Understanding and Mitigating Complex Coordinated Terrorist Attacks

September 14, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT


In the wake of the Mumbai attack in November 2008, there was a concerted effort to prepare for and respond to Complex Coordinated Terrorist Attacks (CCTA). However, in the intervening years, focus on these low probability – high impact events has diminished. This presentation seeks to re-focus some attention on CCTA for security professionals and upper-level management. It provides a definition but more critically it discusses how and why terrorist groups utilize them and what are effective risk and crisis management strategies. In 2020, terrorists targeted government buildings, houses of worship, and financial institutions. Moreover, terrorism’s transnational nature means that knowledge is being transferred among groups accelerating their capability.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Understand and recognize the risks and characteristics of a CCTA and its potential impact to your organization
  • Develop an effective risk and crisis management strategy emerging from the analysis of existing CCTA cases
  • Raise awareness among security professionals that these low probability – high impact events are a risk that should not be overlooked.
