International Organization Of Private Intelligence Agencies
Global -Worldwide - International Intelligence Working For You!
Welcome To I.O.P.I.A.
We are currently restructuring I.O.P.I.A.
I.O.P.I.A is a Private International Intelligence Organization consisting of International Private Investigators and Private Intelligence Agencies throughout the world.
We have created a new Interactive Forum for our Members to share Information and discuss different issues in the field of International Intelligence and Private Investigations.
Members of I.O.P.I.A are recognized as International Intelligence Operators and our Organization is for the Private Investigators and other organizations that want to be part of an International Intelligence Group that is willing to assist other Members that want to learn more about the areas they work.
We hope to benefit your organizations from information that each member provides to this organization, i.e. your expert advise will be part of this site and this organization.
Intelligence (abbreviated int. or intel.) is not information, but the product of evaluated information, valued for its currency and relevance rather than its detail or accuracy —in contrast with "data" which typically refers to precise or particular information, or "fact," which typically refers to verified information.
Sometimes called "active data" or "active intelligence", these typically regard the current plans, decisions, and actions of people, as these may have urgency or may otherwise be considered "valuable" from the point of view of the intelligence-gathering organization.
Active intelligence is treated as a constantly mutable component, or variable, within a larger equation of understanding the secret, covert, or otherwise private "intelligence" of an opponent, or competitor, to answer questions or obtain advance warning of events and movements deemed to be important or otherwise relevant.
As used by intelligence agencies and related services, "intelligence" refers integrally to both, active data as well as the process and the result of gathering and analyzing such information, as these together form a cohesive network.
In a sense, this usage of "intelligence" at the national level may be somewhat associated with the concept of social intelligence —albeit one which is tied to localized or nationalist tradition, politics, law, and the enforcement thereof.
