‘Recapturing’ digital space


In order to defeat Islamic State propaganda online, it needs to be pushed to the sidelines of the dark web, Jared Cohen, director of Google Ideas, has said.

“Terrorist groups like ISIS, they operate in the dark web whether we want them to or not,” Cohen said, stressing that the group’s online activity has not been limited so far.

“What is new is that they’re operating without being pushed back in the same internet we all enjoyed. So success looks like ISIS being contained to the dark web”, the director said.”
