Head of Intelligence Capability

Intel in the boardroom: Corporate OSINT unveiled

In this episode of Open Secret, we speak to Nikki Rutman. Nikki honed her intelligence skills in government for over two decades, including with the Federal Bureau of Intelligence (FBI), then turned her sights to the pharmaceutical industry. But it isn't easy building an intelligence capability from scratch! Her secret weapon? Good OSINT analysts. 

Nikki says the ideal intelligence professional is innately curious, versatile, and comfortable with a bit of discomfort because no two days are ever the same.

Listen to find out how you can build intelligence capability in your organisation and communicate with impact (fast!). And how to turn corporate speak into tangible, actionable research problems for your team.
