The Cyber Desk Review is a periodic report and analysis that addresses two main subjects: cyber-terrorism (offensive, defensive, and the media, and the main topics of jihadist discourse); and cyber-crime, whenever and wherever it is linked to jihad (funding, methods of attack). The Cyber Desk Review addresses the growing significance that cyberspace plays as a battlefield in current and future conflicts, as shown in the recent increase in cyber-attacks on political targets, crucial infrastructure, and the Web sites of commercial corporations.
Over recent decades we have witnessed several successful attacks and attempts by terrorist organizations to strike trains around the world. Most of these attacks were carried out in Asia and Europe where the rail infrastructure is a common means of transportation. An attack and/or successful threat against train function is liable to disrupt the country’s normal activity, damage its economy and even harm people.
