Philippine Security & Political Intelligence Agency
One of the primary and key modules for continuity in the continued success of your security profile, is the development and maintenance of a proactive Intelligence Program.
Security Intelligence is the “first line of defense” to mitigating risk, particularly in Mindanao where the oil and gas, mining, agriculture, and other rural industry sector businesses are more susceptible to highly charged threat events.
Effective preventative measures against criminal actions and acts of terrorism depend to a large extent on the efficiency of Security Intelligence Collections within the security program. Intelligence is input into the investigation and analysis that should be used to identify adverse political developments or outright security threats before they turn urgent. It is the aim of providing the authority and means for the regular and effective collection, processing, storage, retrieval, and exchange of information relating to persons and organizations reasonably suspected of engaging in or likely to engage in certain specified violent, intimidatory, or subversive conduct such as the CPP-NPA, MILF and ASG.
Senior Management within OSI were assigned to the U.S. Embassy, Manila in 1984 as Counter-terrorism Officers, focused on the Communist and Muslim Insurgencies, Philippine-wide, but with special focus on matters dealing with Mindanao in the Southern Philippines. They worked source networks that included “Deep Penetration Agents” within these various Insurgent Groups until their retirement from Government Service in 1992. From 1992, they have continued to handle and work similar sourcing networks focused on same, but also to include focus on political and local business personalities with interests inimical to legitimate Western and local business interests currently active in the Philippines, again, with special focus in Mindanao.
With capabilities in both urban/rural intelligence collection and analysis, OSI is prepared to manage your entire effort from identifying the need for your data to delivering the intelligence product. Based on strategic information received from finished intelligence, this will provide policymakers within an apparatus to make make “intelligent” decisions.
