The Biden Administration’s New Strategy for Countering WMD Terrorism

  • 11AM EST

Join us as White House Assistant to the President for Homeland Security Dr. Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall and other senior U.S. officials discuss the Biden administration’s new strategy to counter weapons of mass destruction terrorism and advance nuclear and radiological security.

The strategy establishes new U.S. efforts to prevent non-state actors from acquiring weapons of mass destruction, while refreshing long-standing approaches to secure and reduce weapons usable materials areas that remain critical to U.S. and international security. Risks, technologies, and strategies are evolving in global efforts to secure, reduce, and eliminate nuclear and radiological materials, and the Biden administration will outline its new plan to address these threats.

Dr. Sherwood-Randall will make opening remarks, followed by a discussion with senior representatives from the U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, moderated by NTI Co-Chair and CEO Ernest J. Moniz.
