In her latest op-ed for CPO Magazine, 4iQ CEO Monica Pal explores adversary intelligence and discusses the benefits of uncovering the real identities behind criminal activities.

To keep up with modern adversaries, it is important, according to Ms. Pal, to understand the source of the attack.
Informed decision-making begins with uncovering the real identities behind criminal activities – a reliable and modern approach to crime fighting. The conversation shifts from what happened or how it happened and draws attention to who made this happen and why.
