Using OSINT to Detect Sanctioned Entities and Persons



People and enterprises that have been sanctioned will often create alternative profiles and hidden channels. Regulatory measures in Europe and the US have placed an increasing burden of responsibility on corporates, their officers and agents to take active measures to ensure that they do not interact with such parties. However, professional “sanction” databases do not go much beyond stating the relevant name and address. So, how can you be sure that you are not trading with a known associate or offshore subsidiary of a sanctioned party? Open Source Intelligence, or “OSINT” for short, is a well-proven and much used methodology used by intelligence agencies. It was devised over time for the purpose of uncovering relevant data by carrying out structured searches of all publicly available information. Such data can be in the form of words or numbers, text, image, audio, or video located on the web or in social media; it can be discovered via a conversation or phone-call. In this SanctionsAlert.com webinar, our sanctions expert will discuss the growing trend of using OSINT as part of your compliance duties and how to effectively discover relevant facts and data about sanctioned parties that they might prefer you didn’t know. Our experts will discuss:
  • What are OSINT technologies and methodologies, as well as how you can use these tools to quickly and effectively discover relevant facts about sanctioned parties;
  • Understanding the difference between information discovery in the surface web vs. the deep web;
  • How to search across three distinct dimensions of information: static content, edited content and dynamic content, as well as how to make such searches in almost any human language; and
  • What is structured search and how to create effective ‘Boolean’ search strings to make the best use of enforced term operators and field type searches.
