Handbook of scientific methods of inquiry for intelligence analysis by Hank Prunckun( )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the exponential growth in the intelligence field in the last few years, the profession has grown much larger and its mission more complex. Government and private sector security agencies have recruited intelligence analysts to process what has become a voluminous amount of raw information flowing into these agencies' data collection systems. Unfortunately, there is an unmet need for analysts who are able to process these data. For this reason there are a growing number of colleges and universities that offer intelligence training so that candidates for analyst positions can take-up their duties without protracted on-the-job instruction. Handbook of Scientific Methods of Inquiry for Intelligence Analysis offers students in such courses a way of gaining the analytic skills essential to undertake intelligence work. This book acquaints students and analysts with how intelligence fits into the larger research framework. It covers not only the essentials of applied research but also explains the function, structure, and operational methods specifically involved in intelligence work. It looks at how analysts work with classified information in a security conscious environment, as well as obtaining data via covert methods. Students are left with little doubt about what intelligence is and how it is developed using scientific methods of inquiry."--Publisher's website

Cyber weaponry : issues and implications of digital arms by Hank Prunckun( )

11 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is little doubt that cyber-space has become the battle space for confrontations. However, to conduct cyber operations, a new armory of weapons needs to be employed. No matter how many, or how sophisticated an aggressor's kinetic weapons are, they are useless in cyber-space. This book looks at the milieu of the cyber weapons industry, as well as the belligerents who use cyber weapons. It discusses what distinguishes these hardware devices and software programs from computer science in general. It does this by focusing on specific aspects of the topic: contextual issues of why cyber-space is the new battleground, defensive cyber weapons, offensive cyber weapons, dual use weapons, and the implications these weapons systems have for practice. Contrary to popular opinion, the use of cyber weapons is not limited to nation states (though this is where the bulk of news reporting focuses). The reality is that there isn't a sector of the political economy that is immune to cyber skirmishes. So, this book looks at cyber weapons not only by national security agencies and the military, but also by law enforcement, and the business sector: the latter includes administrations termed non-government organisations (NGOs)"--Back cover

"When the husband of a prominent Boston art museum curator goes missing, his wife contacts our PI asking him to find him. She insists the investigation must be secret. No one is to know that her American Indian artist husband disappeared-there is to be no publicity that could reflect badly on the artist's reputation, or her social status.Our PI senses something deeper is wrong. Why not report him missing to the police? If it is foul play, surely the police should get involved. Perhaps his disillusionment with his professional life after his wife's passing drives him to do a job he normally wouldn't. Experience tells him to walk away, but the client lures him in. A touching tale of intrigue that takes our PI from small-town America to the remoteness of South Australia in his search for the missing man where he finds more than he expected." -- Back cover

Espionage Black Book One : Intelligence Databases Explained by Hank Prunckun( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Intelligence" is a word that conjures assorted notions of spying and espionage, secrets, and the world of covert gadgetry. Yet to some people, the word intelligence is closely associated with the Orwellian concept of "big brother" - a world of hard-ball politics and an uncompromising quest for power and influence. There is no doubt that intelligence work is associated with all these concepts. But as will be explained, intelligence in its lowest common denominator is no more than the use of sound qualitative and quantitative research methods. So, to support secret research, the intelligence database was created. This book explains the construction of databases for secret research. Yet how do intelligence analysts construct these databases? What is the logic behind their structure? This book describes these and other methods relating to the construction of intelligence systems. In this way, readers can better understand intelligence databases." -- Back cover
