Business security

Economic security service is a complex department within a commercial company whose main goals are:

  • Revealing external and internal threats by controlling other departments' activities;
  • Collecting, processing and analyzing incoming and outcoming information from diverse sources and other departments;
  • Creating a mechanism similar to an "early warning system" helping to reveal prerequisites for hidden and evident threats;
  • Securing passive economic protection during current company's activities and active protection in case of hidden and evident threats;
  • Creating business references (dossiers) and maintaining a single database on persons, organizations, competitors, partners and contractors;
  • Generating detailed textual and graphic reports for executives illustrating main events taking place around the company;
  • Control over products/services distribution (issuing loan, etc).
Proposed complex solution on a basis of the Semantic Archive system will allow to automate the basic steps of a company's information and analytical activities:

Automated monitoring of Internet resources

As Internet has intensified its role in economic and political life of any state, it is necessary to pay close attention to this source of information.

Internet media, websites of competitors, partners, contractors, state offices and so on - all these sources of information have to be monitored in order to keep track of any changes in partner or rival companies, appointments and retirements, tenders, etc.

There are 2 Internet-robots for automated data acquisition provided in the Semantic Archive complex. They help minimize manual labor of an analyst letting him concentrate on processing and analysis of information.

Automated extraction of objects and facts

The value of analytical work is extremely high today. Preparing analytical references on some investigated topic has to be the only task done manually by an analyst.

The process of writing analytical documentation intends studying key processes taking place inside a company and in the particular field of economy. It is important not only to collect the articles, but also process and analyze them, extracting key objects, facts and ties between them so that you can trace the chains of connections.

In order to optimize the analyst's work the Semantic Archive system provides means of extracting objects and facts in fully automated or manual mode, depending on the task. The key feature of the system is not just extracting an object or a fact as a fragment of a document, but also appointing them a suitable type (person, organization, purchase/sale, shareholder, tender, kinship, etc). This will help to create an integrated and structured database on persons, organizations, events, projects, etc.

Unification and conversion of many databases and databanks into single format

Almost all economic security services keep special-purpose databases on objects and facts of interest. In most cases they are represented by a set of folders with files of different format, which makes it difficult to search comprehensively through them. In order to optimize the work of the analyst services it is necessary to unify all available databases so that one can search through the whole information array.

There is also a special module that comes with the Semantic Archive complex - it provides comprehensive search through all existing databases and a universal converter allowing to convert databases to a single format for further unification into a single data array.

The key feature of the system itself and the converter as well is functioning on the modern MSSQL platform thanks to which the system can be integrated with all systems used in a company.

Automated visualization of knowledge in the form of textual and graphic reports

The final stage of analytical work is usually generating reports based on processing and analysis of collected data and its transformation to knowledge.†

One of the main tasks of Semantic Archive and related systems developers is automation of this process. It is caused by the fact that an analyst has to waste up to 80% of his working hours on manual generation of reports.

Semantic Archive information analysis system automates almost all stages of generating textual and graphic reports of any complexity. Primary analytical reports required by executives and needed for one's own understanding of the problem and situation around the object of interest are:

- business references or structured documents containing basic data on an object/fact of interest,
- semantic schemes or graphic records (dossiers) on persons, organizations and related facts,
- digests of documents and events.

If necessary, the system reports can be adapted to any pattern required for the customer's goals.
