About the webinar:
The extremist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba was battle hardened in the mountains of Afghanistan and Kashmir. In November of 2008 the group leapt from relative obscurity to international prominence with a brazen assault on the Indian city of Mumbai. This case-study-based presentation will examine the formation and motivation of the group, and analyze the threat posed by such transnational terrorist organizations. It includes a specific review and analysis of the 2008 attacks, and examines the resulting implications for international security, counterterrorism, and law-enforcement professionals.

  • Learn the formative process for a transnational criminal/extremist organization.
  • Recognize pre-operational traits and tactics utilized by such groups.
  • Review the real-life events that transpired in an attack on a major metropolis.
