Center for Security Policy Tackles Biodefense in New Book

The Washington, D.C.-based Center for Security Policy has published a book about the danger of biological threats and to explain what lessons can the U.S. learn from the coronavirus pandemic to build up the country's biodefense strategy.

In the book, titled "Defending Against Biothreats," 11 national security experts offer their perspectives on the spread of COVID-19 to help government leaders beef up measures to address natural and man-made biothreats.

Frank Gaffney, a former Department of Defense official, established the center in 1988 to explore policies, resources and actions that are relevant to national security.
