Setting clear policies and guidelines allows the CI function to avoid pitfalls regarding the collection of information from primary sources, whether this is done by company employees or third-party organizations.
This webinar will present key insights we gathered during our benchmarking study and help our webinar participants understand how organizations can optimize their CI operations while working within defined guidelines. Particular attention will be paid to how CI groups are organized and its resources deployed, how CI groups work with legal groups to develop policies and guidelines, and what activities companies permit their CI organizations to undertake with either company employees or with third-party organizations.
