Definition Edit

Forensic-enabled intelligence (FEI) is

[t]he intelligence resulting from the integration of scientifically examined materials and other information to establish full characterization, attribution, and the linkage of events, locations, items, signatures, nefarious intent, and persons of interest.[1]

Overview Edit

Forensic-enabled intelligence

helps accurately identify networked and complex threats and attributes them to specific incidents and activities. The effort is often critical in supporting the targeting process. FEI can identify and determine the source of origin of captured materials. Accurate site documentation of incidents or events, material and structural analysis, and supporting data and information from the various forensic processes and techniques provide valuable data and facilitate adjusting friendly tactics and modifying equipment to enhance protection.[2]
