Kostadinov goes on to note that most cyberterrorism actions are generally focused on website sabotage and email blasting. In order to prove that the network breach was a terrorist attack the company would need to provide electronic evidence of these types of information warfare. Information warfare is a term often used interchangeably with cyberterrorism but provides a deeper understanding in the shift of how data has become fundamental to society. As governments, companies and people shift to the use of digital information so have the methods used to attack (Gilmer, 2001). In order to combat this aspect of terrorism, the military have adopted computer forensics as part of their defenses (Vacca & Rudolph, 2011).
Legal Studies Assignment Law is a complex mechanism that is evolving to keep pace with our ever changing society. It is a set of enforceable rules of conduct which set down guidelines for relationships between people and organisations. Law is at constant battle as society moves ahead and the law limps behind, this is largely affected by new developments in technology especially with the establishment of the cyber world.

With the development of strategic warfare the lines between war and terrorism have blurred through a gradual change in the tactics and technology used by military, paramilitary, and other fighting forces. Previous to WWI war was a conventional manner, with large armies fighting over a battle-ground. In the same respect, until the early 1900’s terrorism was a human-to-human contact matter, with terrorists shooting, or stabbing their targets at close proximity. With the development of strategic weapons such as, planes, gun-mounted boats, submarines, and bombs of various forms, a change in the tactics used by terrorists and militaries have taken a strategic turn, breeding new similarities between the actions of the State and that of the Terrorist. Terrorism can be defined as, ‘The unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.’ (FBI).

New methods of policing, protection and regulating have been introduced, making crimes much harder to commit – Therefore, the crimes have been altered to suit the new changes. Another reason as to why crime hasn’t changed to an extremity over the past 200 years is because the same crimes can now be committed via new technology.

For instance, impersonating a person in order to steal a substantial amount of money from them has been a common crime for hundreds of years.

We as a people are heavily influenced by the media and multimedia entities such as television, music, film/cinema, video games, the press, and of course the internet which is the fastest tool used in spreading information worldwide.

The Role of Pornography in the Etiology of Sexual Aggression provides a more accurate article citing both studies supporting its claims as well as studies discounting them.
