With ISIS and international extremists dominating the international news coverage, the threat of terrorism is at the forefront of Americans’ minds. In light of these developments, the Bipartisan Policy Center released a new threat assessment on September 23, authored by Peter Bergen, a member of BPC’s Homeland Security Project.

The report examines threats from ISIS, Al-Qaeda and other jihadist groups, cybersecurity concerns, and drone strikes and drone proliferation. It is the second report in an annual series by BPC’s Homeland Security Project, which is led by former 9/11 Commission co-chairs Tom Kean and Lee Hamilton.

The event featured a discussion about the contents of the new assessment with the authors and terrorism experts.
