Terrorists seek to destroy, incapacitate, or exploit critical infrastructure and key resources, threaten national security, inflict mass causalities, weaken economies, and damage public morale and confidence. San Francisco has a higher risk for a terrorist incident than other small urban areas due to its high-profile national image, and the large number of tourists who visit our city each year.

Quick Tip:

  • If you see something, say something. Call 9-1-1 or find a police officer if you see something suspicious.

Cyber Terrorism
Cyberterrorism is a premeditated, politically-motivated attack against information, computer systems, computer programs, and data. 

Quick Tip:

  • Create tough passwords for hackers to crack, don't reuse your passwords across multiple sites, and change your passwords regularly.
