Open-source intelligence, or OSINT, has become an increasingly important tool for close protection details. But because many intelligence analysts have never worked in the field, some struggle to provide the actionable insights needed to keep clients safe.

So how can we address this problem?

Denida Grow, Founder & CEO Athena Worldwide and Nannyguards as well as Managing Partner at LeMareschal LLC, is on the show this week.

In this episode, she breaks down the communication gap that exists between OSINT analysts and close protection teams on the ground.

Expect to learn what every OSINT analyst should do before working with an EP team, the danger of sending too much information to agents on the ground, what protectors on the ground probably won’t tell you, the common OSINT mistakes that compromise client safety, the number one trait of top OSINT analysts, how biases can jeopardize security, one of the biggest problems across the security industry today, and much more.
