There are a large number of companies offering business research services across offshore destinations like India (which is the most favoured one), Malaysia, Philippines and several others. How can you ensure that you select the right offshore research partner?

Is your offshore research partnership in good hands?

Hello Varsha,

I am not a member of the CI India group and thus cannot respond to your thread, but I wished to respond nevertheless.

Just as intelligence needs must be determined for successful CI, key information must be selected for protection.  It is fruitless to try and protect everything, just like it is fruitless to try and “collect everything” about a target. 

The Key Intelligence Topic framework can be reverse-engineered and applied to protecting information.  John Nolan has written about this, and introduced the concepts of Key Protection Topics and Key Protection Requirements.
