Learn about current global trends in extremism and the impact on the security profession.

As with so much else, the COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the intersectionality between extremist threats, exponentially increasing their potency. The rise of these threats experienced in the U.S. prior to the pandemic, particularly by right wing extremists and nationalists or separatists, are increasingly mainstream and increasingly global. There is evidence that individuals within these groups are converging with conspiracy groups such as Q-Anon, science-deniers, and anti-vaxers, who are also gaining traction in the mainstream. The mainstreaming and greater prevalence of extremism suggests a need to increase the focus on behavioral threat assessment and workplace bystander programs, the security literacy of the workforce generally, and enhance public and private community partnerships.
