Intelligence and Security Workshops

We offer a series of workshops and presentations linked to the Digital Technologies curriculum. They are designed for high school aged students interested in learning more about the Security, Intelligence and Counter Terrorism fields. Each of these workshops can run for one hour, or in combinations to make half day sessions.

i-Ops (Intelligence and Security)

Intelligence is the collection and analysis of information to inform decision makers on how to secure financial, political, industrial, economic, and/ or environmental interests. Counterintelligence is the protection of this sensitive information. Our i-Ops (Intelligence Operations) workshop offers high school students an opportunity to experience life as an Intelligence officer, analysing, collecting and interpreting data! Each session is for one hour.

Security Analyst – (Kim’s game) - This interactive collaborative game asks students to define, deduce, identify and classify objects into intelligent information. Students will have to carefully examine objects of interest, ascertain their meaning and deduce the information to make a statement about the person of interest. Who are they? Where are they from? Where have they been?

Intelligence Test – Don’t confuse this with IQ! Learn about the different skills needed to work in Intelligence. Solve problems, report on data, practice your observational skills. Look for irregularities, find patterns, remember key features and report on what you see and understand. What information doesn’t add up? Why? Undertake the online an Intelligence test – What can you Hear? See? Remember?

Situational Awareness – how well can you discriminate between images, really see what is going on or pay attention to detail? Can you find Wally and Waldo in a crowd? How do you do it? Test your observation and situational skillsby undertaking these simple challenges.
