Speaking Wednesday, July 10, at the Global Intelligence Forum in Dungarvan, County Waterford, Europol Director Rob Wainwright urged greater international information-sharing, calling it vital to building an enduring front against security threats.
The Global Intelligence Forum got down to business Tuesday, July 9, by welcoming Robert Watt, secretary general of Ireland’s Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, who set the tone for the morning’s session on “Intelligence in Business.”
Former FBI Director Louis J. Freeh got the ball rolling on Monday, July 8, in Dungarvan, IE, in what is gearing up to be another innovative session of the biennial Global Intelligence Forum hosted by the Institute for Intelligence Studies at Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pa., USA.
United States intelligence officials must do a better job analyzing the mountains of global internet, telephone and financial data they already collect to thwart the cyber terrorists of tomorrow, according to former FBI director Louis Freeh.
Whether it is the FBI or Europol, Google or Statoil, the Garda or Mercyhurst University, organizations that are successful are those best able to adapt to an intensely competitive and rapidly changing global environment. That ability to adapt is rooted in intelligence – and effective intelligence at that.
Huge quantities of data bombard today’s business leaders, but Timothy Krysiek says such “naked data” is of little use as they make decisions that will shape their company’s future. Data is valuable only to the extent it’s been thoroughly vetted and critically analyzed.
Louis Freeh is here, there and everywhere — coming up with the liquidation plan for brokerage MF Global Holdings’ bankruptcy two weeks ago, heading to Ireland next month for Mercyhurst University’s Global Intelligence Forum.
