Our current systems, avenues, and techniques of data gathering, analysis, interpretation and storage secure from outside interference, theft and manipulation? If so, does this affect the sharing of data and information amongst partner states in the global arena? Intelligence entails various aspects, as influenced by prevailing contexts, which gradually continue to evolve with time. It pertains to the collection, analysis, and storage of critical data that is useful in ensuring government responses are based on factual and realistic aims or goals. Due to the delicate nature of national security and intelligence gathering, essential steps are mandatory, especially concerning ensuring the wholesomeness, accuracy, and protection of such information. As it is said, ‘Information is power’ and indeed, information gives power to its possessor, regardless of the aims or agenda. In answer, I hope to provide how information gathering, analysis, and storage may affect outcomes in terms of policy implementation, law enforcement, security and domestic intelligence. This is because the global society is interdependent, in terms of security, peace and counter-terrorism goals. Through effective techniques of predictive analysis, one is able to understand the delicate nature of securing the overall integrity of data or information within the various security and intelligence agencies. This is not only true concerning American contexts but rather is a global issue that requires concerted efforts in intelligence sharing, gathering, storage, and trafficking, as well as analysis.
