Diplomacy in Action

Analyzing the Threat

Through our Office of Intelligence and Threat Analysis, DS monitors and analyzes intelligence on terrorist activities and threats directed against Americans and U.S. diplomatic facilities overseas, as well as threats against the Secretary of State, senior U.S. officials, visiting foreign dignitaries, resident foreign diplomats, and foreign missions in the United States for which DS has a protective security responsibility. In an average year, DS receives over 1,000 threats and incidents against U.S. interests overseas.

In support of operational and policy decisionmaking by senior Department officials, DS provides real-time assessments and longer term evaluations on threats to U.S. interests from terrorism, political violence, and crime.
