Our Mission:

Our History:

Talos was born of a desire provide truly objective analysis, and to facilitate client access to and understanding of analytical products which are directly relevant to client operations.  Despite our comparatively short history as a company, Talos analysts have extensive experience in Iraq, and remain adept at evaluating the ever-changing climate. Talos has rapidly attained a sustainable and expanding foothold in the security and analysis market, as a testament to the value of the company’s sound principles and focus on very simply doing what we do best. We are a US-based company centered around an international core team of professional analysts who understand industry-wide challenges in providing high quality and objective information and analysis specific to Iraq. The use of an online platform and professional analytical core as the driving force for the company, allows Talos to offer services at an attractive and competitive price point.

Our People:

Each Talos analyst has a lengthy history operating in diverse security environments, and substantial experience in conducting in-depth tactical, political, economic, social and/or strategic Iraq analysis.  Our locally employed specialists are capable of collecting information from a wide range of Arabic and Kurdish-language open source outlets as well as local sources, with the company focused on providing true countrywide locally-sourced information, in context, with particular focus in the northern and southern regions where operations can often be particularly challenging. 

The Talos team is further supported by more specialized consultants knowledgeable in economics and political analysis.  Together, our cohesive architecture provides Talos the ability to efficiently respond to our clients’ values and operations throughout a spectrum of developments, each assessed to have a direct, indirect, and peripheral impact to very specific interests and goals.
