National Security Solutions
Every country has a number of Intelligence organisations focused on homeland security, security of their foreign interests, counter terrorism and organised crime. Irrelevant of the makeup and design of these organisations their challenge is clear; to convert data and information into actionable public security intelligence and to ensure that data is available to those who require it without compromising the security of that intelligence.
A reduction in threats to a country cannot be realised without a national security infrastructure that enables data to be collated, converted into intelligence, analysed and disseminated in a timely manner. SAS are the world leaders in providing this complete capability through our specialist solutions.
Continuous realignment of the intelligence cycle
Any national security agency requires a solution that will meet the current and future needs of their Intelligence community to enable intelligence collation, management, exploitation and delivery. Generating reliable, accurate intelligence for public security is an active, continuous realignment of the intelligence cycle. SAS provides a holistic approach to this challenge utilising COTS software ensuring a low-risk, high-return solution.
National security solutions providing secure information sharing
Best practice models and intelligence mandates require analytical-driven investigation and greater information sharing among authorities from the local to national levels in the battle against crime and terrorism. SAS has provided support to national security agencies globally in providing analytical driven threat assessment capabilities but have also driven the concept and techniques to new levels. As such SAS is confident in its ability to meet the requirements of a national security project including ensuring a low-risk and efficient environment.
The data challenge in public security intelligence
The immense data challenge faced by security organisations includes the massive data volumes, changing and growing data feeds and evolving regulations surrounding the use of data. The nature and level of threats to a nation are also constantly evolving as the threat landscape evolves and methods and motives change. To ensure any national security solution that is deployed today can meet the needs of tomorrow, it is essential that the solution is flexible and scalable allowing it to continuously provide timely intelligence both now and into the future.
Many consultancies will advise the development of a bespoke solution specifically for this need, but this often comes at high risk and high cost. Worldwide governments have been working with vendors to develop public security intelligence solutions specifically to meet the needs of the intelligence community. The key to success has been in basing this capability on world class COTs software configured to meet the specific requirements. SAS has extensive experience utilising its world class COTs capability in this manner to serve the interests of national security.
