Data Abyss Update: New Affiliates Search Capability

Data Abyss Update: We launched a new Affiliates capability. Affiliates allows users to search and filter on any direct author affiliations to identify individuals with multiple positions.

Data Abyss has been specifically developed for Research Security and Knowledge Security programs. Research Security defines safeguarding the research enterprise against the misappropriation of research and development to the detriment of national and economic security, related violations of research integrity, and foreign government interference. Knowledge Security entails mitigating the risks of espionage, unwanted knowledge transfers, intellectual property theft, data leakage and the misuse of dual-use technology.

Our platform provides exquisite S&T data analytics for risk management organizations involved in research security threat awareness, counterintelligence, malign foreign influence, insider threat monitoring, export control, and hybrid warfare to protect U.S. and NATO strategic interests and national security.

Our platforms, software, and data-as-a-service capabilities collect, analyze, label, and visualize data on People, Places, Publications, Organizations, Technologies, Funding, and Social profiles with risk analysis. Our capabilities leverage natural language processing, natural language understanding, and a suite of data analytics and visualization tools to transform raw data into actionable risk-based intelligence.

Academic and research institutions need to know if there staff hold and maintain positions with foreign entities if receiving federal funding or have access to sensitive data or technologies.

We are working on capability features to allow users to automatically identify individuals who holds multiple positions, the ability to pivot/filter on risk levels, and advanced search options to assess organization relations, funding, and technologies.

For the Intelligence and Counterintelligence Community this could be a solution to leverage for finding/searching for unique individuals that are dual hatted in the academic and defense ecosystems. Often times these individuals could also be in a corporate position.
