What does The OSINT GROUP do?

The OSINT GROUP can aggregate unlimited information sources, harvesting information from across 126 countries in 25 languages.

Our research software tools use an advanced content tagging system with more than 30 metadata tags and 380 categories to deliver hundreds of thousands of unduplicated real-time content items every day.

What does The OSINT GROUP do?Unique “Deep Web” Mining

The Deep Web is massive --

approximately 500 times greaterthan

that visible to conventional

search engines -- with much higher

quality throughout.

The simplest way to describe our technology is a

"directed-query engine."

It has other powerful features in results

qualification and classification, but it is this

ability to query multiple search sites directly

and simultaneously that allows Deep Web

content to be retrieved.

OSINT Collection Support to Federal Reserve (example)

A new aspect of financial systems stability threat activity is the emergence

of eastern European and Russian organized crime groups.

The economic situation of many high tech labs in these regions has provided

a rich pool of resources that are being exploited for many different types of criminal activity.

Specific areas of concern are the reverse engineering of hardware, software,

and access control devices and high-tech methods of disrupting information systems.

Moscow Times (Sep 8, 2008) reported:

"Many specialists became jobless over the last few years, and criminal groupings

took advantage of this. A criminal group, which specialized in hacking bank networks,

was arrested last year.

Its ringleaders were ordinary criminals with several convictions, but computer specialists

were on their payroll. The gang had worked out a special program for each electronic theft.

In this way, they misappropriated several billion rubles and had targeted

U.S. financial institutions.

into English for examination and review.

Analysis of Collected Materials

Ability to determine relevance of collected and translated materials as they relate to

financial threats.

Outreach Activities with Stakeholders

Ability to develop and conduct outreach and engagement strategies to national

and international financial communities to gather information and compile data/findings to

develop financial threat information.
