03 Apr Interview with Matteo Bonfanti and Myriam Dunn Cavelty (Center for Security Studies, ETH Zurich)

Matteo Bonfanti and Myriam Dunn Cavelty from the Center for Security Studies (CSS, ETH-Zurich) and members of the Takedown project consortium, were interviewed for the magazine “EU grants access – Science Stories”. In this interview Matteo Bonfanti talks about cyber terrorism and its danger, and how the TAKEDOWN project approaches these issues. According to Bonfanti, “the motivations for cyber attacks are very diverse and depend on the objectives of the corresponding individuals or groups. These objectives may be of financial or propagandistic nature, some perpetrators merely wish to scare people or interrupt their communal life. We collect data on cyber crime and cyber terrorism in order to understand the various phenomena as much as possible”.
