WASHINGTON, D.C. (NBC News) -- Following the 9/11 attacks on the United States, a commission was formed to look into the tragedy and determine ways that our country could prevent future terror plots.

Ten years after this report was released, the same group has come together again as private citizens to issue a follow-up study.

This new study comes with a serious warning, pointing to growing concerns about our national security.

The commission reiterated that many of these new threats are coming through different avenues that we haven't seen before.

"The vulnerability of our cyber systems and vast stealing of intellectual property over the internet pose a huge national security challenge," said Lee Hamilton, the 9/11 Commission Co-chair.

In addition to this, the commission has brought up their fear that the bureaucratic red tape put in place by the government creates an inability to implement necessary security measures.
