hacktivist warfare

Hacktivism is a form of cyber attack carried out supposedly in support of a social cause. It has increasingly become a disguise for state-sponsored cyber attacks. It is the use of technical skills and cyber tools for digital protests and disruption to raise awareness and drive social change. 

This white paper provides a concise analysis of hacktivist warfare, focusing on the strategies and tools employed by cyber activists throughout much of the world. By examining the activities of 45+ hacktivist groups across regions such as India/SAARC, Middle East, ASEAN countries, Oceania, Europe, Brazil, North America and more, we aim to uncover their motivations, techniques, and the impact they have on established power structures.
