About The Soufan Group
The Soufan Group (TSG) is a global intelligence and security consultancy that helps clients in the public and private sectors enhance their ability to identify and assess national and international challenges and successfully operate in high-risk, high-opportunity environments.
Headquartered in New York, with representation in Chicago, Washington, D.C., Boston, London, Doha, and Singapore, we focus on the most important geostrategic challenges of our time, addressing existing fault lines and anticipating emerging trend lines. We enable and support informed strategic and tactical decisions that maximize opportunity and minimize risk.
Our team brings together uniquely qualified, highly decorated officers with deep experience in the intelligence sector (FBI, CIA, MI5, MI6), the military, law enforcement, and government and with firmly rooted relationships in these agencies and services and in international, federal, state, and local governance. We are fluent in the cultures and languages of the Middle East, China, Europe, Southeast Asia, and the Americas.
We have been stationed in and have served in conflict zones in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, and Syria and in centers of policy and practice including New York, Washington, D.C., The Hague, Brussels, London, and Singapore.
We are authors, academics, and advisors to nations, to world-leading institutions including the United Nations (UN) and the European Union (EU), and to private sector clients. We have testified before Congress and are regarded as a source of truth and expertise on the subjects of global security, terrorism, extremism, white supremacy, disinformation, and malign actors. Our experts provide regular commentary on global security challenges to national and international news outlets including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, the BBC, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, CNBC, 60 Minutes, The Times of London, the Guardian, Der Spiegel, and Straits Times, and our work is covered and quoted widely.
