Intelligence is data and information that has value added to it through analysis. Intelligence-led policing, a business-based model for decision making, utilises Intelligence Analysis for directing resources and activity. Intelligence about crimes and crime trends identified within data can be used for analysis to identify the optimum strategies for ground-level police officers, or for any other individuals acting within a security capacity. This allows police officers or security teams to best target their actions to have the most impact, utilising finite resources to reduce or eliminate the largest threats. Intelligence analysis skills are crucial for teams within law enforcement or the corporate security field to assist in the identification of priority crime types and in the targetting of prolific offenders. The results of this analysis can be used to identify strategies for crime prevention, whether that’s through locations, repeat offenders of potential repeat victims.

Hi, I’m Steve Adams

I'm a certified OSINT Practitioner and Intelligence Analyst. With a background in Law and Sociology, specialising in Criminology, I joined one of the largest Police forces in the UK as an Intelligence Analyst. With the Police, I trained to the IPP and NIAT standard and was responsible for analysis of crime to support active investigations and to identify the optimal direction of resources. I now work in the private sector within Criminal and Security Intelligence. Here, my speciality is in conducting Internet Intelligence and Investigations activity, conducting OSINT investigations into individuals to locate criminals and identify criminal activity. I have a wealth of experience with a vast range of different OSINT techniques, as well as experience with the best tools on the market to aid an OSINT and Intelligence practitioner. I recently put my OSINT skills to the test by taking part in a Trace Labs CTF, where my team placed 3rd out of 191 teams internationally.
