Open Source Intelligence

SCC employs intelligence trade-craft to source, vet, and scrub raw intelligence sources into completed analytical products. We routinely delivers intelligence bulletins, background reports, intelligence briefings, threat assessments, chronologies, and deep dives. Our intelligence infrastructure, paired with impressive contacts and resources gives you a decisive advantage.

NATO defines Open Source Intelligence as “unclassified information that has been deliberately discovered, discriminated, distilled, and disseminated to a select audience in order to a address a specific question. It provides a very robust foundation for other intelligence disciplines. When applied in a systematic fashion, OSINT products can reduce the demands on classified intelligence collection resources by limiting requests for information only to those questions that cannot be answered by open sources.”

Former Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency Lt. General Samuel V. Wilson’s estimated that “ninety percent of intelligence comes from open sources.”
