FIRSTSight™ Predictive Open-Source Intelligence
- People know things – and when they know, they talk.
- Today, people talk on social media. Initial threats or risk behaviors are frequently shared or observed on social media.
- Social Media is not random; it’s targeted. Most social media messages provide specific information about people, organizations or events. Because they are targeted, they can and do convey useful intelligence that can be used to identify threats before they become crises.
- What happens tomorrow is almost certainly on social media today.
How many times – after a deadly weapon violence event – have we read news that describes missed behavioral signals, the cry for help expressed beforehand by a perpetrator? While there is no guarantee that every threat or warning sign will be detected, open-source, intelligence monitoring plays a critical role in the safety and security of your most critical assets – your people.
Firestorm strives to identify threatening messages before they become actions. Our experts have extensive experience as former agents of the U.S. Secret Service, the leading safety and security experts in the world.
