Intelligence Publishing & Sharing Policy
Soviet Union’s failure to anticipate Hitler’s invasion in 1941 is an example of how secrecy interferes with analytic effectiveness. This happens when limiting access to information and sources that may be necessary for accurate analysis occurs. However openness interferes with security by degrading information resources value through revealing specific sources and methods. As such perfect secrecy is ultimately unproductive since it restricts information to a very small group of minds a situation that produces organization failure in competition with resources available to large and diverse group of adversaries.
For optimal national security performance tradeoff within the intelligence community, more organizational emphasis should be well placed on secrecy than of effectiveness. Private intelligence systems can share and deliver intelligence analysis reports to state run intelligence organizations to help increase the capacity of counter-intelligence, besides effective threat matrix analysis.
Strategic Intelligence is open to state run intelligence organization who may find the data published as vital or relevant to their national security. Sharing intelligence will improve besides help reduce time constraints in analysis since the process of strategic intelligence analysis is the process of evaluating and transforming raw data into descriptions, explanations, and conclusions for intelligence consumers.
Our intelligence system model is based on the 4-systems cycle.
Stocks-which represent accumulation of quantities of information that can decrease or increase.
Flow-This represents activities that control the filling of draining information stocks caution conditions change.
Converters- These are factors that change inputs to outputs and usually represent the variables that initiate change.
Connectors-These link elements to other elements, and representing assumptions about what depends on what.
Using this model of intelligence cycle, SIN provides insights into the process of analysis as well as other factors that can influence the successful and timely delivery of intelligence.
State run intelligence organizations must understand that while intelligence has become a trade, cooperating with private intelligence organizations is vital. Besides, the latter must understand intelligence analysis is fundamentally a mental process hindered by lack of conscious awareness of the workings of the human minds, besides a very personal one since there is no agreed-upon analysis schema. Hence, private or individual intelligence analysts primarily use his belief system to make assumptions and interpret information; as such, his assumptions are implicit rather than explicit.
Intelligence organizations must also understand that the analytic process is a construction of the mind and significantly different from analyst to another making intelligence analysis a socio-cognitive process occurring within secret domains by which a collection of methods is used to reduce a complex issue to a set of simpler issues.
