Webinar | Breaking Down Intelligence Collection: From Information to Actionable Intelligence

Intelligence analysis is a complex process that involves gathering, evaluating, and interpreting information to produce insights that can inform decision-making. A better understanding of the fundamental pillars of intelligence will allow the intelligence community to better understand the needs of intelligence producers and consumers, as well as what buyers should pay attention to when considering a product or service.

In this webinar, intelligence experts, Aaron Dixon and Daphnée Aguilar, come together to dive deeply into the following topics:

  • How intelligence is created through the Intelligence Cycle.
  • How strategic, tactical, and operational intelligence differ from, and relate to, one another.
  • How analysts utilize intelligence collection disciplines to ensure high intelligence quality.
  • How information converts into actionable and impactful intelligence.
  • How to avoid information overload, manipulation, and other common pitfalls of intelligence generation.
