Profiling & Analysing Threats: Practical Tools for Targeting
Understand contemporary intelligence practices and gain insight and control over your own biases
Bias, Human Profiling and the targeting of poor behaviours are fascinating and eternal components of the practice of intelligence.
Bias is often a key component of intelligence failure which means that building knowledge in this area is critical to anyone operating in roles that advise decisions on targeting at-risk behaviours across corporate and government sectors.
This workshop explores the basics on how to identify your own personal bias and how bias may impact your analysis of threat and harm. Participant’s own biases are put to the test across the art of human behaviour analysis using multiple case-studies crossing: enforcement, terorism and organisational assessment. These consider targeting analysis from events (who could have done this), through data (what is anomalous behaviour), and connect such analysis with a clear view of harm. The various pitfalls of contemporary open source analysis and data modelling are explored, enabling participants to develop tools and techniques to maximise assessment while avoiding disinformation.
The skills introduced are transferable to any industry including the identification of suspects, assessment of corporate competition, marketing analysis, regulation and change management. This course differentiates ‘human profiling’ from ‘criminal profiling’, introducing participants to a method that is grounded in intelligence field collection and human source management techniques.
