CACI International Inc, The Center for Security Policy, and the Institute for the Study of War are pleased to announce our upcoming symposium: Asymmetric Threats in an Era of Great Power Competition.

The twelfth symposium in the Asymmetric Threat Symposia series addresses challenges America must meet, and vulnerabilities America must fix. Global threats to the United States and its allies have expanded in prevalence, complexity, sophistication, deniability, speed, and often in lethality. Many of these threats are directly aimed at America’s citizenry and institutions and not just the Government and the military forces that defend the nation. For example, we are arguably in a cyber war that is aimed at the whole of our society. And it will be a long war.

China and Russia focus on exploiting America’s vulnerabilities to tip the strategic advantage in their favor. It is not just the great power competitors pressing for advantage and exploiting potential vulnerabilities. It is also terrorist groups and nations such as Iran and North Korea that are engaged in weakening America and our allies.

This non-partisan, not-for-profit event is the twelfth symposium in our thought leadership series furthering the evolving national security discourse put forth by government, industry, and the private sector. Please join us for what promises to be an enlightening, candid, and relevant discussion.
