Intelligence Standards

There was a time when we had the International Standards Organization (ISO) intereseted in possibly creating an ISO series for intelligence as a means of helping the eight tribes of intelligence do more information-sharing and sense-making together.  That died in part because standards kill military-industrial-intelligence sweetheart contracts that are not in compliance and no not want to be in compliance–exclusive “single point” lock-in is the Holy Grail for those who abuse the public trust.  Standards are right up there with transparency as being threats to the status quo.
