Abstract

The chapter focuses on security in the digital society (security, web and terrorism, national security and Intelligence and privacy and security). In fact the novelty of global risks and most recent forms of security threats lies primarily in their interwoven nature. If on the one hand globalisation is able to enlarge the horizons and scope of technology, business, politics and information, on the other hand it produces information/communication redundancy, precariousness, contamination, terrorism and social insecurity. Although scientific development and technological progress represent an unquestionable opportunity for growth, they still tend to produce «high consequence global risks» (Giddens, 1994: 132), due to their incredible speed that seems to exclude any form of ruling.
