Over the course of the last several months ISIS has suffered severe military setbacks in both Iraq and Syria with the loss of territory, and the capture of its strongholds. Among the items captured in ISIS headquarters are laptop computers and cell phones that contain a treasure trove of information.
This information includes lists of previously unknown ISIS operatives around the world, and potentially information on targets for terrorist attacks. Much more information may be found, but it will take a while because the sheer volume of available information threatens to overwhelm coalition intelligence operatives, at least in the short run.
