Abstract

The cyberspace is primarily concerned with the security, control, and protection of shared information that are vital for decision making processes in any type of communication network. Terrorists now threaten public security by using cyberspace and social media technology to create fear and spread violence as the ways of intimidating a government or the general public. The readiness to respond to these threats (both internally and externally) to security, requires a combination of civilian and military tools in addition to economic and diplomatic resources that are needed to inhibit threats and to moderate their effects. Revitalization and strengthening of the national orientation with a mandate on value re-orientation, equity, fairness and social justice in the international community is necessary especially in information sharing in order to put an end to the risk of cyberterrorism. Also cyber innovations open up new opportunities for public-private partnerships to foster security initiatives and promote better efficiencies in the affairs of the government.
