2021 Theme: Building Resilience Through Counter-Terror Collaboration

2021 is a significant year for the counter-terror community, marking 20 years of the fight against terror.

Threat landscape analysis and information gathering require a public and international network, but security at the point of need is reliant on the venue’s local security measures. These must encompass both physical and cyber elements, as terrorists take advantage of saturated global communications and online dependencies to­ increase their avenues of attack.

Understanding the threats we face, improving awareness, and developing integrated strategies to confront terrorism’s many forms will be key to successfully confronting old and new challenges.

"When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed."

The Chatham House Rule is not in effect by default. Speakers retain the right, however, to invoke it at the beginning of their presentation whereupon it will last for the duration of that presentation only.
