PROXY INTELLIGENCE AND CLASSIFICATION OF INTELLIGENCE ACTORS IN THE EXAMPLE OF THE USA

The article provides a definition of proxy intelligence, a classification of intelligence actors in the example of the United States. The activities of the main US intelligence actors are briefly considered. The intelligence service is defined as a service that is provided by both state intelligence actors and non-state actors.

Purpose: to give a definition of proxy intelligence, to determine the meaning of "intelligence service" in the political process, and to classify intelligence actors using the example of the United States. Briefly review the activities of the main US intelligence actors.

Methodology: the analysis of the activities of both US state intelligence actors and non-state actors was carried out. The history of the interaction of nonstate intelligence actors with state intelligence actors and authorities has been studied. The intelligence product proposed by the authors was studied. Specific organizations involved in US intelligence activities have been studied. The paper uses methods of studying documents, content analysis, and a comparative method. The methodological basis of the work is the source study analysis.

Result: thanks to the study, it was found that the United States in its political activities actively resorts to the assistance of non-state intelligence actors, and private intelligence companies in particular. Their role, contribution, and significance in the development of foreign policy decisions are established. The "intelligence service" is systematized precisely as a service provided by intelligence actors to their customers.

Practical significance: the findings became the basis for the development of practical recommendations for the Russian authorities on building communication and business relations with Russian private intelligence companies.

Based on the results obtained, a curriculum and a course of lectures in the direction of "Political Science," a master's program "Information and Hybrid Wars" at Moscow State University were prepared.
