TYSONS CORNER, VA, May 28, 2020 — ArchIntel, a provider of concise actionable intelligence to business leaders, released a white paper describing how open source intelligence gives competitive advantage to a company and how a commercial organization can set up its OSINT listening post to access relevant competitive intelligence.
The white paper titled “Leveraging OSINT for Competitive Advantage: A Guide to Having Your Listening Post” defines OSINT as any intelligence derived from open-source or publicly available information such as the traditional media, internet, the Deep Web and Dark Web, government reports, and academic and professional publications.
Gaining competitive intelligence (CI) to achieve competitive advantage is one of the key applications of OSINT in the business sector. Enterprises use OSINT in brand protection, public and customer sentiment analysis, personnel and infrastructure security, risk analysis, due diligence and cybersecurity, among other corporate efforts.
An ideal open-source CI provider has the ability to craft a daily intelligence brief customized for an organization, To provide that level of service, the CI provider offers detailed reports, updates its intelligence regularly, delivers actionable intelligence, and has a dedicated and customized intelligence archive. The intelligence reports generated will apply directly to the business by addressing its specific needs.
”Increasingly companies are relying upon outsourced human-based assistance to categorize, dimensionalize and contextualize their competitive intelligence and assist with the identification, comprehension and meaningful projection of OSINT unstructured data,” said ArchIntel President and Founder Jim Garrettson.
