BAE Systems is launching a new Corporate Security Analysis service to assist companies with social risk monitoring and regional security analysis.
The analysis-on-demand service optimizes open source and social media feeds to detect malicious or inadvertent leaks of sensitive information and intellectual property, potential insider threats, social engineering attempts, smear campaigns, and other issues of concern.
Companies can also use the service to gauge a local population’s sentiment and gain a broader understanding of the geopolitical environments in which they operate.
“Many businesses have hardened their infrastructure against network intrusions but have yet to achieve advance warning of these attacks, or a complete understanding of who is behind them,” said Peder Jungck, vice president and chief technology officer of BAE Systems’ Intelligence & Security sector.
“Our analysts seamlessly fuse data from an abundance of streams and sources into clear and actionable reports that help corporate security teams protect their most valuable assets, whether they are foreign, domestic, or virtual” he added.
The Corporate Security Analysis service employs veteran intelligence analysts capable of navigating multiple layers of the web including traditional and social media, but also deep web forums, niche discussion boards, and file sharing spaces to identify activity of interest and potential impact to business operations.
