Brain Wars: Simple Cyber Terrorism Life Hacks for Everyday People

Explicitly designing cyberterrorist attacks that bypass physical harm to individuals and focus on their psychological aspects are here to stay. These types of cyberattacks are deemed as less harmful types of cyberattacks or cybercrime as opposed to non-lethal cyberterrorism. The perception of disruption associated with these types of cyberattacks is much lower than cyberterrorism attacks resulting in actual physical damage. Exploiting human vulnerabilities is easier than exploiting system vulnerabilities and the potential outcome of such cyberattacks is grossly underestimated. Humans are the critical infrastructure of society and the effects of phycological disruption can outweigh the effects of physical harm.
