Strategic-Intelligence Analysis: Contributions from an Operational-Design Orientation

Abstract:

To ensure actions are ‘purposeful’—that is, that they achieve the intended outcome— planners rely on sound intelligence to develop courses of action. Intelligence requirements and subsequent collection in support of any planning effort should be informed by an appreciation of what that effort is seeking to achieve and specifications of what should be collected.

Dominating the Attacker: Use of Intelligence and Counterintelligence in Cyberwarfare

ABSTRACT

In the event of cyberwarfare the defender must harden the attacker’s target by secure design,
a defined security perimeter, and a suite of tools. Indeed, the defender must be ever alert and ready to react to attack. Over many years, defenders in traditional warfare have learned to predict the style, magnitude and possible outcomes of a physical attack, and how to deceive and confuse an attacker with the objective of changing the outcome. Perhaps the cyberwarfare defender can take a similar approach, by employing intelligence and counterintelligence techniques that are superior to those of the attacker.

Belgium’s Intelligence Community: New Challenges and Opportunities

ABSTRACT

Recently Belgium’s intelligence function has been heavily criticized, predominantly regarding its effectiveness and professionalism. Some voices have even gone as far as to propose abolishment of part of the intelligence community. This paper identifies why efficient intelligence gathering is more than ever a requirement for both the Belgian and European leadership. It reviews Belgium’s intelligence history and studies the roots of its criticisms. Instead of proposing intelligence ‘reform’, it identifies important parameters of how contemporary intelligence should be conducted, and how the intelligence services can adapt within the constraints that apply to them.
