Event Info


The Certificate in Applied Strategic & Tactical Intelligence Analysis (CASTIA) delivers  fundamental knowledge, understanding and applied skills in the domain of intelligence work, with a special emphasis on the collection and analysis of information. In this Program, Strategic Intelligence pertains to the collection, processing, analysis, and dissemination of intelligence that affects macro-level considerations of a corporation such as its overall security from a range of threats, safety and wellbeing of staff, political risk exposure, corporate reputation, and overall ability to operate. Tactical Intelligence pertains to the collection, processing, analysis, and dissemination of intelligence that affects micro-level considerations of a security or analytical unit within a corporation on operational and investigative matters. This course covers all-source intelligence but focuses on the high value of open-source intelligence (OSINT) i.e. overt, publicly available sources (as opposed to covert sources). It also covers significant aspects of social media intelligence (SOCINT).

CASTIA is designed for both current Security Practitioners as well as those intending on a career switch from a non-security role into a corporate Security role. It is applicable to participants from both the private and public sectors and is pegged at those working mid-level security operations and corporate management.

Upon completion of the three-day CASTIA course and successful completion of an on-line examination, participants will earn a professionally-known in the industry Certification from the Academy of Security, Intelligence and Risks Studies (ASIRS). Participants will also be able to complete four other Security Modules to earn the Diploma of Anti & Counter Terrorism Studies.

The key objective of CASTIA is to provide participants with the building-blocks forming  a comprehensive intelligence operations framework to acquire and analyse valuable information with the central goal of assisting corporate decision-making by reducing the element of uncertainty in the face of increasing complexity of todays’ operational environment.

Participants of CASTIA will gain in-depth knowledge and understanding of a range of critical concepts that underpin the domain of intelligence, vital mental and organising models that form the basic toolbox of this tradecraft, and templates to assist with the analysis, management and dissemination of intelligence products. Ideas and learning points will be anchored in the minds of participants through relevant examples, case briefs, a culminating class activity called EXERCISE NORTHERN GATEWAY, and an online examination. CASTIA enables participants to conduct intelligence work and to organise and manage intelligence operations to support the needs of the corporation they work for.
