ABSTRACT

Many countries have enacted anti-terrorism law due to Paris terror attack in November 2015. In the meantime, there have been a lot of debates regarding national security and civil rights. Most anti-terrorism laws allow intelligence agencies to collect personal information extensively. Furthermore, companies are obliged by those laws to cooperate with intelligence agencies in the process. Korean government and the ruling party have participated in this global movement by enacting Anti-terrorism Act, and then are trying to pass the bill against cyber-terrorism. Until recently, terrorism has been a associated with physical acts of violence and crime. However, cyber-terrorism is a new form of terrorism, which means any premeditated, politically motivated attack against information, computer systems, computer programs, and data which results in violence against non-combatant targets by sub-national groups or clandestine agents. Since many critical infrastructure, government institutions, or media organizations are connected by the computer network, it is likely to cause severe damage to the country. In this paper, the concept of cyber-terrorism is defined by comparison with the similar concepts and the types of cyber-terrorism are classified. Thereafter, this paper reviews related legislations of other countries(such as United States or United Kingdom) and the Korean legislative bill against cyber-terrorism. Ultimately, this paper suggests improvement direction of the legislation against cyber-terrorism.
