"There are several ways that terrorist tactics are likely to evolve in the coming decades: 1)Terrorists may favor attack methods that exploit perceived vulnerabilities, such as adopting active shooter tactics and finding new methods of concealing dangerous materials 2) Terrorists will continue to pursue opportunities to inflict mass casualties 3) The nature of the threat from international Islamic terrorist groups is likely to change, particularly considering the Arab Spring and death of Osama bin Laden 4) Homegrown violent extremism will likely continue to emerge as a significant threat".
