Intelligence is considered by many to be strictly within the realm of national security and military operations. However, the appropriate application of intelligence which include collection, analysis, and reporting has become fundamental to successful law enforcement management of resources, national intelligence identification of threats, and the establishment of policies and successful management of corporate and business resources both financial and personnel. Understanding the domain within which an organization operates and identifying intelligence gaps leads to better overall management of resources and successful outcomes within any specific organization.
The work of these analysts, whether relating to banking, national security or criminal investigative activities, involve the preparation of assessments based on the collection, correlation, and analysis of data.
The job market is growing in the intelligence and data analysis sectors. The job outlook for 2019-2029 is predicted to be a much-faster-than-average 25% growth, as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
