this is one of the activities or businesses of stratfor
"Every few seconds, data picked up at surveillance points in major cities and landmarks across the United States are recorded digitally on the spot, then encrypted and instantaneously delivered to a fortified central database center at an undisclosed location to be aggregated with other intelligence. It’s part of a program called TrapWire and it's the brainchild of the Abraxas, a Northern Virginia company staffed with elite from America’s intelligence community.
The employee roster at Arbaxas reads like a who’s who of agents once with the Pentagon, CIA and other government entities according to their public LinkedIn profiles, and the corporation's ties are assumed to go deeper than even documented. The details on Abraxas and, to an even greater extent TrapWire, are scarce, however, and not without reason. For a program touted as a tool to thwart terrorism and monitor activity meant to be under wraps, its understandable that Abraxas would want the program’s public presence to be relatively limited. But thanks to last year’s hack of the Strategic Forecasting intelligence agency, or Stratfor, all of that is quickly changing."
So: those spooky new "circular" dark globe cameras installed in your neighborhood park, town, or city—they aren't just passively monitoring. They're plugged into Trapwire and they are potentially monitoring every single person via facial recognition"
the more documents and mails are being released from the 5 million (millions in the waiting) the more one is becoming alarmed about the way the company worked internally and how it really is the big private worldwide CIAlike operation (which they found amateurish and limited) that nobody knew about
when you go to the site you will think it is all about international analysis (what are spies otherwise doing) but behind the forefront we now see that all those people that are becoming contacts on conferences, publications and internet exchanges or freewheeling conversations with stratfor 'operatives' even if they had all other kinds of normal names (consultants, analysts, publisher, representative,.....) In some mails it even becomes clear that as internal information was their main business they used any method possible to get that information (in one mail the boss they have to use any method against their contacts to get it, financial, sexual, blackmail, threats, promises, whatever....)
this is a spy agency
and some of your employees may have been abused or pushed into giving or explaining internal information
for Belgium, there are public servants, diplomats, politicians and others on their lists (but they could have been just subscribers to their mailing list)
in any case, some-one in your organisation should sit down with the stratfor contacts and go through all the information (sometimes under sworn testimony)
* did you only receive stratfor email briefings and was that your only contact
* did you go to a conference organised by stratfor or with speakers from stratfor
* did they meet you and did you have a conversation and what was it about
* did they contact you by mail and can you give us all these emails
* what information - in full detail - did you give or send Stratfor and were you paid for it (in whatever form)
* when was the last time you had contact and what was it about
if you look into this dazzlepod database (you can search for a specific emailaddress, the one from your network for example gov.cn or even for a domainextension as .be, .nl,.... or a name in an emailaddress)
you will be surprised how many people were caught in the web, even if they not all were that all deep into the dark corners of their spyhole
if it sounds like spies and it looks like spies and it acts like spies you should treat it as ..... spies
and if their contacts were naïve you should tell them so
