#uOttSET Morning Brief

Threat in the time of Pandemic

"The groups and actions that pose the greatest threat to public safety and national security as the focus is on tackling COVID-19."

COVID-19 has locked down much of the world. Moving from China, through Europe and on to the North American continent. 

Efforts to contain the novel COVID-19 coronavirus have seen the quarantine measures impact and in many cases vastly reduce workplace staff. Could this reduction in work force strength extend to agencies tasked with keeping Canadians safe from terrorism and violent extremism?

What are the leading experts identifying as potential opportunities under these new circumstances? What is the data on terrorist activity since the onset of the pandemic and how does this compare with a 'normal' time period? Drawing on expert insights and data gathered to date this session explores the likely shape of the security and threat landscape for the weeks and months to come.
