In this episode our guest lays out the importance of intelligence gather. With some techniques you can know what's going on before the news. Form intelligence contractor Sam Culper of Forward Observer Magazine lays it all out for us.
If you had to give an elevator pitch for your book, SHTF Intelligence: An Intelligence Analyst's Guide to Community Security, what would it be?
In an SHTF senario, we're all going to run into two problems. Number one, we're going to not have enough information to make well informed time sensitive decisions. Or, number two, we going to have way too much information--we're going to be drowning information. And that's going to slow down our decision making process.
So threw intelligence [...] we essentially solve both of those problems before we encounter them.
To solve the first problem, of not having enough inforation, I talk about intelligence collection and how to get it automated. I talk about human intelligence, and imagery, and open source signals intelligence; all the things we need to set up now so that we can beging getting these threat intelligence streams coming into what we call the A.C.E. (Analysis and Control Element). [...] So setting up those information gathering mechanisms now to solve the first problem.
Now to solve the second problem [...] I talk about analysis and how we separate the wheat from the chaff. How we coordinate potentially massive amounts of information and make it relevant [and] ensure that it's timely. [...]
The last part of the book is about how to set up an intelligence element: The roles, the tasks and the responsibilities--what everyone does so that at zero hour we know [...] this is what everyone does and this is how we fill this giant blind spot when it comes to threat intelligence.
