Harod uses cutting edge technology that is currently in use at the highest levels of government to better inform decision makers.

Although OSCAR is unique, what truly sets Harod apart is its team of internationally experienced intelligence and investigation officers.

The unique collective experience of these officers ensures that instinct is not lost in the automatic processing and that an intelligence collection plan can be quickly adapted to the ever changing needs of a client.

Open Source Cyber Analysis and Research - OSCAR

It is impossible to truly understand a subject without conducting a thorough examination of web available material. However, the sheer quantity of data contained within individual websites and across social media, combined with the inherent limitations of most search engines, means that a subject or profile can only be examined effectively using a tool specifically designed for the purpose.

Harod utilises a suite of proprietary web based tools called SEEKER and SENTINEL that are known collectively as OSCAR. OSCAR can be used to conduct a thorough base level study of any given subject and then used to proactively monitor threat indicators and gather real time intelligence whilst complementary enquiries are being conducted.

OSCAR combines state of the art datamining and analysis technology with the unique perspective of its proven international network to provide clients with an intelligence or evidential product tailored to their individual requirements.
