The Story Behind
Unified Global Intelligence

What are Private Intelligence Agencies?

While private sector intelligence agencies exist in several countries, the industry is far and away the strongest right here in the United States. Presently there are a number of sizable private intelligence organizations that work throughout the world, and UGIA is one of the most experienced within the marketplace.

According to a New York Times editorial, 70% of the United States intelligence budget currently goes to private sector intelligence service providers - making it a $56 billion a year market. Over 500,000 private contract workers actively hold top-secret security clearances within the United States alone. This is a fairly unique circumstance and generally doesn't apply in the vast majority of Allied Nations. The majority of people devote decades operating in the intelligence field throughout the civil services, including well-known agencies such as the CIA or even MI6 in addition to the military services as well as law enforcement agencies, prior to transitioning to the private sector.

A large number of private agencies were in fact founded by retirees coming from the public sector. It's now commonplace for public sector agencies to contract out a considerable amount of the projects that they used to execute internally to private experts. The private sector has the ability to oftentimes provide higher than average compensation than that of state and federal government positions and typically provide a provocative lure to highly effective public sector agents, analysts and technicians.

The Private Sector Challenge

The private intelligence sector maybe more challenging to get into than that of public intelligence. As touched on in this article, the majority of professionals that break into the private sector initially operated publicly, even though there certainly are entry-level positions available. The intelligence sector requires very particular personalities. Much, if not nearly all, of the projects are research & analysis based. These kinds of positions will in most cases require some traveling and a significant amount of regional and international practical knowledge. For university students who have an interest in politics, current events, as well as safety and security topics, private sector intelligence can certainly provide an exciting career opportunity.
