About us

Professional intelligence analysts play a key role in the intelligence community as they are able to put together diverse pieces of information and place them in a context which is useful for decision makers.

The Intelligence Analysis profession is one of the Civil Service Professions. The UK intelligence community includes intelligence collectors, operators, analysts and other specialists.

Intelligence analysis can be described as adding value through the process of taking known information about situations and entities of strategic, operational, or tactical importance and characterising the known and the future actions in those situations.
