Cyberspace is a virtual place that has become as important as physical space for social, economic and political activities. Many nations in the world are increasing their dependency on cyberspace when they utilise Information and Communications Technology (ICT). In this digital age, the concept of cyber terrorism has emerged that is the use of cyberspace to carry out terrorist activities. Interestingly, there are many concepts of cyber terrorism provided by academics, researchers, policy makers and individuals. This paper proposes a framework describing the core components of cyber terrorism. The framework defines cyber terrorism from six perspectives: Motivation, target, method of attack, domain, action by perpetrator, and impact.
