In today’s dynamic business environment, a competitive edge via exclusive insight is more valuable than ever! Having an ace up your sleeve means the difference between millions of dollars and your organization’s trajectory. With origins in the U.S. Intelligence Community, Reveille Advisors specializes in the execution and collection of corporate and business intelligence in a variety of manners.
One of the most effective methods of acquiring corporate intelligence is in the form of human intelligence (HUMINT) sources. These are key individuals that we develop organic relationships with through social techniques and clandestine activities.
Working within the confines and legal jurisdiction of your market, we’ll identify, develop, and eventually, leverage these third-party targets for information that will provide game-changing insight for your organization. This tactic can require a more long-term engagement depending on the scope of your needs, which we’re more than happy to facilitate.
We need to mention something about working with human sources – we will never intimidate, hack, or harass any target for our clients. Additionally, we can only record conversations that we’re a party to. That being said, so long as it’s lawful, we will utilize all tradecraft options to complete your objectives with absolute discretion.
It always surprises us how far-reaching the internet has become. While alarming, it is helpful if you’re an open-source intelligence (OSINT) investigator. Including the dark web, which is completely legal to audit but often avoided due to a lack of familiarity, the layers of data that are publicly-available are astounding.
Between public records, arrest records, private party databases made public, vendor archives, public contracts, online communities, social media, property records, FOIA requests, and more, you can glean a lot of information that’s hidden in not-so-plain sight. This requires more than simply Googling someone, which is why our experienced OSINT collectors are needed.
We collect, audit, and then translate all the information we’ve learned into a comprehensive, yet easy-to-digest, intelligence pack. Through our documentation and methodologies, you’ll be able to see where and when we collected the information and navigate a “road map” of all potential sources of interest.
OSINT is used in a variety of ways from private investigations into missing person cases to complex fraud investigations and due diligence. There are no limitations to how OSINT can be utilized for your benefits.
Our corporate investigators are well-versed in clandestine reconnaissance and surveillance; both for government and private sector clients. This unique service allows us to extend our research past the digital realm and pivot to in-person operations.
You can envision our corporate surveillance services similar to what a private investigator would do – we document and perform surveillance on parties or locations securing information that’s beneficial for your use. Whether the goal is to gather evidence or simply understand their pattern of life, we will accomplish it. Examples regularly include
The above list is hardly exhaustive as this tactical service can be applied to a wide variety of situations and nearly all scenarios.
Significant business decisions, such as new partnerships, joint ventures, new vendors, acquisitions, and expanding into new markets, can produce questions that are difficult to answer.
Who are the key players behind the company and what are their likely motives? What are their influences, both known and undeclared? Who’s the ultimate benefactor of ownership and does that change the situation? What’s their history – both professional and personal, and how could that history have negative implications for us? Is the risk worth the potential reward and what’s our liability if we proceed?
At Reveille Advisors, our investigators remove the uncertainty for your team by providing comprehensive analyses of business targets. Whether you’re looking for micro or macro implications, we’ll be ready to provide you with the appropriate awareness and confidence to avoid fraud, corruption, and costly mistakes.
We understand the gray area of the world better than most, but at the end of the day, there are certain actions by various actors that cross both ethical and legal lines. This could be utilizing ineligible labor groups, employee misconduct, violations of professional boards and licensures, deceptive marketing, predatory scams, and more. Some examples we can share publicly that we were involved with include:
The bottom line is that if you think you’re being taken advantage of or you can no longer look the other way, give us a call.
Are you a venture capitalist looking for new, but off-the-radar, investors? Maybe an executive who needs a specific piece of information to accomplish a critical business objective? What if you’re looking for potential allies or partners for a public policy campaign? At Reveille Advisors, we know how to identify, target, and nurture human sources for diverse reasons and goals. While we know that sounds quite ambiguous, that is the nature of the game with this service, as it’s almost always very discreet and customized for each client’s mission.
We offer 30-minute consultations for you to share your challenges and we’ll determine what solutions are available. As always, discretion is provided and secure communication options are available. We’ll speak with you soon!
