3 Things to Expect from the Anonymous Cyber War against Isis, According to Arthur Goldstuck

Tech-Savvy ParentingArthur Goldstuck, MD of World Wide Worx and co-author of Tech-Savvy Parenting: A Guide to Raising Safe Children in a Digital World, spoke to IT Web recently about hacktivist group Anonymous declaring cyber war on ISIS.

Anonymous announced their move in a video released on Sunday night, and according to Goldstuck: “Collective cheers were heard around the world.”

Goldstuck says there are three things we can expect to come out of Anonymous attacks:

  • 1. Tremendous vigilance of Web sites created by ISIS and sustained attacks on them.
  • 2. Attempts to compromise ISIS’ anonymity.
  • 3. A divergence of ISIS resources as the group will have to invest more in cyber security to keep Anonymous out.

Goldstuck says Anonymous attacks are specifically targeted, with less chance of collateral damage.

“The video was very symbolically powerful because it used the same techniques as ISIS. People do not realise how technology- and Internet-savvy ISIS is. Anonymous has met them on their battleground with this video.

“The terrorist group is powerless to retaliate as Anonymous are what they are: anonymous,” says Goldstuck.
