Posted: 15th October 2021

Our guest this week is Harry Kemsley. He’s president of national security and government at defense intelligence organization, Janes. Prior to joining Janes, he spent 25 years in the Royal Air Force.

Harry Kemsley is author of a recent opinion piece published in The Hill, titled "In OSINT We Trust?" In it, he makes the case that many intelligence organizations around the world would do well to increase their use of open source intelligence. To do that, there are cultural issues regarding the reliance on classified sources that may need to be overcome, but in the end, he believes the benefits are worthwhile.
