IAT's new program is designed to provide our clients a variety of unique analytic methods and tools to increase insight and understanding, and/or facilitate the targeting of illicit networks and finance.

A wide range of recent studies estimate that the Illicit funding generated by criminal activity equals approximately 3.6% of the global GDP or somewhere in the vicinity of $2 trillion US. “Bad behaviors” such as, the drug trade, counterfeiting of goods and currency, human & wildlife trafficking, money laundering, fraud, and a host of other activities cause incredible damage to the world’s economy and financial systems and fuel a variety of criminal and terror activities. These behaviors and the damage they cause demand immediate and sustained engagement from a highly skilled and constantly learning investigative and analytic cadre. In recognition of this need, Innovative Analytics and Training, LLC is formally announcing its Illicit Networks & Counter Threat Finance (IN & CTF) service offering, effective immediately.

The program is designed to provide our clients, including: analysts, examiners, investigators, compliance officers, and others, a variety of unique analytic methods and tools to increase insight and understanding, and/or facilitate the targeting of illicit networks and finance. Illicit networks exist at local, state, national, and transnational levels. Threat finance and criminal network operations have common elements and indicators that can be identified, measured, and countered even as they change and adapt. IAT’s highly experienced team provides education, training, and consulting support to improve detection and countermeasure development against the networks as they raise, move, store, and use the revenues created.
