Spotting counterintelligence threats in your group

 

When the Ammon Bundy-led Malheur standoff ended in 2016, it was discovered that at any given time, the FBI was receiving information from as many as 15 informants through direct contacts with the Malheur occupiers. The group had been heavily infiltrated by informants and agents, many of whom were given authorization to commit felonies while functioning as occupiers. At least one of the informants has said he was intimidated to join the group and provide information to the FBI. In this example, we see two types of infiltrators, those being the provocateur and the probe.

This is a good primer to really start looking at the subject of counterintelligence.

Although any type of success in any shade of something remotely not establishment an you are likely to be met with both sides of the intelligence process. 

 

Infiltration and disruption/ Intel gathering is one part of operating CI. The other which is particularly the danger is the  manipulation of information being collected. 

 

Organizations cannot be cohesive or efficient while being suspicious of spies. They can't make correct and accurate decisions with an incorrect picture narrated by manipulated information.

 

Being level headed and creating the correct In-group culture can go a long way to combating some of the strategies used.
