A military intelligence section established a more collaborative working environment with YOSE and Discovry
An uptick in the level of disinformation Paliscope was hired by a specialist in a military intelligence unit with a counter-intelligence mandate who was also responsible for detecting and investigating concerted disinformation campaigns by hostile foreign intelligence actors.
During a period of heightened geopolitical tensions, they observed an uptick in the level of disinformation circulating across social media from individuals claiming to be citizens of their country. Before establishing a relationship with Paliscope, they were wholly reliant on using outdated and non-secure means to identify and report disinformation campaigns.
Additionally, they had no means to work collaboratively by sharing investigative workloads between their team of six intelligence analysts. Solution
An implementation of YOSE across the organization As part of their daily routine, they actively pull raw data from open sources that they had been collecting over a substantial period of time – this included data obtained from instant messaging and social media.
However, they had no meaningful way to analyze this vast amount of data and use it to corroborate ongoing cases concerning disinformation. By establishing an effective relationship with Paliscope, they implemented YOSE across their organization, enabling their analysts to index vast amounts of raw data.
With YOSE fully operational within their organization, they could visualize all of the collected data and pull key pieces of information and intelligence concerning potential disinformation actors.
More significantly, they could connect dots between various individuals involved in spreading disinformation through instant messaging applications – this was achieved exclusively through YOSE’s own Chat Analytics feature. Overall, our journey with Paliscope has led to our team establishing a more collaborative working environment capable of reacting efficiently and effectively to threat actors associated with hostile foreign intelligence services. Not only do we work faster, but we are capable of securely collecting, processing, and disseminating intelligence to senior decision-makers and commanders. graphic_eq Major [Name Redacted], Officer Commanding of a Military Intelligence section
Was able to work more collaboratively
Equipped with Discovry, their team was now able to work collaboratively by using its built-in forensic browser to securely capture instances of disinformation being spread across social media.
They then used Discovry’s integration with YOSE to cross-reference their data with YOSE. At the same time, they had the capability to securely use Discovry’s built-in Tor browser to collect information of intelligence value and build a comprehensive target pack concerning disinformation actors.
