Understanding Cyberterrorism: The Ardit Ferizi Case

Posted on in Presentations

In 2016, Ardit Ferizi was convicted in the first successful arrest and prosecution of cyberterrorism. The FBI will use the Ferizi case to illustrate the cyberterrorism threat, present the current outlook on cyberterrorism, and demonstrate how government, private sector and international cooperation can successfully mitigate the threat and bring criminals to justice.

Learning Objectives:
1: Understand how cyberterrorism is currently defined by law enforcement.
2: Understand how the private sector positively contributes to investigations.
3: Understand how law enforcement mitigates threats through prosecution.
