Counterintelligence, Privacy, and Tech

Kit Perez is the co-author of Basics of Resistance: The Practical Freedomista, Book I, a primer on resistance methods. She’s also a counterintelligence and statement analyst, as well as a longtime political writer on national security, intelligence and privacy/tech topics. She holds a BA in Counterintelligence, a Masters in Intelligence Studies, and specializes in deception detection, HUMINT, and digital surveillance issues. She has written two academic papers on an original concept called MXINT, a hybrid form of intelligence that merges aircraft system data with ‘soft’ data gained from personal interaction with airlines; MXINT predicts when and what maintenance issues can be expected on a commercial aircraft. An advanced form of MXINT is in development and use today.

After nearly a decade in Seattle, Kit packed up and walked away from her corporate life, choosing instead to move to the American Redoubt. Living in the mountains of western Montana, Kit and her gunsmith husband have a small homestead, where they raise a variety of farm animals, grow their own food, and work toward total sustainability.

Kit composes for piano and violin in her spare time.

Using Past Events as Intelligence Case Studies

One of the most important -- and most ignored -- parts of any process or action is the post-event report and analysis. Whether you call it an AAR, a 3 up/3 down, or just "going over what happened," it's one of the best ways to parse out a given event. What worked?...

7 People You Don’t Want in Your Group

I get a lot of questions about recruiting. How to do it, when to do it, when not to. While the best way to answer those questions is in an actual class (and there are still a few spots open in the webinar class I'm teaching on it), there are some hard and fast rules...
