare battle, cyberterrorism has become a critical concern in that terrorists may seek to strike the innocent and wreak havoc due to dependency on networked communications. However, much misconception exists over what exactly cyberterrorism entails and the role of cybercrime and hacking. A conceptual framework is therefore proposed and focuses on clarifying the field by summarising techniques, objectives, targets and capabilities. The framework strives to provide a more descriptive synopsis of cyberterrorism and form a good baseline to contextually place the area of cyberterorism against the backdrop of other computer and network crime.
