As part of IPAG’s continued commitment to raise awareness and promote policies and measures against the risks and threat in the cyber space, the book makes positive contribution towards dissemination of knowledge and constructive engagement with the policymakers, practitioners, and experts towards tackling this global phenomenon. This volume is a compendium of articles from scholars, academics, and industry professionals from all over the world with expertise in important areas like cyber security, online & offline radicalization, social media platforms, regulatory & compliance issues, international best practices, data privacy & security etc.

Some of the issues addressed in the book are rising radicalization with the advent of social media & the internet, challenges & responses to intelligence & security ecosystem in the digital age, online self-radicalization and echo chambers. The volume also sheds lights on the response mechanisms for countering the threats of radicalization and cyber security and how various governmental and private organizations can cooperate, coordinate with as well as complement each other in addressing these common challenges.
