With ISIS and international extremists dominating news coverage, the threat of terrorism is at the forefront of Americans’ minds. In the midst of these developments, the Bipartisan Policy Center’s (BPC) Homeland Security Project will release a new threat assessment, authored by Peter Bergen, a member of BPC’s Homeland Security Project.

The report will examine 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 will feature a discussion about the contents of the new assessment with the author and terrorism experts.
