A Different Approach
Where traditional international security institutions just see a collection of states, we see an interconnected set of systems. We focus on the underlying threats to global security: the illicit networks that operate across borders to destabilize communities, prevent development, and devastate the environment.
Data & Tech Innovation
We conduct data-driven, tech-powered investigations into the networks harming our world. Our cutting-edge data and technology capabilities allow us to harness the power of Publicly Available Information to map out entire transnational illicit systems — and identify precisely how to target them.
Global Impact Network
Innovation only goes so far without collaboration. Our global network of action-focused partners takes us from analysis to systemic impact. By building trusted partnerships with public, private, and civil society stakeholders, we work to create unified responses to illicit networks and ultimately undermine the motivating forces behind them.
