What is TerrorismTracker

TerrorismTracker is a comprehensive database that records every terrorist incident and plot reported in open sources since January 2007. These are all researched by specialists and subject to robust quality control to avoid the errors and inaccuracies inherent in automated data scraping.

Updated daily, incidents and plots are geolocated, summarised and indexed by 17 different categories to provide topic data and structured analysis.


Current and comprehensive

TerrorismTracker is updated seven days a week by research analysts using a variety of tools and a highly defined methodology to ensure current and comprehensive coverage.

Clean and structured data

Events are only included in the dataset that comply with a specific definition of terrorism that broadly aligns with those used across the insurance industry and major jurisdictions.

Quality assurance

TerrorismTracker data is manually researched and populated. All incidents and plots are researched by specialists and subject to robust quality control, avoiding the errors and inaccuracies inherent in automated data scraping.

Key Features of TerrorismTracker

TerrorismTracker data is available through an API, enabling users to build custom feeds into their preferred tools and interfaces. Designed for use in GSOCs, geospatial and analytic tools, the API delivers current and comprehensive data on terrorist activity.


The TerrorismTracker portal provides in-platform access to the database with mapping and analytics and includes open-source analysis and news on terrorist activity and risks, group profiles and insights into terrorist chatter and propaganda.
