How It Works
With a seasoned team of former law enforcement agents, analysts, and corporate experts, Prescient works with your organization to uncover the depth of the issue and contain the scope.

The client had recently learned that one of its volunteers had joined its internship program in order to covertly record members of the organization. A foreign media outlet published a video that included audio and footage of the organization’s leaders.
Using a now-defunct social media profile and the name of a possible co-worker, Prescient’s
analysts identified multiple social media groups based in the subject’s home country. Members within these groups use aliases for organizing events, giving interviews, and blogging. Prescient’s analysts compared dates, locations, photographs, as well as local public records, in order to identify the individuals leading these groups.
Extensive social media discovery and research in traditional media databases revealed the subject’s brother previously worked for the foreign media outlet that created the video; the subject and his brother also collaborated on similar media projects. Prescient’s analysts delivered a report that identified the subject’s political agenda and means of disseminating information.
Prescient identified the subject’s network of individuals, locations, and organizations in the U.S. and abroad, thereby providing the client with valuable intelligence to use in future legal proceedings. It also ensured the client was prepared to address claims that the subject might make about its organization.
