Intelligence dissemination management - Models

  • Intelligence has to be relevant. Assuming that some reference is considered to be useful, such as a basic country reference, users pull information from it when they have a question. There is relatively little interaction involved in producing the reference; analysts add to it when they have new material.

  • While analysts will do the basic work in developing indications and warning checklists, the analysts should get reality checks from the consumers. Where the analysts drive things, however, is when they issue warnings.

Intelligence dissemination management - Models

  • The issuance of a warning is almost always going to generate questions. A tactical report, however, may be enough, in and of itself, not to need more clarification, but to have the consumer take immediate action. Situation monitoring involves a steady flow of analyst actions, but there will be fairly frequent refinement requests from the consumers.

  • While analysts generate estimates, estimates may not be relevant unless consumers have been involved in defining the requirements for estimates

  • The proper relationship between intelligence gathering and policymaking sharply separates the two functions....Congress, not the administration, asked for the now-infamous October 2002 National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iraq's unconventional weapons programs, although few members of Congress actually read it

Intelligence dissemination management - Constraints

  • Many nations have an extremely restricted daily report that goes to the highest officials (e.g., the President's Daily Brief in the US), a more widely circulated daily that omits only the most sensitive source information, and a weekly summary at a lower classification level.

  • More generally than the classified equivalent of all-news channels, dissemination is the process of distribution of raw or finished intelligence to the consumers whose needs initiated the intelligence requirements.

Intelligence dissemination management - Constraints

  • Some parts of the intelligence community are reluctant to put their product onto even a classified web or wiki, due to concern that they cannot control dissemination once the material is in the published online format

Intelligence dissemination management - Constraints

  • While modern information storage simplifies the handling and dissemination of exceptionally sensitive material, especially if it never is committed to hard copy, the systematic handling of compartmented information probably is most associated with the Special Liaison Units (SLU) originally for the distribution of British Ultra (cryptography)|Ultra COMINT

Intelligence dissemination management - Constraints

  • . These units, and the equivalent US Special Security Offices (SSO), usually brought material to indoctrinated recipients, perhaps waited to answer questions, and took back the material. In some large headquarters, there was a special security reading room.

Intelligence dissemination management - Constraints

  • SLUs/SSOs had, from WWII on, dedicated, high-security communications links intended for their use alone. On occasion, senior commanders would send private messages over these channels.

Intelligence dissemination management - Constraints

  • Prior to US adoption of the British system, officer couriers brought COMINT to the White House and State Department, staying with the reader in most cases. For a time, after an intercept was found in the wastepaper basket of FDR's military aide, the Army and Navy cryptanalytic agencies unilaterally cut off White House access.

  • In current US practice, there may be a special security office with the physical security of a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) used for Classified information in the United States#Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) and Special Access Programs (SAP)|Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) and Special Access Programs (SAP) information inside an organization

Intelligence dissemination management - Constraints

  • Soviet military intelligence rezidenturas in embassies had a central record room, from which individual GRU officers would check out locked file boxes, carry them to curtained alcoves, do their work, reseal the box, and check it back in.

Intelligence dissemination management - Basic Intelligence

  • Consumers often need to look up individual facts, which is very much a pull model that assumes the intelligence providers keep the inventory of basic intelligence material updated

Intelligence dissemination management - Warning and Current Intelligence

  • At a given level (e.g., alliance, country, multinational coalition, major military command, tactical operations), current intelligence centers continually provide customers, including other intelligence organization, with the all-source equivalent of daily newspapers and weekly newsmagazines. Current intelligence often is briefed directly to senior officers.

Intelligence dissemination management - Warning and Current Intelligence

  • Current intelligence organizations need to be concerned with both tactical and strategic warning.

Intelligence dissemination management - Warning and Current Intelligence

  • The goal of 'tactical warning' is to inform operational commanders of an event requiring immediate action. Warning of attacks is tactical, indicating that an opponent is not only preparing for war, but will attack in the near term.
