Open Briefing recognises that private intelligence and risk companies have a great deal to offer the peace and security sector.
Companies have access to expertise and resources that would be of significant benefit to Open Briefing’s work on behalf of aid agencies, charities and other civil society organisations. So, unlike traditional financial sponsorship, we are suggesting various intelligence and capacity-sharing agreements. In return, Open Briefing can offer a range of benefits that focus on marketing and corporate social responsibility.
This programme was trialled over 2014 with our first intelligence sponsor, Bradburys Global Risk Partners. Together, we have produced weekly political and security risk updates and other occasional intelligence briefings. We are now ready to expand the programme to other carefully vetted private intelligence and risk companies with excellent reputations. We expect to eventually include around a dozen such companies in the programme.
