Hex was set up because we believe private sector intelligence in the UK is at a crossroads. Amazing tech and game-changing data are left on the shelf while lesser alternatives make it through. Demand signals are confusing and use cases are ill-defined. At Hex our years of experience in both Government and private sector intelligence are put to use translating requirements, building tradecraft and training analysts. We optimise products, drive debate and put ethical practice front and centre.
Hex is about helping people with unique tech and data connect to intelligence use cases (public and private) effectively and ethically. We do this through:
Good data science is often hard to translate into good intelligence practice and even the most talented software dev needs help from a user to get things right. At Hex we've helped translate requirements for both, helping to structure data for optimum intelligence outputs and tailor tech platforms to suit intelligence workflows.
Tradecraft is how intelligencers turn information into intelligence. Quite often the gap between those intelligencers and the private vendor is that they cannot understand how to work the tech and/or data on offer into their existing tradecraft. At Hex we understand both sides well enough to bridge the gap. We've designed tradecraft to make best use of a wide array of tech and data types.
Private sector intelligence is beset by debate. From privacy concerns to ethical scraping of content, to the use of AI, the sector is littered with pitfalls that can impact both uptake and reputation. With strong practical and academic understanding of the subject, Hex can both help guide your organisation through those debates and work with your marketing team to help you actively engage in them.
Hex offers training on: Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) technique, intelligence process and ethics.
We can also help build and implement training programmes designed to be delivered to your user base and built around the tradecraft we helped generate.
