Information/intelligence is a “Progressive Force” in the business “Battlefield“.
The vision of information/intelligence is at our fingertips, at any given time or place, which both induces and slows down processes. It is the dream of each and every businessman and organization, whether public or institutional.
Everything begins when information/intelligence falls into the right or wrong hands, and thus influences the process of decision making.
Information/intelligence of this kind can lead to the rise or fall of corporations and organizations, may hinder business transactions, or alternatively, may give a critical advantage to the opposition and competition.
The Nightmare of any leader/manager/owner is the threat of infiltration of competitors from outside and from the circle close to you, into the home field – discussions, decisions, professional secrets, conversations, phone calls (linear, cellular, fax), bids, computer, vehicle, home and family.
The major and immediate advantage in the competitive intelligence world is the tight security of information/intelligence that prevails in your business or organization, resulting from the numerous and varying threats of which we are unaware in our everyday routine, and preventing tremendous damage to your business, organization and to you, the manager/owner, on a personal level.
Critical information/intelligence is worth a lot. Companies, institutions and organizations invest high budgets in two parallel channels:
- Keeping the existing information/intelligence from leaking out, thus preventing a significant advantage to the opposition.
- Obtaining information/intelligence in order to create an advantage over the competition/opposition, according to the universal saying:
“The best defense is offence”
Security in terms of protection and collection of information/intelligence is an array of protection circles. The core of this array is a combination of procedures, skills and advanced technologies. The outer circles must account for all aspects of physical security, including entry control, communications control and infrastructure (linear, data, cellular), computer systems and network infrastructure, departmentalization, employee control, guest control, internal and external maintenance control as well as issues such as organizational awareness and employment of tools for gathering information.
Your ability to recognize and define imminent threats to the assets you are protecting, and to decide on an appropriate operational response is essential.
True professional experience in the field of information/intelligence protection is both rare and unique. Our professional experience has been accumulated through years of service to various branches of the Israeli security establishment, including:
- The Israeli Security Agency (Secret service “Shabac”)
- The “Mossad”
- Private businesses
- Political organizations
