WUZHEN (China), November 20. /TASS/. Participants in the World Internet Conference in China’s Wuzhen East China's Zhejiang province have urged the international community to invigorate efforts against cyber terrorism.
“The Internet has given the humankind not only a new possibility for communication, but has also greatly influenced the life of society,” President of the People's Public Security University of China Cheng Lin said on Thursday. But the Internet has also become a new tool for terrorist activities. It is used as a propaganda instrument by extremists. They recruit new members via the Internet, commit organized terrorist attacks and stage financial machinations. “In such a situation, a top priority task for the entire world community is to pool efforts to fight cyber terrorism,” he said.
As a first step in the fight against cyber terrorism, countries, in his words, should agree on the very notion of terrorism in cyber space. Then, they should elaborate a legal framework for anti-terrorism activities in the cyber space, develop technologies of preventive measures, create international mechanisms, develop cooperation among specialists and pool efforts in training specialists to fight against cyber terrorism.
China opened its first global Internet conference on November 19. The three-day event is attended by more than 1,500 experts from 175 countries.
