The current challenge of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic is sapping our attention from prevailing security risks such as global terrorism which have by no means gone away. In fact, in bringing economies and societies to their knees, the current pandemic must be assumed to provide terrorist groups with useful intelligence and insight into where our immediate weaknesses lie.
At the same time, terrorists are not the only threat actors operating in our security space – criminals and social dissenters also harm our well-being. They exploit similar disruptive technological innovations to achieve their respective ends. These considerations amount to an increasingly complex and rapidly evolving landscape. Clearly then, our doctrines and response capabilities must catch up to mitigate the impact of these security risks to the extent that allows governments, businesses and societies to bounce back as quickly as possible.
Join in this exclusive ASIS webinar to learn more about an update and short-term forecast on the security risk landscape in terms of the threats and vulnerabilities, with an emphasis on terrorism.
