Information is knowledge communicated about a particular fact or circumstance.
Intelligence is all about finding out information, determining what it means – and then using it to take action!
Information is everywhere – whether it’s daily news, online blogs or conversations between friends – Intelligence however, often refers to the information not freely available, or within the public domain.
Intelligence – as we see it, is typically privileged information intended for a particular audience. The art of intelligence to collect this privileged and/or protected information, and use it to our benefit.
