System of automated data analysing about terroristic activity from Internet resources

Valentyn Petryk, Andrii Davydiuk


A system for automated analysis of terrorist activity data from Internet resources was created. Its use is aimed at preventing and countering terrorist acts by analyzing textual content to contain data related to terrorist activity. This activity is one of the most severely predicted and dangerous for society and the state phenomena. It is characterized by a special dynamism and multifaceted nature, advanced technical equipment, a high level of structural organization, the presence of significant financial assets, as well as the ability to adapt and modernize in the context of the main social trends of today - globalization and informatization. This confirms the existence of a real threat to the national and cybersecurity of the state. Mostly to prevent and counter-terrorist activity, organizational measures are preferred. Therefore, counteraction to terrorist activity requires qualitatively new approaches. One such approach is to analyze terrorist activity data from Internet resources. To address this challenge, the widespread use of information technology, in particular software. In this context, automated data analysis tools are analyzed. Among them are specialized systems for monitoring information space. They are characterized, first of all, by the speed that traditional search engines cannot provide; secondly, the completeness not always provided by conventional news aggregators and, thirdly, the necessary analytical tools that allow the user to generate reports on publications of a given topic over some time. As a result, the use of automated data analysis is quite effective in preventing and counteracting terrorist attacks. Therefore, a system for automated analysis of terrorist activity data from Internet resources has been proposed for the implementation of such counteraction. The advantages of using it are the convenience, in particular, the presence of a simple interface and the ability to detect signs of terrorist activity
