INT 525 Advanced Counterterrorism Analysis

The task of counterterrorism is one that is particularly analysis-intensive. It requires its practitioners to employ a melded set of analytical tools and interoperable capabilities. This objective can be complicated by the fact that many counterterrorism operations might involve several entities, including both the Intelligence Community and unclassified counterterrorism efforts. This course will explore how to create a unified, integrated, and multi-disciplinary counterterrorism analysis program that makes the best use of all available resources.

The course learning outcomes that you will demonstrate upon completion of this course are as follows:

Define counter-terrorism analysis and list its more common objective, and describe the context in which counterterrorism analysis is conducted.

Apply the analytical tools used most often in counter-terrorism analysis.

Build and manipulate a matrix to show connections and perform link analysis on counterterrorism initiatives.

Explain the difficulties in working with different groups (i.e., government intelligence and civilian law enforcement) and list ways to lessen those difficulties.

List the legal, systematic and cultural reasons why different government agencies tend not to share information; describe different projects around which cross-entity collaborations may form, and explain why one agency or government entity cannot expect to do CT analysis all on their own.
