Terrorists and violent extremists can and do exploit the internet for their own means. This can range from radicalisation and recruitment to planning a terrorist attack. This represents a serious risk to vulnerable individuals using the internet.
Examples of illegal material include:
- Speeches or essays calling for racial or religious violence
- Videos of terrorism or racial or religious violence with messages of ‘glorification’ or praise for the attackers
- Chat forums with postings calling for people to commit acts of terrorism or violent extremism
- Messages intended to stir up hatred against any religious or ethnic group
