The forum is hosted by Mercyhurst University, The Tom Ridge School of Intelligence Studies and Information Science, an institution dedicated to furthering partnerships in analysis across the globe. In keeping with the University’s holistic and generalist approach to the field, the conference combines input from these various disciplines for a conversation spanning the larger study of intelligence analysis.
Intelligence-Informed Decision-Making to Build a More Secure Future
The Global Intelligence Forum intends to continue down the path of intelligence innovation and discovery we embarked on in July 2010, when we began to explore the nature of analysis and its application in various intelligence professions. Later, in 2011 and 2013, we discussed the interaction between the intelligence analyst/practitioner and the decision-maker. In July 2015 we continue to build bridges between practitioners and scholars in the fields of public health, hospitality/food security, higher education and intelligence related professions, and discuss emerging 21st century intelligence and data management best practices to inform decision making. In Dungarvan, we will address will be “what will leaders in both the public and private sector need and expect in the way of intelligence to make more effective decisions?”
