Leveraging Open Source Intelligence for Safety & Security

Many organizations are embracing the Internet as a powerful tool for researching and preventing safety incidents. The intelligence developed through effective research of online intelligence can have a significant positive impact on safety operations. However, the use of Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) poses both an opportunity and a challenge for organizations: the ever increasing volume of information can be staggering and therefore difficult to manage.

NC4 Signal™ is an OSINT tool that is designed to filter through the endless flow of information across the web, and presents you with a customized stream of rich, relevant data in real-time. NC4 Signal provides your security teams with the ability to leverage OSINT in developing intelligent insight. Delivered through the Microsoft Azure Government cloud, it is available anywhere, anytime from any web-enabled device.

The sharing of information and the posting of images and videos on the Internet provides unparalleled insights into events as they unfold, allowing organizations to detect issues and react accordingly. Information can be filtered based on information needs, visualized in maps and lists, and then integrated into strategic, tactical, and operational decision-making to ensure optimal results. NC4 Signal™ helps you gather information from anywhere in the world:            

  • A street address, city or state; a stadium or other landmarks
  • Research topics, words, and phrases
  • Look into activity and developments as they unfold
  • Identify current trends or research historical data
