Panel Discussion: Lessons Learned from the Intelligence Perspective of the Ukraine-Russian War



There's no doubt about it, “war” is a brutal business. When the lives of soldiers and civilians are at stake, military and national intelligence becomes even more important than during peace times. Intelligence blunders as well as intelligence victories spill more easily into the public domain, as journalists are desperately trying to grab any items they can report on. It's no wonder that during the Ukrainian-Russian war, various intelligence-related innovations have become apparent to the general public. 

Our panel discussion will focus on lessons from this war that can be applied to the broader Competitive and Market Intelligence field.

  • Economic consequences: energy crisis and supply chain disruptions.
  • Use of strategic intelligence prior to and during the war.
  • Intelligence collection by aerial reconnaissance (such as drones or commercial satellites)
  • Use of social media users as sensors for enemy activities.
  • Social media as a platform for community building and bi-directional communication.
  • Agitation, propaganda and fake news as a means to influence stake-holders and military personnel alike.
  • Deception, surprise and counter intelligence.
  • Similarities, analogies and differences between Military and Competitive Intelligence.
