Fighting for Cyber Supremacy in an Age of Extremism

Haroon K. Ullah

Wednesday, August 29, 2018
5:30 – 7:30 pm

Dr. Ullah asks if we know that “the hottest social media star in the mid east is not an actor or sports star but a radical Saudi cleric with 19 million followers”.
This powerful figure has gone virtually unnoticed in Western media. Why?


Social media has dominated the discourse of political events in the Muslim world — from the Arab Spring and its aftermath, to ISIS’s online recruitment. Yet the roles of social media in these events and the use of the dark web, hacking, and digital attacks have received little attention.In fact, Ullah argues most people in the West  are not attuned to how social media can be used to manipulate thinking and promote extremism.

In his book, Haroon goes on to show how political parties, corporations, and governments have learned to exploit digital tools to target and mobilize audiences, to ultimately achieve power and status.

He believes its ability to persuade is so powerful that he even asks if we need a new “Manhattan Project” to launch an effort to counter social media’s power to manipulate people's thinking, and promote terror and extremism.
