Activity-Based Intelligence Training, Activity-Based Intelligence (ABI)  Training Bootcamp, Hands-on Workshop

Secure Programming Training Workshop Training by Tonex

Activity-Based Intelligence Training, learn about Activity-Based Intelligence solution and gain the expertise that is changing how the Intelligence Community planning, reviewing, processing and analyzing critical intelligence data in real-time from sources such as ground, airborne, ocean, space-based electro-optical, infrared, hyper-spectral sensors and others. Activity-Based Intelligence (ABI) Training  bootcamp covers all aspects of intelligence-oriented data analysis approaches for efficient, real-time data analysis. Learn about Activity-Based Intelligence (ABI) tools, principles, processes and skills for data analysis and more.

Activity Based Intelligence (ABI) has been defined and sponsored by the U.S. Office of the Director for National Intelligence and has been embraced by the major U.S. intelligence agencies and their intelligence activities such as:

Computer-assisted problem solving techniques and methodologies such as as ABI can impact intelligence analysis and make ie more efficient and timeliness since too much big data being collected for human analyst and sometimes it is impossible to see the big picture. We need to understand and take action upon historical, current and anticipated activities involving national or global security.

The intelligence extracted from ABI make it easier for analysts to identify potential adversaries and their targets. By organizing and collecting large volumes of collected data, relevant patterns can be recognized and eventual suspicious behaviors can be acted on before a possible threat is imminent. The intelligence communities have a stunning  amount of critical data at their disposal collected and stored each second, however when analyzed correctly, this analytical data set can help accelerate mission outcomes to address emerging security threats, and  quality of the analysis in real time.


Seeing the Big Picture Inside Activity Based Intelligence – Looking for the big picture

Inside Activity Based Intelligence, we as analysts are looking for any interesting connections, in any types of data that constantly being produced and updated.

Activity Based Intelligence (ABI) refers to a method that allows varied types of data, almost like searching for a needle in a haystack even when we don’t know that we are looking for a needle or that we will find it in a particular haystack, very interesting.

ABI, A paradigm shift in analyzing data, points to a multi-INT approach to activity and transactional data analysis to resolve unknown-unknowns, develop intelligence, and drive collection:

  • Analyze large, diverse, known and unknown data streams in real time

  • Geotags and metadata classification
  • Geo-reference to Discover
  • Integrate before Exploitation
  • Sequence Neutrality

  • Why data is considered equally valuable, no matter its source
  • Why classified intelligence is not prioritized over open source data
  • Discovering Unknown
