Abstract: The term "cyberterrorism" has been highly prominent in major newspaper headlines since the end of the last century and, particularly, after the 9/11 attacks in New York. It is a form of terrorism that uses information and communication technologies to subject public authorities, certain individuals or groups in society and, more generally, public opinion to a climate of terror, to achieve the goals of the cyberterrorists. Cyberterrorism, either against or over the Internet, supposes a major risk in this age where computer systems are in charge of running many essential functions of society. However, tackling the major part of these crimes is complex due to the technological nature of the Internet and the international dimension of cyberterrorism, requiring a coordinated response from as many countries as possible. Within the Council of Europe important conventions have been adopted which, in their entirety, will offer possibilities to face up to this kind of criminal activity: the 2001 Convention on Cybercrime and the 2005 Convention on the Prevention of Terrorism. The adaptation of their internal legislation will provide member states adequate coverage to combat crimes linked to the use of the Internet for purposes of terrorism.
