Objective 6: Policy Shaping, Training and Public Engagement

This objective will explore how policy, training and public engagement can be undertaken within the PROPHETS project and how such activities may both highlight and reduce the likelihood of online behavioural radicalisation taking place. This objective will contain the following activities:

  • Train the Trainers: As part of WP7, PROPHETS will actively engage in training and disseminating educational and awareness packages on several cyber-radicalisation concerns towards organised, serious crime and terrorism.
  • OSINT Training Package: In addition to the tools and tradecraft that will be of immediate use from the PROPHETS project, a significant portion of research will be spent on establishing strategic, tactical and operational policy roadmaps.
  • Policy Making and Best Practice Roadmap: The Policy Making Toolkit will utilise a smart system to categorise the cyber concerns through different applicable lenses, such as they facet of crime, ist aims and objectives, modus operandi, as well as the behavioural profiling statistics surrounding it. This approach will be used to increase the transparency of understanding as well as spreading a broader inter-agency approach to dealing with online behavioural radicalisation actions and enabling factors that contribute to cybercrime and cyberterrorism.
