Source Identification

Source Identification

Also known as talentspotting or scouting, this involves the identification of potential sources based on their actual or potential access to target information.

Source Investigation

Source Investigation

Potential sources must undergo extensive background investigation. This is not only to identify aspects of a source’s background that might pose a danger or risk to the operation, but also to better understand the source’s current situation. Knowing what makes a person tick enables one to tailor an approach that appeals to that person’s beliefs, experiences, motivations, etc.

Source Recruitment

Source Recruitment

This is the most risky phase, and one that requires great skill and planning. In order to successfully recruit a source, one must understand a great deal about the potential source’s loyalties, motivations, weaknesses, situation and outlook. An approach can be made directly or can be engineered in such a way that the source believes that they’ve initiated the contact.

Source Training

Source Training

Training is usually an ongoing activity. At the outset, though, it is important to provide the source with basic tradecraft skills, particularly those related to communication security and counter-surveillance.

Source Evaluation

Source Evaluation

Evaluation is a fundamental intelligence activity that involves the ongoing assessment of the credibility of the source as well as the reliability of information provided by that source.
