The idea of gathering intelligence from open source, human or social media as regular practice for structures in the field has been a frequently debated topic for specialized literature. Unlike this, gathering intelligence from corroborated Strategic Communication (StratCom) sources and instruments so that the information extracted that way be later on stored in databases and sieved through predictive analytics software to then reveal state or non-state actors’ measures and behaviors has recently been shared as a novel thesis of the present author and recently taken over by doctoral schools in the field. The current paper provides an extended insight into the topic, to consolidate the construct.
