The Bottom Line Up Front

Disrupting the financial and logistical networks that enable violent extremist organizations.

Violent extremist organizations that are politically, ethnically, or religiously-motivated threaten human and international security worldwide. But terrorist groups don’t exist in a vacuum – they require access to arms, sensitive technology, and revenue to sustain themselves.

C4ADS focuses on how terrorist organizations leverage global commercial networks within their mechanisms of finance, coordination, and procurement. Using publicly available information, we map and disrupt these networks. Through partnerships with international organizations and law enforcement, we work to de-risk the global economy and ultimately end the supply chains of armed violence.
