The Intelligence Cycle

The foundation of what Mr French does is a process known as the intelligence cycle. This process has 5 basic steps. It relies upon the circular nature of planning, collecting, processing, analyzing and disseminating information.

The planning stage examines what we know and what we do not know to form a plan of active research. What we know is based on client information in combination with previous or existing research cycles. The cooperation fine tunes the research journey.

Collection is rather simple in its raw form. It is the gathering of information in pursuit of the agreed upon plan. What is more complicated about this collection is the forms of information being gathered and accessing that information. There are 6 types of intelligence forms; Signals (SIGINT), Imagery (IMINT), Measurement and Signature (MASINT), Scientific and technical (S&TI), Open- Source(OSINT), Publicly available, Geospatial (GEOINT) and Human Intelligence, in person intelligence gathering (HUMINT). Not all forms will be available or needed in all cases.

Processing is the organization of data collected. By synthesizing and organizing the data, information can be better analyzed, vetted, interpreted and attributed to the desired research plan. This organization of information sets the stage for analysts to recognize patterns and prepares the information for the easy understanding.

Analysis is the process of integrating all the above into intelligence products that can be utilized by our clients. All information and analysis is combined to assessments, reviewed anticipated outcomes and where available or appropriate considers alternative scenarios for our clients.

Dissemination is the final step, distributing the gathered information in a readable format for our clients. Finished intelligence will assist our clients in decision making and may lead to requests for further examination.


Anti Money Laundering (AML)

The Cycle

Placement is the collection of “dirty money” and it’s deposit into a financial institution.

Layering is how the money is disguised i.e. through wire transfers, offshore banks, fraudulent loans or payment to a shell/fake company.

Integration is the final step which is the purchase of assets with the laundered money.

What are some methods of money laundering?

There are a variety of methods that can be used to launder money, including:

Smurfing: This involves making a large number of small financial transactions to avoid detection.

Layering: This involves moving the money through a series of complex financial transactions to make it more difficult to trace.

Placement: This involves using intermediaries to inject the money into the financial system.

Integration: This is the final stage of money laundering, where the money is moved into legitimate businesses or investments.

How we help clients to prevent money laundering?

There are a number of ways we assist our clients to prevent money laundering, including:

Implementing know-your-customer (KYC) requirements: Financial institutions should know their customers and understand their financial activities.

Conducting due diligence: Financial institutions should monitor customer activity for any suspicious behavior.

Filing suspicious activity reports: Financial institutions must report any suspicious activity to the proper authorities.

Cooperating with law enforcement: Financial institutions should cooperate with law enforcement investigations into money laundering.

Disinformation Campaigns

In the digital age, running a disinformation campaign is easier than ever. With just a few clicks, anyone can create a false story and disseminate it widely online.

There are a few key steps to running a successful disinformation campaign. First, you need to identify your target audience. This could be a specific group of people, such as voters in a particular election, or the general public.

Next, you need to create your false story. This story should be designed to appeal to your target audience and to spread quickly. To do this, you can use viral marketing techniques, such as creating a catchy headline or using social media.

Finally, you need to disseminate your story. This can be done through online channels such as blogs, social media, or even email. The more people you can reach, the more likely your story is to gain traction.

With a little planning and effort, you can easily run a successful disinformation campaign.

Disinformation campaigns are a type of negative public relations, where an organization or individual spreads false or misleading information about their target. These campaigns are often used to smear the reputation of an individual or organization, or to discredit a particular idea or belief.

Disinformation campaigns can take many different forms, but all share the common goal of trying to influence public opinion in a negative way. Sometimes, these campaigns are used to create division and discord, by sowing mistrust and suspicion. In other cases, they may be used to undermine confidence in a particular institution, or to make people believe that something is true when it is not.

Disinformation campaigns can be very difficult to detect, because they often rely on spreading misleading or false information in a way that makes it hard to tell what is true and what is not. This can make it difficult for people to know who or what to believe. This is where Mr French can assist.

If you think you are the target of a disinformation campaign, there are some things we can do to try to protect you. First, try to verify any information that you have received, and look for multiple sources that confirm the same story. Second, we are always cautious of anything that seems too good or too bad to be true. And finally, if you are the target of a smear campaign, know that it can be difficult to fight back against false information. The best defense is often to focus on the truth, and to keep spreading accurate information.

Crisis Management

Crisis management planning is a process that helps organizations identify potential risks and develop strategies to deal with them. It includes identifying the people who will be responsible for each step of the plan, as well as developing policies and procedures for dealing with various types of crises. Crisis management planning can help organizations respond quickly and effectively to emergencies, minimize the impact of a crisis on operations, and protect employees, customers, and other stakeholders.

Our crisis consulting services can provide your business with the support it needs to navigate a difficult situation. From public relations and reputation management to legal advice and financial planning, our team of professional crisis consultants can help you protect your interests and minimize the damage to your business.

When a business is faced with a crisis, the first step is to identify the problem and assess the situation. Once the problem has been identified, our next step is to develop a plan to address the issue. This plan should include a communications strategy to control the message and protect the reputation of the business. The crisis plan should also include a legal strategy to protect the interests of the business and its employees.

Once the crisis plan is in place, the next step is to implement it. This may require the help of outside consultants, such as public relations or legal experts. Our crisis consultants can provide the support you need to get through a difficult situation and emerge stronger on the other side.
