The incidence of bioterrorism for contemporary society

Terrorism is the scourge of modern society, representing a major threat to individual, national and also international / global security.

A mode of action in this context, with a particularly high level of threat is represented by the use of biological agents / pathogens, to trigger such attacks – bioterrorism.

Although, to date, bioterrorist attacks are rather scarce, lacking the ability to generate major effects for the targeted populations, the potential of this type of attack induces compulsory need, at national / international level, to insure the capacity to generate an appropriate response – prevention / control.

Keywords: Bioterorism, pathogens, terrorism, biotechnology, legislation.
