There are hundreds of companies offering due diligence and investigative services.
All of their websites look nearly identical. A majority of them are offering the same exact services. Many claim to be “the best” or “the premier” provider of these services.
From the sole proprietor private investigators to the bloated and bureaucratic, top-heavy firms, there is one single common denominator – they all tend to rely, almost exclusively, on the same few commercially available databases. And they all tend to essentially cut-and-paste this data into a pleasant looking final product. Unanalyzed raw data is being delivered to their clients as fact.
Exclusive reliance on databases is a serious problem and a potential liability for the end user. As our intelligence analysts like to say regarding databases: Garbage In…Garbage Out (GIGO). Databases are flawed and riddled with inaccuracies. As big data grows, so does the level of inaccuracies. The fog of data overload is thick and to navigate it properly requires true professional intelligence analysis.
At CIP we bring an analytical rigor unmatched by any other firm. For our team of intelligence professionals, data acquisition and information gathering is just the beginning. We collate, validate and evaluate the collected data and information to confirm/deny its utility and relevance. Our analysts work to ensure accuracy and completeness in satisfying our clients’ objectives. CIP’s analytical methodology and structured analytic techniques guide our analysts who are skilled at uncovering and examining complex patterns and identifying red flags and early warning indicators.
