Case Study

Intelligence collection on the Syrian regime

Services involved:
Threat Intelligence
Due Diligence
Human Source Intelligence


We carried out a deep-dive intelligence collection project looking at significant businessmen connected to the Assad regime in Syria, with specific reference to their connections with the government’s security apparatus (and intelligence services) during the war.

This utilised extensive Arabic and English open source research, including specialist investigatory and analytical techniques, to connect these individuals with front organisations belonging to components of the intelligence services.

We also contextualised this intelligence by placing the individuals, connections and actions identified within a broader timeline.
