Our intelligence community research techniques make the difference in empowering you to make business decisions with confidence, while giving you the most bang for your buck.
What is Intelligence-Based Analysis?
Inspired by our collective experience gathering intelligence for national security, government, and law enforcement clients, we’ve adapted Intelligence Community best practices to strengthen the quality of our research when clarifying your complex risks.
What are some examples?
A visualization tool used by investigators to map out complicated relationships between people and companies.
Words of Estimative Probability
WEPs are words like “verified,” “highly likely,” or “unlikely” that convey degrees of confidence in key analytic findings.
Open Web & Social Media Reviews
Just using databases won’t cut it. Connecting the dots in web & social media sources enhance the quality of research.
We’re turning the traditional investigator lifecycle on its head…
Traditional investigators jump straight to “boots-on-the-ground” work before assessing which leads are promising and which are a waste of time. By conducting as much research as possible in our office first, we give our clients the option of escalating services only when needed. If a “boots-on-the-ground” engagement moves forward, our investigators then have a road map that allows them to conduct their work more efficiently and saves our clients time and money.

The Prescient Comply Portal
Our proprietary workflow manager eliminates the hassle of email when requesting new reports and enables multiple members of your team to review finished investigations and track key milestones.
A Constellation of Database Resources
Given data quality issues, we never rely on a single data stream for our reports. With access to multiple, diverse database resources, we’re able to cross-reference info for absolute reporting accuracy.
Cutting-Edge Monitoring Tools
We’re always on the look-out for emerging technology to boost our research capabilities. Most recently, we’ve employed advanced social media monitoring software to broaden our deep & dark web screening abilities.
3. Reporting that doesn’t make you work for insights…
We won’t bog you down with endless details and irrelevant fluff. With our Bottom-Line-Up-Front approach, we present quick-hit insights at the beginning of our reports to save you time and energy in understanding your business risks. All of our reports include:
An Executive Summary
…that summarizes the most important information and any “red flags” up-front. If this is all you had time to read, then you’ll be good to go.
…that draw your attention to any derogatory information discovered during the course of an investigation and allow for easy referencing.
…of the raw data collected during the investigative process. We also reference specific page numbers in our analysis to make reading easier.
