According to the Organization of American States (OAS) in its latest report on “Latin American + Caribbean Cyber Security Trends” released in June 2014, Latin America and the Caribbean have the fastest growing Internet population in the world with 147 million users in 2013 and growing 12% each year. While having more users and more network connections is a great advancement for the small islands of the Caribbean, it also represents a potential threat. As researcher Audrey Kurth Cronin points out, “insurgents and terrorist groups have effectively used the Internet to support their operations for at least a decade. The tools of the global information age have helped them with administrative tasks, coordination of operations, recruitment of potential members, and communications among adherents.”
A good example of a small island with big problems is the nation-island of Tanoa. Tanoa has a population of just over 100,000 people, an Internet penetration of 47.5%, and fixed broadband subscribers of 12.5%. In May 2015, news stories appeared in the Tanoa News Online that the Tanoan government website had been hacked by members of the notorious terrorist organization Islamic State Iraq & Syria (ISIS). When visitors logged on to the Tanoan government website, they were greeted with the following message and picture to the site: “Hacked by Morroccawolf- Islamic State” and accompanied by the picture below showing a supposed member of ISIS in the back of a pick-up truck firing a machine gun.
However, since the last Tanoan governmental website attack the government has failed to increase and improve their cybersecurity systems. The OAS has recently published a paper to the CIA raising concerns about the Island of Tanoa falling into IS control and possible plans to use Tanoa as a hub for large scale cyber-attacks on US official webpages.
IS recently constructed three radio towers on the main Island of Tanoa and is using these private radio towers to control the data moving over the Island. It is also these three towers that the report from the OAS suspects will be used to initiate the cyber-attack onto US official websites.
Two sites have been identified, Comms Alpha and Comms Bravo.
A. Enemy Forces:
IS is believed to have a strong presence in the area with constant patrols, roadblocks on all the roads leading up to the Communication sites and at Comms Bravo, they seem to be training recruits. It is unsure if they are expecting an attack on the newly established HQ, but QRF units might be on standby from remote locations on the island.
They are mostly limited to small arms in the area and are not expected to heavily mine the area due to it being in their territory.
B. Friendly Forces:
Zulu-Alpha is located at Tuvanaka Airbase with naval transport located at the forbidden village.
1) Equipment: Standard equipment.
2) Surveillance: None.
3) Ground Vehicles: 2x Polaris Unarmed.
4) Fixed Wing: None.
