DigitalStakeout social media threat analytics enable law enforcement to analyze social media data in a manner that drastically reduces false positives from traditional social media monitoring and increases the efficiency and effectiveness of law enforcement. This capability will provide law enforcement an essential tool in using social media as a source of intelligence to ensure the safety of “soft targets” such schools, malls, and events & provide better visibility into violent events such as terror attack or an active shooter scenario. The capability also addresses the need for law enforcement to address privacy concerns, adhere to social media policy and comply with regulations such as 28 CFR Part 23.
“Just because social media data is 'open source' or considered 'public domain,' it doesn’t mean law enforcement can or should monitor this data without purpose and procedure. Social media data must be monitored 'lawfully' to assure the protection of individuals and groups’ privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties,” said Adam Mikrut, Founder & Chief Security Strategist at DigitalStakeout Inc.
DigitalStakeout’s social media threat analytics focus law enforcement on specific scenarios that identify & locate persons of interest, identify criminal activity, and yield actionable intelligence that enables crime prevention or more effective incident response.
“Whether law enforcement monitors social media by keyword, hashtag, screen name, geo-location or any other supported social media search by the DigitalStakeout platform, discoveries are prioritized for law enforcement to discover relevant information for a purpose—quickly, easily, and most importantly accurately,” added Mr. Mikrut.
DigitalStakeout’s social media threat analytics capability is restricted for law enforcement use only. To schedule a detailed briefing, please contact DigitalStakeout at 800-840-6435 or at info(at)digitalstakeout(dot)com or visit DigitalStakeout at http://www.digitalstakeout.com.
