Protective intelligence provides actionable intelligence from a strategic, operational and tactical perspective. Collected though various sources, including human collection (HUMINT), open source (OSINT), imagery (IMINT) and other technical means.
Whether to ensure competitive advantage or to protect your organisation, protective intelligence can play a key role in any organisation. By understanding the intelligence need, we can create an intelligence plan which will highlight the areas where we need to collect information and how we collect that information. Our analysts will then collate the information from various inputs and provide a focused threat intelligence report. This report will allow an organisation to understand the threats it is exposed to and how to protect against such threats.
In addition to our intelligence analysis through our Physical Security Operations Centre, we can provide various means of gaining information which allow us to identify current and potential threats. These methods include:
We can offer various intelligence products to meet the demands of our clients, these include:
Basic Intelligence (What has happened?)
This level of intelligence product provides an insight into what has previously occurred and can include documented information which needs to be collated and analysed. This will provide a baseline of intelligence which is vital for planning further intelligence requirements.
Current Intelligence (What is happening?)
Current intelligence provides near real time view of information relevant to the intelligence requirement (direction) and focuses on the present situation, this may involve active collection methods such as investigations and surveillance. Understanding the current situation/environment is key to forming the foundations for operational and tactical decisions.
Estimative Intelligence (What could occur?)
This level of intelligence product can provide a forward thinking assessment and uses conclusions drawn from basic and current intelligence analysis. This predictive solution allows an organisation to understand potential situations and the outcome of such situations.
Warning Intelligence (What situation is developing?)
Similar to that of estimative intelligence, however the aim of this type of intelligence is to warn an organisation of a harmful or damaging situation. When used in conjunction with estimative intelligence, warning intelligence can identify and highlight indicators and triggers associated with hostile situations. This can be achieved through conducting ‘threat scenarios’ in line with estimative intelligence activities
