National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin

The US Department of Homeland Security issued an NTAS BULLETIN on January 18, 2020 which highlights the general threat of terrorism in light of current geo-political develops worldwide.  This BULLETIN is effective until March 18, 2020.  The emphasis within this bulletin in on the general threat of terrorist attacks against US interests and cyber-attacks by Iran.  The BULLETIN encourages citizens to be prepared for cyber disruptions in addition to heightening your personal safety posture.

Since 2015, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has used this Bulletin to highlight the continuing terror threat to the U.S. Homeland. The United States is engaged in a generational fight against terrorists who seek to attack the American people, our country, and our way of life. An informed, vigilant and engaged public remains one of our greatest assets to identify potential terrorists and prevent attacks.

The National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) replaces the color-coded Homeland Security Advisory System (HSAS). This system will more effectively communicate information about terrorist threats by providing timely, detailed information to the public, government agencies, first responders, airports and other transportation hubs, and the private sector.

It recognizes that Americans all share responsibility for the nation's security, and should always be aware of the heightened risk of terrorist attack in the United States and what they should do.
