Intelligence analysis is not a skill reserved strictly for governments or the military. All organizations need to be able to sift through the myriad of available information whether it be big data or individual news reports in order to understand potential threats. Only by achieving this understanding can organizations conduct effective risk management, predict and mitigate threats, overcome obstacles, and deal with whatever challenges may come.
In this age of globalization, organizations no longer have the luxury to focus on a single domain to develop their strategy. Security concerns also go well beyond armed forces and can encompass all levels of society. For this reason, all-source intelligence analysis is more important than ever for discerning the full spectrum of potential scenarios and factors that can influence your bottom line and strategy.
