Cyber terrorism conference after South Korea 'cyber-attacks'

A global conference on cyber terrorism led by Swansea University is due to take place in Birmingham later, in the wake of South Korea accusing North Korean spies of a series of high-profile cyber-attacks last month.

Tens of thousands of computers malfunctioned, disrupting work at banks and television broadcasters in the south.

Experts from around the globe will be at the conference which is supported by Nato.

Dr Lee Jarvis, who lectures on terrorism and counter-terrorism and is co-director of the cyber-terrorism project at Swansea University, spoke to Bethan Rhys Roberts on BBC Radio Wales.
