The recent shooting at a supermarket in Buffalo in the US, which left ten people dead, demonstrates the increasing danger posed by online radicalisation. The shooting follows similar style attacks from violent right wing extremists (VRWE), such as Pittsburgh, Christchurch and Halle.
The shooting reinforces the need to continue to update our understanding of the digital ecosystem, the behaviour of young people online, the innovations in digital technology, and the exploitation of the internet by terrorists and violent extremists.
In this issue of the RAN Practitioners Update, we revisit what we know about the digital environment. We also take a look at events closer to home – at how the war in Ukraine might be impacting the P/CVE environment – through the latest edition of the RAN Spotlight magazine.
