Apply Systems Thinking to Open Source Intelligence
We see tremendous value in a holistic approach that purposely identifies all conceivable security risks associated with overlapping activities, processes, and cross-functional partnerships. Text highlights, order of events and analysis are organized to expose correlation and stimulate the inter-disciplinary pattern recognition of emerging threats as well as evolving vulnerabilities.
Emphasis is on actionable information, cross-functional dialogue and immediate field application.
Engage a Variety of Stakeholders
The greatest tripping mechanisms for transnational criminals and terrorists are at the points of general everyday contact and observance.

Leverage Cognitive Schemas
Pushing timely and easily digestible information to a broad-spectrum audience increases the odds of integrated problem-solving.
Our Global Terrorism Methodologies and Trends report (GTMT) pushes timely information to a diverse audience using common news articles and straightforward language to boost cross-functional communications. Significant within this process is the leveraging of both short and long-term term recipient memory via a steady state of informational feeds. These clue-builders serve as a powerful situational awareness tool for first responders, warfighters, humanitarian aid groups, security contractors, medical personnel and other front-line workers who move from crisis to crisis—enabling them to better identify threat indicators while they are in motion.
