Social Media Analysis

The Threat Intelligence and Analysis Department (TI&A) has a team dedicated to social media analysis (who have been active for over 10 years) to monitor sites of interest relating to customer intelligence gaps. Such material is then disseminated through a number of reports.  This service has been used to monitor threats to major sporting events in support of security forces.

The reports include:

  • Alerts  – identifying threats made by extremists in a timely manner
  • Flashlight – dedicated technical and tactical IED reporting
  • Extremist Video Library – a library of extremist videos going back over 6 years
  • Terrorist Recruitment and Radicalisation Media – analyzing extremist media content associated with the above
  • Customized reports
