Combatting Fraud and Monitoring Risk with Forensic Open Source Intelligence Solutions

We provide Open Source Intelligence Solutions to Financial Institutions, Insurance Companies and Debt Collectors. We enable them to Detect Fraud by Providing Instant Risk Scores and to Identify People including their Network using our proprietary Proven Forensic Technology.

Know Your Customer

Prevent criminal and fraudulent customers from entering your client base and stay compliant with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements. By using top-tier forensic technology in your Due Diligence process you are activating targeted data from the Internet and turning it into unique risk information.

Traditional and current KYC and AML practices have proven to be insufficient and regulators do not accept cursory customer due diligence or a degree of willful ignorance. Banks now risk tremendous reputational damage, huge fines and even the possibility of having their license revoked when they don't have thorough Customer Due Diligence and Anti- Money Laundering processes in place.

With our KYC-solution we bring top-tier technology from the world of Law Enforcement to the fraud-detection teams and systems of financial institutions. By using Open Source Intelligence technology, our solution makes all public available information actionable in order to find risk indicators like criminal activity, fraudulent behavior or any direct or indirect relation with people from sanction lists, pep-lists, and other watch lists from all over the world.

Especially in an increasingly competitive environment whereby the speed of bringing a customer on board is key, our solution can play an important role in facilitating and speeding up the client acceptance processes from several days to potentially just minutes.

Claim Fraud Analysis

Between 10 to 20% (depending on the region) of all reported insurance claims has a degree of fraud, as from an exaggeration of the damage or misrepresentation of stated facts to being a staged incident or complete false claim, sometimes organized by sophisticated criminal organizations. The Coalition Against Insurance Fraud estimates that U.S. insurers lose $80 billion annually to fraud. Claim fraud has become an integrated norm in many societies, partly driven by the low likelihood of being caught due to information asymmetry in the advantage of the claimant and costly investigations with relative low succession rate for insurance companies.

With our Claim-Analysis tool we bring top-tier technology from the world of Law Enforcement to the fraud-detection teams and systems of Insurance Companies. By using Forensic Open Source Intelligence technology, we investigate claims by verifying stated information with public online sources from all over the world, and investigate involved subjects to find any type of indication of criminal or fraudulent behavior or any suspicious connections within their network.

This enables insurance companies to automatically filter possible fraudulent claims in an effective way, which significantly reduces investigation costs, accelerates process times and decreases fraud losses.

Debt Collection

Around 80% of all individuals with debts that have been outstanding for sixty days or more are labeled "unreachable". The most common reasons are outdated contact details, illness or other means that prevent the debtor from responding to any form of communication. The implication is that society is left with a huge amount of debt which one way or another will be collectively paid by others.

Debt collection is the process of collection an amount that is owed by an individual who is not forthcoming in paying that debt. Our solution enables debt collecting companies to identify and locate debtors who are sometimes intentionally difficult to find. Via our Open Source Intelligence technology, we are able to find updated and additional contact information like phone numbers, physical and email addresses, Skype profiles and much more. Our specialized forensic technology, provides access to a broad range of online sources like phone directories, registers and a number of international sources. We are able customize our technology based on the type of organization and the location in order to be compliant with all applicable laws and regulations.

Our solution enables debt collectors to quickly gather and update current contact information of non-responding and defaulting debtors. The resulting information allows for a quicker collection process enabling the debt collector to collect the outstanding debt.
