  • Portland State University’s Viking Pavilion 930 Southwest Hall Street Portland, OR, 97201 United States (map)

The U.S. Secret Service and the DHS-Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) invite you to attend a FREE USSS National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) Workshop on Individuals Exhibiting Concerning Behavior.

Date: October 23, 2019

Time: 8:15 AM – 12:30 PM (doors open 7:30 a.m.)

Location: Portland State University’s Viking Pavilion, 930 SW Hall Street




This training will describe how a comprehensive threat assessment program can help to prevent mass shootings, school shootings, workplace violence, and other forms of targeted violence that impact communities across the United States. Included is an overview of Secret Service methodologies for preventing assassinations, and a description of how this approach can be adapted to prevent other forms of targeted violence.


All content is based on the operational research conducted by the Secret Service’s National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC), and will highlight the proactive approach of identifying, assessing, and managing individuals exhibiting concerning behavior.  I want to bring to your attentions that this NTAC workshop will not be returning to Oregon for an extended period of time.


This is NOT training on active shooter response.
