Designated Terrorist Entities
SITE’s Jihadist Threat service gives government, commercial, academic, and other institutions access to real-time reports and analysis of material distributed by jihadi terrorist groups and their supporters worldwide. This includes primary source material (videos, statements, speeches, claims of attacks, manuals, magazines and other propaganda) as well as commentary from individuals on social media platforms, including calls for recruitment, incitements, and threats.
Groups covered include ISIS and al-Qaeda, as well as their respective branches in the Middle East, Africa, Central and East Asia. Also included are Taliban groups in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and aligned Syrian militant factions.
SITE also publishes unique periodic reports on jihadist threats via its inSITE report series:
The Islamic State
Weekly report tracking, analyzing, and summarizing ISIS attacks, active locations, strategies, and trends around the world. Assesses the group’s propaganda campaigns, global reach, and strength of its various provincial divisions (as well as other aligned military presences across different regions). Also covers ISIS-linked media groups and supporters’ social media campaigns, cyber operations, and incitements.
Monthly report covering al-Qaeda affiliates’ attack claims and suicide operations—including those by the Shabaab al-Mujahideen Movement, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS), and Nusrat al-Islam wal Muslimeen (NIM). Also covers activity by al-Qaeda-aligned organizations in Syria, Kashmir, and other locations, as well as content and activity by pro-al-Qaeda media groups and individuals online.
Designed to help law enforcement and targeted organizations mitigate and respond to emerging threats and prevent hate crimes, while also informing policy makers and other stakeholder entities of emerging developments and trends.
Provides early warning and threat analysis, with immediate reporting on claims of attack, threats, announcements, communiques, and chatter on forums and websites. Tracks online communications of white supremacists, militia groups, anarchist groups, eco-terrorists, and other politically motivated extremists in North America, South America, Europe, and South Africa.
Updates provided as part of the service also give crucial context to extremist activity, including regional/global events, political developments, emerging social/political movements, and other variables.
Technology and Terrorism
Designed for ICT companies and regulating agencies aimed at preventing and responding to jihadist and terrorist use of online platforms, as well as public and private institutions targeted by cyber-attacks.
Dispatches expose how jihadists and terrorists use ICT—social media platforms, apps, mobile devices, the Dark Web, etc.—for planning, inciting, financing, recruiting, and cyberwarfare.
Subject Specific Services
To meet the needs of different sectors and fields of study, SITE offers services tailored toward specific subjects and purposes:
Terrorism and Finance
Daily alerts and critical analysis of terrorist activity, including threats to banks, financial services, & corporate entities.
Key methods by which terrorist groups carry out money-laundering activity, and transfer and receive funds.
Tracking & assessment of economically motivated campaigns promoting attacks or sabotage on financial institutions and businesses.
Energy and Critical Infrastructure
Alerts and analytical reports on terrorist threats to transportation, telecommunications, public heath, agriculture, and other vital services.
Updates on global trends and terrorist activities in energy-producing areas, with special region-focused reports covering groups such as ISIS and al-Qaeda in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, as well as eco-extremist and far-left groups in the Americas and Europe.
Reports using official communiques, online chatter, international media sources, and existing SITE research to provide political, geopolitical, and ideological factors motivating such threats and attacks.
Bioterrorism and Public Health
The COVID-19 pandemic is reshaping the ways jihadi, far-right, and other terrorist communities seek to carry out attacks. Healthcare facilities, the food industry, and other civilian entities have now become new targets of large terrorist groups, both domestically and internationally.
This crisis has brought forth reports of food contamination by infected individuals, deliberate exposure of law enforcement and healthcare personnel, and attacks against religious and educational institutions.
