Our Platform, People & Passion

A fighter jet is no good without a good pilot. That’s a similar relationship that our analysts have with our platform.


Our in-house developed methodologies and proprietary software are analyst driven and were designed by those who have protected the national interests of the United Kingdom in roles within the government, law enforcement, fraud prevention, cyber security, and the military.


When we combine these experiences with those from the commercial, financial, legal and the IT realm we find ourselves able to expand our reach beyond others in addition to providing the strategic insights, plans and techniques that HR departments and senior executives need to navigate the inherent complexities of compliance and regulation. All within expedited and appropriate business time frames.

Given the vast quantity of information openly available online, in addition to the analysts our platform uses machine learning and natural language processing to go significantly beyond ‘Googling’ a name or search term and therefore ensuring name entity resolution particularly with regards to identifying and locating social media accounts. This enables our results to be accurate, comprehensive, meaningful and to provide insights that other systems continually fail to find. Moreover, we are continuously expanding our reach, scope and reliability by producing new tools and processes to ensure that we consistently stay one step ahead of online trends, platforms, breaches, and environments.

From the following sources, we collect targeted and relevant information only in accordance with the Equality Act and Data Protection Act and never invade the privacy of an individual:


  • Databases – international, regional and local including global compliance, watch list, sanction, PEP, regulatory records, litigation and legal research, identification of professional affiliations and corporate and company registration
  • International adverse media search (in English & local language)
  • Open source web search of all publicly available sources – search engines; blogs; social media etc.
  • Research into a company and/or an individual’s history, reputation, and personal and professional background and connections.
Whether it be in-depth reports, network visuals, risk assessment matrices, raw data, personnel profiles, continuous monitoring and alert system, or dynamic risk assessments our outputs will provide actionable insights to enable you to make informed decisions.
