PART 2: (10 x slide PPT with note pages). THE PROJECT EXPECTATIONS:
1. It has been determined that over 90% of the raw intelligence data obtained by professional intelligence organizations is gained through open source intelligence collection.
2. The intelligence cycle is formally used by just about every organization in the world to one degree or another. This includes the Boy Scouts (national office in Washington, DC developing lobbying efforts.) and world religions, not to mention the FSB, the FBI, the US Department of Agriculture and so forth. Intelligence is not, and never has been, a function limited to military use. Intelligence is a vital force multiplier for every organization.
3. Open Source collection demands that collector knows where and how to look. Open Source collection is not limited to print or electronic sources. It also involves access to any openly promulgated information.
4. Once you begin collecting raw data, then determine what your main point of emphasis will be. Assume I am your boss, or your client. Assume I have assigned you this project: to learn about organization X. You choose the reason after you gather raw data since I do not know, nor do you perhaps, what exactly you will be able to gather in the few weeks assigned to this course. I want you thinking as an adversary. What information does our organization present that others can gather to harm us. In researching, don’t forget about the CEOs and their families, satellite photos, blueprints, activities, etc. What you find out is information that an adversary can use to their benefit.
5. Here is the process you should follow:
*identify a target organization you wish to investigate.
*begin collecting raw open source intel data on that target.
*the target may be one of personal or professional interest to you.
*use as many possible open source conduits as possible.
*do not just stick to books or the internet. Search. Use satellite photos, search tax records, etc.
*collect and then organize your data.
*determine your approach to this target based on how much data you have collected.
*analyze your data: what does it tell you?
*compose a PPT briefing (approximately 10 slides) with detailed note pages directed to me that explains your findings, and that is supported by your raw data and analysis. Accompany your PPT with a word document (approximately 3-5 pages double spaced in Chicago format) that covers the four areas of your topic development listed above.
*upload this PPT briefing and word document to the assignments section by the end of Week 7.
6. Do not substitute graphic heavy PPT slides in place of detailed analysis and text in the note pages all in proper Chicago author-date formatting.
7. An excellent example is attached for your review. This is not to intimidate, but rather to demonstrate how far one can go with this project. NOTE: Its format is not the same as above, i.e. the word document doesn’t follow the target choice format above and the PPT presentation doesn’t have note pages. You are to follow the formats and expectations above.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a passive OSINT collection exercise. Do not actively participate or interact in anyway with the organization or individual in order to gain intelligence. For example, do not attempt to join a terrorist organization in order to gain intelligence. Only that which is readily available to you on the internet or in a library should be pursued. Do not join a site, engage directly with, or give your information to any entity in order to produce this project.
