Five Pillars Every Intelligence Program Needs

Implementing any intelligence program can be very tricky given the variables that each and every organization faces. Most intelligence programs fail because the ramifications of not having guidelines in-place for how and what kind of intelligence to obtain are not taken in to consideration. This webinar will cover the five pillars that need to exist in any intelligence program to ensure success, and ensure others view as a credible program.

This is a ‘must take’ webinar for validating and realigning existing intelligence programs that are currently in place or providing the foundation to build a new intelligence program. This webinar will provide both the insights and the tools needed to obtain a best-in-class intelligence foundation and the ability to apply every internal intelligence project. This webinar will also provide insights on what aspects cause most intelligence programs to fail.

Data Privacy as a Business Benefit

A SCIP Members Only E-Learning Event

Presented by: Jason Ritzke, Senior Systems Engineer, TAOS


In 2015 and 2016 "hacking" was a word that was on many lips. And from Sony Pictures to the DNC to the very recent ransoming of thousands of unsecured NoSQL datastores, it remains highly relevant. Yet with the sensationalization of the term "hacking" and the inherently violative nature of breach, we may miss the true casualty of criminal attacks of our computer systems: data.
Unlike service availability or quality, data - once stolen - cannot ever be considered regained. And with it frequently goes trust, both of customers and employees. Furthermore in many cases this data carries with it legislative burden, causing its loss to transition from an issue of mere economics to an issue of legality.   For these reasons it is incumbent upon us as professionals to ask the questions, "What actions can we take to comprehend and reduce the risks (economic, legal, and ethical) to our business? And furthermore, can this comprehension be turned from simple risk mitigation to outright advantage?"

In this talk Jason Ritzke will cover tangible, real-world examples of businesses that have succeeded - and failed - with their data privacy strategies. Additionally, he will show how each type approached data privacy and made it relevant to their customers and employees. Finally, he will provide practical tools for understanding and improving a business' security and privacy strategy, as well as some good metrics to use to evaluate maturity.


  • Businesses that don't take privacy and security seriously are doomed to be embarrassed and shamed in a breach scenario
  • Organizations can make constructive top-down pushes to improve, but these must be culturally modern in order to succeed
  • Good fundamentals are a necessity, shiny products are false idols

 What is Competitive Intelligence (CI) and What It Should Include


While market research often focuses on fulfilling specific information needs, Competitive Intelligence is an ongoing process of developing a holistic analysis of your organizational environment. “Competitive” Intelligence is not “Competitor” Intelligence. Competitive Intelligence can focus on a specific aspect of Competitor Intelligence, but it can also focus on other disciplines such as products, customers, employees, lost prospects, marketing, sales or environmental aspects. Competitive Intelligence provides organizations with a competitive advantage in any of those disciplines when a structured program is properly implemented, managed and maintained.   CI is an ever increasingly essential element in allowing organizations to make more effective decisions on both strategic and tactical initiatives and also provides vital insights and serves as an early warning of future events, which uncovers positive or negative impacts to your organization. One of the most important aspects of implementing any intelligence program is the ability to convert data and information into actionable intelligence

This webinar will uncover and discuss all aspects an organization should understand and consider when it comes to what Competitive Intelligence is comprised of and all the different facets that it can be leveraged for.

 Employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS)

Few organizations can achieve or sustain high customer retention without driven, productive, and engaged employees. Engaged employees approach their jobs with energy, which in turn delivers productivity, innovation and customer excellence for the organization.
Organizational managers therefore, have good reason to want to measure that enthusiasm and the loyalty levels of their employees. This means understanding employee engagement levels and how to improve them. Employee Net Promoter Scores (eNPS) are an early warning mechanism for gauging employee enthusiasm and commitment to the organization.

This webinar will detail the eNPS concept and what organizations need to do in order to obtain additional critical employee metrics, in conjunction with eNPS, to finally provide visibility into the people side of an organization. The insight and intelligence will allow an organization to more effectively manage and motivate employees.
