Bogel and Libert on Data Terrorism - Hungarian news portal reports: Islamic State will probably become active in the digital space. According to Gyorgy Bogel, professor of management at CEU’s Business School, the target of terrorism in the future will be data stored in huge server houses.

Timothy Libert, fellow at CEU’s Center for Media, Data and Society (CMDS) and doctoral student at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania, argued  in his lecture at CEU on November 17th entitled “Web Tracking with Chinese Characteristics: Exploring the Emerging Surveillance Market in China” that information technology is not becoming more transparent, nor our personal data storage more safe. The researcher, whose research focus is on privacy-compromising information flows on websites, particularly the use of third-party HTTP requests, highlighted that terrorists, governments and firms can easily profit from our personal data.
