The Global Intelligence Files

The Global Intelligence Files

On Monday February 27th, 2012, WikiLeaks began publishing The Global Intelligence Files, over five million e-mails from the Texas headquartered "global intelligence" company Stratfor. The e-mails date between July 2004 and late December 2011. They reveal the inner workings of a company that fronts as an intelligence publisher, but provides confidential intelligence services to large corporations, such as Bhopal's Dow Chemical Co., Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and government agencies, including the US Department of Homeland Security, the US Marines and the US Defence Intelligence Agency. The emails show Stratfor's web of informers, pay-off structure, payment laundering techniques and psychological methods.

We could do a 2 minute video just looking at the attack cycle.
Could be good as a standard video to embed or link to when breaking news
involving the cycle occurs.

Enjoyed the video. Spot-on with what we teach in our Surveillance
Awareness Workshop. We actually use an Attack Cycle diagram similar to
yours -- but broken down even further with emphasis on the three stages
of surveillance that occur prior to a typical attack. Our clients are
getting the message, and their security personnel understand that they
can detect these indicators and have a hand in thwarting the attack
before it ever happens. (A very empowering feeling for many of them).
And, based on the number of suspicious activities detected by TrapWire
users over the past two years (many significant enough to be turned over
to law enforcement and JTTF for further investigation), the approach we
and you are advocating really works. Hope you get a chance to see the
system in action some time out in Vegas. They are the poster child for
how to use the system correctly.

Fight the good fight,
