About

The Daily Threat Brief was created by Bob Gourley, founder of Crucial Point LLC and Cognitio, and also the publisher of CTOvision.com. Bob remains our editor and publisher. The Threat Brief is an open source intelligence report modeled after the concept of the President’s Daily Brief (PDB).

Every day our analysts succinctly provide insights into global risk and security issues in ways that can reduce your personal and business risks and inform your strategic decision making.
