The Global Terrorism Methodologies and Trends report (GTMT) provides you with timely open source intelligence designed to rapidly cross organizational boundaries.
Predicated on attack prevention, this newsletter-with-analytics keeps you informed of the evolving threats and vulnerabilities associated with globalized terrorism, insurgencies and other forms of asymmetric warfare. At its core, GTMT serves as a collaborative clue engine—aggregately exposing transnational terror links, tradecraft, adaptations and scope of operations. The report’s collection of incidents and analysis provides powerful insight into how terrorists and their partners operate, what they are doing now, who they are likely working with, how and where tactics are being cross-fertilized, what tradecraft they are likely to employ in the future and what security countermeasures may become an organizational or personal necessity.
The report’s collection of incidents and analysis provides powerful insight into:
- How terrorists and their partners operate
- What they are doing right now
- Who they are likely working with
- How and where tactics are being cross-fertilized
- What tradecraft they are likely to employ in the future
- What security countermeasures may become an organizational or personal necessity
Data collection includes:
- Terrorist and related criminal activities reported by international and domestic news services
- Supplemental reports, studies, bulletins, briefings, etc.
- Networked sources
Events are assessed and tallied by articles that include terrorist attacks, failed attempts, interrupted preparations and other recognizable terror-syndicate methodologies—including those techniques that have the potential to morph into variant threats.
Analysis is deliberately apolitical, plain spoken, vulnerability-oriented, aggregate in value and occasionally provocative.
We attempt to expose terrorist “best practices” wherever possible and are not afraid to toss hypothetical questions out to the reader when information is inconclusive or we are not certain of a pattern’s meaning.
