WASHINGTON, DC / ACCESSWIRE / October 6, 2021 / The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) marks the 18th annual National Cybersecurity Awareness Month by highlighting its research from the Cyber & Jihad Lab (CJL) project.

Since 2007, the MEMRI CJL has been tracking, translating, and researching cyber jihad originating from the Middle East, Iran, South Asia, and North and West Africa, as well as from the West. Consistently on the forefront of research into terrorist use of cryptocurrency, encryption use, social media tracking, drone technology, and hacktivism, the project works with Capitol Hill, the Department of Justice, and other government agencies, as well as with tech companies and technology industry leaders.

With a focus on innovating and experimenting with possible solutions for stopping cyber jihad, the CJL works to advance legislation and initiatives on the federal and state level, supporting the drafting and implementation of measures that will serve as precedents for further action. It works with leaders in business, law enforcement, and academia, and with families of terror victims to craft and support efforts and solutions to combat cyber jihad. The project also recruits and works with tech industry leaders to craft and support solutions.

The CJL website features all CJL research on these issues as well as a section showcasing the latest analysis reports by MEMRI’s top experts.

CJL research has been frequently cited in The New York Times, Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, CNN, WIRED, Foreign Policy, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, Military Times, Politico, Newsweek, Axios, VICE, Forbes, MarketWatch, The Cipher Brief, PYMTS, AMBCrypto, Canaltech Hipertextual, The Block, Fox News, Washington Examiner, Washington Times, The Hill, New York Post, VOA News, Sydney Morning Herald, France24, National Post, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail, The Sun, and South China Morning Post, among other leading media.
