Terrorists’ use of the Internet – including how it is utilized to recruit, organize criminal acts and raise money – was the focus of a United Nations gathering this week which brought together experts from around the world.

Participants at the two-day gathering in Berlin, convened by the UN Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force (CTITF), also discussed the effectiveness of laws currently in place regarding direct attacks on networks and computer systems.
