HJS REPORT LAUNCH: “TERROR IN THE DARK – HOW TERRORISTS USE ENCRYPTION, THE DARKNET AND CRYPTOCURRENCIES”

18 April @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Following the five terror incidents on British soil in 2017, the Government has paid more attention to the presence of online extremism. But is this enough?

Using research from terrorist and criminal case studies, Darknet cryptomarkets, and the open-source, report author Nikita Malik will explain how we must wake up to the dangers of the Darknet – portions of the internet that are not available to the public, without dedicated expertise. The findings, while preliminary, present an interesting conundrum: while the Darknet is used to protect privacy advocates, whistle-blowers, and human rights activities, it also provides a dangerous platform for those engaging in illicit activities by granting them anonymity through encryption. Recommendations in the report focus on fostering human intelligence and capacity building in this area, and suggest that new UK regulation should be created to audit the internet.

By kind invitation of Vicky Ford MP, The Henry Jackson Society is pleased to invite you to an event with our Director of CRT, Nikita Malik who will outline recommendations that seek to ensure that the benefits of technologies are not used to the advantage of criminals and terrorists.

Nikita Malik is the Director of the Centre for the Response to Radicalisation and Terrorism (CRT) at the Henry Jackson Society. She has published several ground-breaking reports backed and endorsed by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Child Soldiers, Solidarity for Refugees, and Child to Child. Malik has presented findings and evidence to EU and UK Parliament, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), the Department of State (DoS), the EU Radicalisation Awareness Network (RAN), and the United Nations. Nikita grew up in the Middle East and worked in Jordan from 2010 to 2014, conducting projects in Iraq, Palestine, and Syria. In 2018 Malik was honoured by Forbes Magazine as a 30 under 30: an influencer in law and policy.
