Cybercrime, cyber terrorism and cyber warfare difficult to distinguish

Bert-Jaap Koops, Professor of Regulation and Technology: Focus on cyber crime



On 29 January, Bert-Jaap Koops presented a report on ‘Large-scale cyber-attacks: suggestions for regulatory approaches’ to the Committee on Culture, Science, Education and Media of the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly in Strasbourg. The report, co-authored with Karine e Silva, was commissioned by the CoE Committee in response to a motion by Dutch senator and Committee rapporteur Hans Franken and will be used as background for a CoE report and recommendations on how to deal with large-scale attacks on the Internet.

An interview with Bert-Jaap about the report can be viewed here:
