VIEW LARGER COVER

In December 2020, Congress passed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, which includes a request for a National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine effort to address the adequacy of strategies to prevent, counter, and respond to weapons of mass destruction (WMD) terrorism, and identify technical, policy, and resource gaps. The assessment encompasses both state-sponsored and non-state actor terrorism and acquisition or misuse of technologies, materials, and critical expertise involved in conducting WMD attacks. In response to this request, the National Academies held a virtual workshop on July 25, 26, and 27, 2022, focusing on attribution, threats of mis- and disinformation campaigns, and policy and programmatic gaps critical for countering biological terrorism. This Proceedings of a Workshop-in Brief provides a summary of the topics addressed at the workshop.
