- How is the US most vulnerable to such attacks?
- What governmental agencies are tasked with protecting against and responding to such attacks?
- Can law and policy change our risk level at all?
- What is the potential impact on our courts and legal systems of a cyberterrorism attack?
- How is “hacking” related to terrorism?
- Are we prepared to defend against these largely unknown threats?
- Are residents of the northeast section of the US more at risk than other areas of the country?
