TerrorismTracker A definitive global terrorism database

The essential resource for tracking and analysing terrorism worldwide


TerrorismTracker records every terrorist incident and plot reported in open sources since January 2007. Updated daily, incidents and plots are geolocated, summarised, and indexed by 17 different categories for rapid and up to date research, 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.
