Acting Director of #NCTC, Russ Travers, visits #GTTAC

DSG President Marcia Cohen and NCTC acting director Russel Travers

The #GTTAC team was excited to host Russel Travers, acting director of the National Counterterrorism Center, at George Mason University for a discussion on the complexities and challenges of open source research, the history of the NCTC, and the history of initiatives to track global terrorism incidents and trends. The roots of the project we are doing for the Department of State trace back to the mid 2000’s where Mr. Travers was at NCTC standing up the first centralized collection of terrorism incident data from open source materials.
