[CAVIE-ACCI] Provider of concise actionable intelligence to business leaders, ArchIntel announced the release of its latest white paper, “Leveraging OSINT for Competitive Advantage” which provides insight into how open source intelligence can help a company gain an edge over its competition.
OSINT is a powerful tool that allows for strategic intelligence sharing when commercial organizations need it most. It offers businesses the ability to protect brand reputation, analyze public and customer sentiments, secure personnel and infrastructure, assess risks for strategic planning and decision-making, perform due diligence and strengthen cybersecurity.
Business organizations in sectors such as defense, aerospace, financial services, construction and design, education, legal, transportation and logistics, energy, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, software and technology, retail, health and life sciences, shipping, and even venture capital rely on OSINT providers such as ArchIntel for strategic intelligence.
“Companies are benefitting from the structured outsourcing of contextualized OSINT data collection so they may focus on the priority interpretation of their competition‘s product evolution, technology and the acceleration of the DevOps movement across all major business sectors,” said ArchIntel President and Founder Jim Garrettson.
According to ArchIntel, competitive intelligence (CI) is providing the all-encompassing 360-degree-view businesses need to be more competitive relative to their entire environment. An adequately designed CI program offers multiple advantages to a commercial organization. These benefits include competitor analysis, competitor mapping, technological advancements and changes in industry standards, marketing insights, product insights, buyer behavior and big data analytics.
ArchIntel’s white paper outlines four fundamental types of open source CI: communication intelligence, financial intelligence, technical intelligence and human intelligence.
