Social Media Monitoring and Screening
Make informed decisions.
Open-Source Intelligence or OSINT is the collection of information, images, or posts by or about an individual or business that is publicly available on the internet. OSINT can be used by a variety of clients looking to make smart or ethical decisions in partnerships or hiring.
Social media monitoring or SOCINT is intelligence gathered on an individual or business from social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, LinkedIn and others. Social media monitoring is typically performed by a business or organization in the efforts to protect their reputation, brand or to monitor certain employee’s statements.
Both open-source and social media information give clients the competitive intelligence used to make important conclusions and business decisions in a variety of situations.
Why hire a private investigator for open-source intelligence, social media monitoring and screening?
Hiring an outside expert to conduct and report on your research helps mitigate risk to your organization. Private Investigators have access to non-public, but private search tools that can quickly gather and organize business intelligence from thousands of sources, saving you time and money. An OSINT trained investigator can rapidly conduct a social media background check or perform social media screening for employment.
Social media screening is best performed by a third party specializing in competitive intelligence research, such as Blue Eagle Security Solutions LLC. A private investigative agency has the resources, databases, and expertise to provide accurate SOCINT and OSINT for your business solutions. Internet evidence or meta data is collected in a form that will hold up in a court of law, in the event of litigation.
Expert level OSINT and SOCINT is key to success in any due diligence or competitive intelligence investigation.
