USING THE INTERNET RESEARCH TO DETECT AND DEFEAT CRIME, TERRORISM AND EXTREMIST RHETORIC - Dr Kacper Gradon, Visiting Fulbright Professor, University of Colorado

Dr Kacper Gradon will focus on the practical challenges of combating violent radicalisation, extremism and lone actor terrorism, where the modern Information Technologies play the ever-increasing role. The specific focus will be put on the use of both the "regular" Internet (also known as the "Clear Net") and the Dark Web by the terrorist groups, lone extremists and the organized criminal enterprises for the purpose of propaganda dissemination, know-how and intelligence gathering, target selection, attack preparation and financing of operations (including the use of the crypto-currencies).

The workshop presenter will draw from the outcomes of his research (EU FP7 PRIME Project and Fulbright research at the University of Colorado, Boulder) as well as his FBI/NCFTA (National Cyber-Forensics Training Alliance) training in Conducting Cyber Research and Analysis in the Dark Web. The workshop is intended to show and discuss the real-life examples of how the available technologies can both enable the development of new forms of crime and provide investigative tools to the law-enforcement and security services. Active engagement in discussion is strongly encouraged.
