CCI – Competitive CounterIntelligence

CCI – Competitive CounterIntelligence


As international business competition increases and the need for information becomes essential to success and survival, U.S. corporations must understand how they can protect themselves and collect information at the same time. Now, more than ever, global competition demands accurate and timely business intelligence. Also, foreign intelligence organizations, who previously targeted government organizations, are now directing their efforts at industry which is seldom prepared to defense against such sophisticated adversaries. Management which buries it’s head in the sand will eventually find itself no longer competitive and ultimately consumed. This course is designed to provide information which will assist in establishing or enhancing programs to protect multinational businesses & government contractors and how to collect business information to assist organizations in the conduct of their operations.

This Counterintelligence program is aimed at those who wish to improve their understanding of the threat to proprietary information today. Advice on how to develop defensive as well as offensive programs will be provided.  Methods for establishing an aggressive intelligence program and an effective Operational Security (OpSec) program will be covered as well as techniques for assessing your proprietary vulnerabilities.



This course is specifically designed for Business Leaders and Corporate Executives who wish to better understand the international business environments they are competing against and who need to know the potential threats they are facing. It is also designed to help them understand how to develop effective long range strategies for the success and survival of their businesses. This course also assists Directors of Security & Risk Management, Project Managers, Intelligence Analysts and Critical Personnel who are responsible for ensuring corporate and industrial Operational Security programs, against competitors in today’s marketplace, with the nature of the threat to Classified and Proprietary Information and the ways that it can be countered. This program provides attendees with processes that can be implemented and applied to situations when designing and maintaining ease dropping defenses.
