Counter-terrorism Intelligence

Stay on top of the online conversation

Social networks play a huge role in spreading propaganda and recruiting.

Both mainstream social media sites and less-regulated networks support extremists in this process, the former enabling wider reach while the latter allows for more explicit communications and content.

As we saw with the 2021 Capitol Hill insurrection, violent planning and mobilization are discoverable on these more covert networks. These online spaces are critical for gathering intelligence relevant to terrorist financing and propaganda distribution.

Open-source intelligence supports counter-terrorism efforts by illuminating how extremist groups of any background operate. This can help inform decisions to support individuals who may be vulnerable to recruitment. Intelligence and operations teams can use OSINT to understand and combat emerging social media sources and content used to spread propaganda and recruit. OSINT can also help counter-terrorism efforts to slow or block terrorist financing, which often relies on online channels.
