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 and the Portal. 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 – analysing extremist media content associated with the above
- Customized reports
