Lessons learned and best practices: 2013–2014 Identity Theft and Its Nexus to Illicit Activity Team
The purpose of this document is to capture best practices and lessons learned identified by the Identity Theft (IDT) and Its Nexus to Illicit Activity Team during its participation in the fourth and fifth iterations (2013 & 2014) of the Intelligence Community Analyst–Private Sector Partnership Program (ICAPP) sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis (DHS I&A). In this program, experienced government analysts collaborate with industry experts in an unclassified setting to study targeted intelligence priorities for a period of 6 months. The industry experts receive no financial compensation. This document describes the process the IDT Team applied in each year of the program, summarizes lessons learned from this effort to guide future teams, recommends minor improvements to inform the program sponsors, and describes the value of the program for different audiences.
