EU CT Alert: Militant Islamists, Organized Crime and the Balkan Diaspora in Europe

EU CT Alert: Militant Islamists, Organized Crime and the Balkan Diaspora in Europe | OSINT daily | Scoop.it

In light of terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13, countries across Europe have visibly increased security measures and are on the alert for more attacks. Countries in the Western Balkans have similarly boosted security after state agencies received alerts from international partners and from their own intelligence organizations on potential Paris-style attacks in cities of the region (Ora News, November 18). Since the emergence of the Islamic State and continuous reports of Balkan foreign fighters who have joined the organization in Syria and Iraq in recent years, local security analysts and think tanks have attempted to provide profile local fighters who have joined this jihadist organization. They have largely concluded that a majority have criminal backgrounds and come from impoverished areas, but were then mobilized and inspired by individual radical imams, who serve as key links between volunteers and jihadist groups abroad. [1] So far, however, there has been relatively little focus on the alleged role that organized crime groups from the region have played in aiding militant cells in Western Europe, or the involvement of the Balkan diaspora in providing an arms for terrorist groups in the West.

Micaela de Guzman's curator insight, September 13, 2015 12:38 AM

Other countries have been stealing important data from the US for the past year. A lot of the data that are stolen were information that not everyone needs to know about. Spies are now worried that not only will the information be stolen, but they may be distorted which could lead to serious trouble if others receive false information. I think that this is something we should worry about because whatever information is leaked or distorted could cause war. This case may be biased because other countries might be trying to manipulate the US and try to take our country down. I think that this issue could be quite scary because you never know the other country's intention and the fact they are trying to hack and change the information could mean trouble for the country.

Infographic: Corruption Across The World Visualised | OSINT daily | Scoop.it

Poorly equipped schools, counterfit medicine and elections decided by bribes are just some of the consequences of public sector corruption. According to Transparency International, nowhere on earth is deemed totally free of corruption. Somalia and North Korea in particular stand out on this map - both scored only 8 out of a potential perfect score of 100. Denmark, New Zealand, Finland and Sweden were rated the least corrupt nations worldwide, according to Transparency International....

Imagery Adds New Perspectives to Visualization and Analysis
At the most basic level, imagery is simply pictures of the earth. Imagery can be immediate or taken across multiple time spans enabling us to measure and monitor change. Every image contains massive amounts of information and can be one of the most immediate ways to collect data.
 
When it’s integrated with GIS, imagery encompasses a broad collection of data about our world in the form of pictures from above—taken by satellites from space, aircraft flying over our cities, and collected by other sensors. Imagery represents the earth in digital pictures composed of millions of pixels. Satellite and aerial images are geo-referenced pictures that overlay focused areas of our planet.
