Executive Partnership for Integrated Collaboration (EPIC) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit intelligence and collaboration organization that utilizes open-source intelligence to serve as an intermediary between private sector companies and public sector organizations. Through collaboration with the public sector and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, EPIC connects with companies, large and small, to collaborate and share information about threats to our national security. Our think-tank approach focuses on mitigating these threats through the use of innovative solutions. In addition to creating partnerships through collaboration and vital information sharing, EPIC fosters growth in the next generation of aspiring analysts by teaching the collection and analysis of open-source intelligence to university students at the EPIC facility in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Our work connects the public and private sectors together. Businesses of all sizes play a large role in sharing information to identify threats. Information also comes from the public to the private sector to utilize intelligence about existing threats to create more resilient systems and processes. This allows for EPIC to help make our nation resilient by helping our government through our collective intelligence gathering in order to give back to the companies and organizations that make our economy as strong as it is today. In addition to supporting our nation as a whole, EPIC gives back to our local community by training undergraduate university students in the collection and analysis of open-source intelligence. The invaluable experience that these interns gain can be used in both the public and private sectors in intelligence or analytical roles.
