ISIS and its off-shoots are driving a global surge of attacks. And unlike previous groups who built global networks of operatives, ISIS utilizes extreme violence coupled with social media and internet based communications to motivate independent operators to carry out attacks. The attacks in San Bernardino are a good example of this threat and how it can impact a place of work.
Experts also fret about the continued threat of a large scale terrorist attack that uses a weapon of mass destruction against a global population center. In addition, while ISIS is currently the most active group perpetrating attacks, many other Islamic extremists pose a grave danger to people and businesses across the globe.
