Clear and actionable intelligence
Information only becomes intelligence when it’s actionable.
We provide services tailored to your unique situation, working in close coordination with senior leadership and internal teams. This could be market entry exercises, supply chain analysis, enhanced due diligence, asset tracing, red flag checks, or assessing the intent and capability of particular risk and threat groups.
Our team of consultants originate from a range of backgrounds — including operational intelligence, law enforcement, and academia. So you can be sure our intelligence is insightful, lawful, and corroborated by a range of sources. Coupled with our industry-leading analysis tools, we help organisations around the world meet the most sensitive and daunting corporate challenges.
Social media analytics
The use of social media analytics for intelligence and resilience is central to our work. The ubiquity of mobile devices with high-quality photography and video means more information is captured and recorded on social networks in a few seconds than the rest of human history combined until 2000. We use this data to provide our clients with tailored intelligence reporting.
Wherever you are on the planet, we use advanced social media analytics tools, such as Dataminr, to augment our intelligence collection. Our consultants listen for significant events — such as terrorist attacks or nuclear weapons tests — to activate crisis management teams.
By utilising big data to monitor geopolitically significant situations, we can see how they evolve in real-time — allowing you to take a proactive stance towards emerging threats.
Open and closed source media monitoring
We perform open and closed source media monitoring of geopolitical situations in multiple languages, including Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin, and Russian.
Supported by security-cleared translators and interpreters, this gives our consultants unrivalled insight into events as they unfold within a particular area and how these developments are perceived by local populations. Our clients gain a deeper understanding of their operating environment, enabling them to quantify potential threats to their people and operations autonomously.
A range of advanced tools and datasets allow us to carry out intelligence monitoring in a way that is tailored, efficient, and cost-effective.
Human source enquiries
The internet has fundamentally changed the way we gather and analyse information. But human source intelligence is timeless and remains central to everything we do.
Human source enquiries regularly provide the ‘aha’ moment, connecting disparate components of the intelligence picture so they can be corroborated using open channels and social media sources, or other advanced techniques.
With extensive experience managing source networks in both developed and developing countries, our security consultants provide you with context, perspective, and the type of actionable insights that simply aren’t available through any other method.
Advanced intelligence gathering techniques
Satellite imagery, earth sensing infrastructure, machine learning: advances in technology over the last 5 years have revolutionised the way we work.
Aided by our relationships with some of the most comprehensive satellite constellation operators in the market, our consultants have instant access to high-quality static and video imagery. This is vital — whether you're analysing potential opportunities in a remote market or evaluating the geopolitical situation of a region in the aftermath of a major incident or crisis.
We also lead the way in applying machine learning techniques to intelligence gathering and analysis. For example, using image classifiers to identify relevant online intelligence or face comparison tools to focus on specific lines of inquiry during an investigation.
