TIC’s will also bring its contracted services to meet the security and intelligence needs of the private sector.
  • open source intelligence: TIC launched the open source news service called “The Source” -thesourceworldbeat.com.  Can provide a team of analysts to monitor real time threats and create reports or advisory services around geographic locations or events
  • staffing: TIC has three paying clients for staffing services and has received frequent requests for information from potential new clients. Contracts can be structured as hourly, referral or advertising packages.  Maintains an online freelance marketplace – allows defense and intelligence freelancers to be discovered for on-demand work opportunities.
