Join the worldwide effort to protect the global food supply
The food and agricultural sectors of all nations are vulnerable to terrorism incidents or threats. With worldwide cooperation, collaboration, and information-sharing among representatives from governments, the private sector, and academia, the potential for agroterrorism can be reduced.
The main mission of the International Symposium on Agroterrorism (ISA) is to protect the food supply worldwide while illustrating the importance of a coordinated effort.
More than 1,000 individuals from 25 different countries have attended past ISAs, participating in break-out educational sessions and case studies, hearing world-renowned experts discuss agroterrorism, and interacting with each other.
Coming together under one roof is the first step toward working together to solve the problem.
