There are some key reasons that drive the need for increased security interventions for terror. ASI Security is aware of these reasons and offers the leading edge security solutions needed. Here are the reasons we’re referring to, and why we are uniquely equipped to fill this need.
Terror Watchlist Expansion
The U.S. government’s Terrorist Screening Dataset (TSDS), also known as the “terror watchlist,” has expanded in recent years. Originally, the TSDS database only contained sensitive information on known or suspected terrorists (KSTs). However, it has evolved over the last decade. Now, the TSDS database also includes the identities of individuals who represent a potential threat to the United States, including known affiliates of watchlisted individuals.
Border Encounters of Watchlisted Individuals
In recent years, there has been a reported uptick in border crossings by people on the TSDS watchlist. According to published U.S. Customs and Border Patrol data, there were 67 individuals on the watchlist apprehended at the southern U.S. border in fiscal year 2022 — and in fiscal year 2023 to date, 32 attempted crossings by individuals on the watchlist have been intercepted so far. With that in mind, there is a deep need for security solutions that address these border crossing attempts by watchlisted individuals.
Forthcoming FTO Legislation
The kidnapping of four American citizens in early March has prompted the announcement of forthcoming federal legislation that would designate drug cartels near the southern U.S. border as Foreign Terror Organizations (FTOs). If these narco-terror syndicates eventually receive the FTO designation, the military personnel who will encounter them will be in need of high quality security solutions ranging from basic supplies to powerful technology.
