intelligence forum 2017

thursday 9 november 2017, Fraser Suites Sydney


The Australian Institute of Professional Intelligence Officers takes great pleasure in inviting you to participate in the Intelligence Forum, the final event for Intelligence 2017, at the Fraser Suites Sydney on Thursday 9 November 2017. The forum will bring together intelligence professionals from around Australia, the region and further afield and affords the opportunity to establish new contacts, network with peers and share insights into today’s topics, trends and innovations in the National Intelligence Community market.

AIPIO ( is the peak representative body for intelligence practitioners in Australia. Our goal is to establish and promote intelligence as a widely recognised profession in Australia, and our membership is drawn from a wide range of fields including government, national security, the armed forces, law enforcement, business, academia, the media, information technology and information service providers. 

The forum program will incorporate subthemes including:

Effective Engagement

In the information age, our practices remain human centred, relying on human relationships to ensure the right insights flow to the right people at the right time. However, we must become more anticipatory and collaborative in our approaches so that our social systems can keep pace with our technical systems. 

Technological Enablement

New intelligence systems and capabilities must be integrated to provide a ‘single pane of glass’ view of the operating environment, rather than proliferate silos. Promising technologies include collaboration tools, analytics, visualisation, and cognitive computing. 

Innovative Practices

We must leverage extensive technological enablement of intelligence to help us move away from familiar ways of working so as to be able to see, think, and act differently in the world. We can improve productivity by handling numerous forms of data across multiple lines of inquiry while linking different pieces of related information.
