Stratfor is a geopolitical intelligence and advisory firm founded in 1996 when a small group of political scientists and entrepreneurs moved their project, The Center for Geopolitical Studies at Louisiana State University, into the private sector (website). Stratfor has three offerings: Worldview, Threat Lens, and Advisory Services. Worldview, an in-depth geopolitical intelligence platform provides quarterly, yearly and decade-out forecasts of global trends and events. Threat Lens provides key global security insights via a single, interactive, threat dashboard based on which countries, topics, and content types you want to see. Lens analyzes and forecasts security risk spanning Criminal Activity, Terrorism and Insurgency, Industrial Espionage, and Business Continuity. In 2019, Stratfor launched Stratfor Worldview Enterprise that allows organizations to map and monitor geopolitical risk via analytical tools that aid in anticipating areas in the world where operations are at the greatest risk.
