About this book

Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States, serious concerns were raised on domestic and international security issues. Consequently, there has been considerable interest recently in technological strategies and resources to counter acts of terrorism. In this context, this book provides a state-of-the-art survey of the most recent advances in the field of counterterrorism and open source intelligence, demonstrating how various existing as well as novel tools and techniques can be applied in combating covert terrorist networks. A particular focus will be on future challenges of open source intelligence and perspectives on how to effectively operate in order to prevent terrorist activities.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Informatics may be used to analyze open sources in the fight against terrorism. This state-of-the-art overview from an impressive group of international contributors is mandatory reading for criminologists and intelligence professionals. Many of the tools discussed have broad application to social network analysis. … I recommend this broad overview of state-of-the-art research.” (Brad Reid, ACM Computing Reviews, October, 2011)
