Fadia, a widely recognized computer security guru and cyber terrorism 
expert said cyber terrorism is more dangerous than any other form of 
terrorism.

According to him, many countries these days rely heavily on their 
computers and related technology to carry out daily activities. He said 
cyber terrorism can involve attacks on computers that can make them 
inaccessible for weeks and intrusions into unauthorized sensitive 
personal data such as the bank accounts.

Fadia gave the example of a heavily technology-dependent eastern 
European country - Estonia, who recently implored NATO to take a 
position against cyber terrorism after accusing Russia of cyber 
terrorism against them. "Estonia is a small country, but imagine if it 
was India. The situation is unimaginable," he said.

Even though India is a highly developed nation, police and security 
agencies are ill equipped. According to Fadia, cyber cops of various 
state police departments are not aware of even basics of cyber security 
and cited an example of a constable said to have enquired where the 
Internet building is located.
