Intelligence collection, analysis and exploitation are critical to any security operation, risk management plan or investigation.  Our experience has shown the importance of effective intelligence is not often a focus during initial or concurrent training for those in the security and risk management industry.  Our goal is to change that by providing the essential theory and skills required to execute critical investigative functions, threat detection and threat monitoring for professionals.
