Any part of our Insight service can be customised and adapted to your needs, to provide credible, timely information based on our analysis of open-source data, ethically obtained and stored to an evidential standard.

We understand the critical importance of research tools and methodology and are always innovating, led by our in-house R&D team, to provide exactly what our clients need.

We have developed our own process to ensure we are blending breadth of source volume with the depth of case specificity, in exactly the right balance for our clients. This is also one of the many areas of our work informed by our Intelligence Cycle methodology.

The Intelligence cycle

In the world of intelligence, the concept of the ‘Intelligence Cycle’ is a well-known concept.

It is a closed loop in which six different stages – direction, collection, processing, analysis, dissemination, and feedback – represent the most effective way of processing information and turning it into actionable intelligence.

At Horus, we have our own version of this cycle, in which the process starts with the client requirements or input, before following the same pattern – direction, collection, processing (and analysis), and dissemination.

We also build into this process our principles of objectivity, accuracy, relevance, timeliness, and continuous review, so that the intelligence service we are delivering to our clients is of the highest quality, and as effective as possible, at all times.

Horus Analysis and Research Toolkit (HART)


We have our own dedicated system (Horus Analytical Research Toolkit – HART) to ensure our real-time collection and analysis of digital sources for our Insight services is as efficient and effective as possible.

The toolkit is used to harvest a vast range of sources on the internet to extremely high standards which can be adapted and tailored to specific, bespoke client needs in each case.
