2015 Global Intelligence Forum
The Dungarvan Conference
July 12th - 16th, 2015

Background

The Global Intelligence Forum is held biennially in Dungarvan, Ireland, and hosted by the Tom Ridge School of Intelligence Studies and Information Science at Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pa., USA. In keeping with the university’s holistic and generalist approach to the field of intelligence, the 2015 conference aims to combine input from various disciplines to achieve a dialogue spanning the larger study of intelligence analysis while furthering partnerships in analysis around the globe.

 

The Theme

Intelligence-Informed Decision-Making to Build a More Secure Future

The Global Intelligence Forum continues down the path of intelligence innovation and discovery first begun in July 2010 with our exploration of the nature of analysis and its application in various intelligence professions. In 2011 and 2013, the discussion centered on the interaction between the intelligence analyst/practitioner and the decision-maker. In July 2015, we continue to build bridges between decision-makers, practitioners and scholars in the fields of cyber security, geospatial intelligence, and data analytics. Best practice panels and speakers will also explore anticipatory analytics, and the wicked problem approach to intelligence challenges. Additionally, the Forum will provide a breakout session for Higher Education leaders to discuss the application of intelligence practices to higher education decision-making. We will bring best practices in 21st century intelligence and data management to the examination of what leaders in the public and private sectors require to make more effective decisions.
