100 Days Later: Covid-19: Implications for Managing Terrorism and Asymmetric Threats [open pdf - 0B]
From the Background: "As part of our ongoing collaboration, the teams from START [National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism] and CHC Global have held a series of managed discussions to consider the potential impacts of Covid-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] on terrorism and asymmetric threats. We have considered the implications for governments, businesses and individual citizens, with a focus on how terrorism risks might be evolving. It is likely that the current uncertainty is having a range of impacts on threat actors, but it is too early to determine any absolute truths regarding changes to the global terrorism risk profile. However, it is possible to look more broadly at what this event can tell us about how organizations might orient to risks which sit in the higher frequency - higher impact (the 'upper right') quadrant of the risk register - including some forms of terrorism. Since the first reported case outside China on January 13th, our views have been informed by validated open-source reporting. Just over 100 days later, this document summarizes the record of those discussions."
