INSPIRING LECTURE

The Future of Cybercrime and Terrorism

Future terrorism uses new digital technology and organisational structures in order to achieve its goal, affecting critical infrastructure. Which technologies pose the biggest threats? How can we protect ourselves digitally?

The future under fire, our safety at risk. Technology offers our society new opportunities but also leads to extreme danger. Groups with the wrong intentions can wreak havoc by attacking critical infrastructure. Our health is at risk. Pacemakers and hospital equipment are being hacked and 4D and bioprinters can become our biggest nightmares. It is almost impossible to keep up with the development of digital terrorism. But we might, if we take the right measures. This lecture can be combined with ‘Organisation of the future’. It can also be customised on request.

rom hacking hospitals to seizing control of the electrical grid, hackers are exploring technology for vulnerabilities. And the danger comes from far worse than stolen data or infrastructure disruption: biotech discoveries could easily be turned into weapons of mass destruction, while 3D printers could help criminals get their hands on easily printed guns.

Topics that will be covered during the lecture

bioprinter1

The danger of 4D and bioprinters

The terrorists of the future no longer need to smuggle weapons across borders. Online, they’ll be able to find the products they need to build any kind of weapon from lasers, to rockets, to nano-weapons. In the future, everything will be printed and assembled on the spot. As bioprinting improves, they will be able to print stockpiles of Ebola, lethal strains of influenza and many other unimaginable horrors.
Communicatie-en-recrutering

Recruitment of terrorists

Terrorists will increase their use of the Darknet, allowing them nearly invincible anonymity, and even the most advanced investigative agencies can’t break through this veil of secrecy. And slick propaganda on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube is becoming the new normal for terrorist groups, enticing the disgruntled to extremism and violence.

Attacks on critical infrastructure

Terrorists of the future might launch sophisticated, simultaneous cyber assaults on critical infrastructure. By compromising water treatment, power, and hospitals simultaneously, they could sicken millions, overwhelming the system. By joining this biological attack with broad power outages and hospital hacks, they could kill hundreds of thousands of people.
Gezondheid-in-gevaar

Health at risk

Patients’ medical devices will soon be wirelessly connected via a central hub, allowing nurses and physicians real-time access to vital signs and treatment options. The terrorists of the future are paying attention, and the consequences are almost too frightening to consider. When a doctor can increase the drip rate on an intravenous bag or administer a dose of morphine, so too can a determined hacker.

The organisation of terrorism

The terrorism of the future will be hard to discover and even harder to stop. It will happen less and less from behind a rifle and more and more from behind a computer or a phone. Terrorists are becoming increasingly decentralised; they’re splintering into small, local, independent, self-financing cells. Even the most advanced tech can’t prevent an attack, nor can the most skilled intelligence services guarantee our safety.

Internet of Things under fire

Communicating freely, smart devices joined by the IoT promise great things. Experts, however, worry that the hyper-connectivity of the IoT-linked SCADA offers an easy target for malicious software and hackers. This is no small problem, and it’s not unlikely that we’ll see coordinated, simultaneous attacks on critical infrastructure in the future.
Toekomst-van-terror-management-1

What measures can we take?

To strengthen our counterterrorism strategies, we have to adapt to contemporary threats. One way of doing this is by using cyber technology to shut down digital communication between terrorists. A major focus area in the fight against terrorism is prediction and prevention. Biometric recognition technologies, communication monitoring and the use of big data for prediction are powerful tools.

Afterwards everyone was enthusiastic. Not only because of the way you illustrated the generic trends but also because of the way you applied them to the agricultural and livestock industry - the market in which De Heus operates.
