Abstract: In 2012 members of the Cyberterrorism Project conducted a survey of researchers on cyberterrorism. A total of 118 responses were received, from researchers working in 24 countries across six continents. The findings were published in a report and series of four journal articles, listed below, examining understandings of cyberterrorism, assessments of the threat it poses, whether it can be perpetrated by states and the wider cyber lexicon. Members of the project team also presented the findings to numerous non-academic stakeholders, including NATO COE-DAT, UNICRI, and the European Defence Agency. In 2017 we ran the survey again – “five years on” – to investigate how opinions had changed (if at all): 12 questions remained the same as the 2012 survey; two questions were reformulated; and four new questions were posed. A total of 120 complete responses and four partial responses were received, from researchers working in 30 countries across five continents. This report summarizes our initial findings.
