The Anneal Initiative founders consistently drive analysis to be predictive so they can maximize decision-makers’ opportunities to prevent incidents or attacks before they occur. Anneal Initiative, Inc. has and will continue to advance intelligence as a highly effective tool for informing industry and government leaders on high impact decisions they must make regarding security policies, defensive strategies, future capabilities, and budgets.
In the years following September 11th, 2001, Anneal Initiative’s founders worked to form a uniquely effective intelligence analysis operation that bridged these disparate sets of expertise to conduct robust analysis that provided early warning and threat detection for critical infrastructure, counterterrorism investigations, and to forecast disease outbreaks among humans, animals, and crops. The Anneal team has used this experience to re-envision a more robust and effective intelligence cycle that allows for a more fluid and seamless incorporation of non-traditional expertise into otherwise incomplete analysis to produce much more relevant and timely intelligence.
Over the course of a decade, the Anneal Initiative founders developed and led one of the most innovative multi-discipline/multi-agency intelligence analysis teams in the nation. Their experience in bringing together the critical infrastructure expertise and government intelligence analysis expertise proved that together those entities could generate much earlier warning of emerging threats and more robust risk assessments. The Anneal Initiative team has continued to develop innovative strategies for building high value intelligence analysis by combining the expertise of industry, academia, and government.
