Technology in the Fight Against Terrorism
The United States tends to be on the leading edge with technology and uses it in unique ways to meet challenges that face the country. Specifically, technology has proven to be very effective in the war on terrorism but it also comes with concerns. Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 15 in Martin (2016). Martin’s discussion on the future of terrorism and the role technology plays to keep us safe is interesting as technology can be a two-edged sword. It can be useful in law enforcement, business, and education, for example; on the other hand, technology can potentially inflict harm on society. Further, it can be used by the terrorists as much as it can be used by the government. In fact, Martin (2016) looks at this issue from the perspective of terrorists’ use of technology. He also points out that government agencies use technology very effectively for electronic surveillance.
For this discussion, examine how government agencies use technology to counter terrorism. Additionally, examine how terrorist groups use technology to project terror. Address a minimum of two of the following elements posed by Martin (2016, p. 464) for your initial post:
Evaluate the threat from abuses of new technologies.
Assess how new technologies should be regulated.
Determine whether it is necessary to sacrifice freedoms to protect national security and to ensure the long-term viability of civil liberty.
Evaluate whether the same protocols should be used for domestic electronic surveillance and foreign surveillance.
Assess the likelihood that new surveillance technologies will be used as tools of repression by authoritarian regimes in the near future.
Your initial post must be a minimum of 400 words in length. Support your post with examples from required materials, scholarly sources, or official government sources. Use APA formatting as outlined in the UAGC Writing Center to cite your sources in-text as well as at the end of your post.
