A Scientific and Technical Intelligence Search Engine

REDACT: Mining the World's R&D

Failure to properly appraise the extent of scientific developments in enemy countries may have more immediate and catastrophic consequences than failure in any other field of intelligence.

The Eberstadt Report (1948)

What is REDACT Search?

Taia Global’s REDACT R&D search engine is a completely novel approach to help large multinational companies protect their intellectual property from loss by malicious actors and rival entities.

In today’s digitally connected, global economy more and more companies have offices in multiple nations, use dozens if not hundreds of different vendors, have thousands of endpoints and several million files. It’s impossible to protect all of those files so how does a company’s Chief Information Security Officer identify which files are too valuable to lose?

Taia Global’s solution is to follow the (R&D) money, because if it’s worth developing – it’s worth stealing.

 

OUR VALUE PROPOSITION

Taia Global linguists identify foreign government funded research in high value technologies including optoelectronics, networks and systems, aerospace software engineering, bio-nanotechnology, and much more. In fact, we add dozens of new research institutes and hundreds of new R&D projects every week. Users can drill down to the project level in most cases. That’s the kind of detail that’s needed for a company to determine if their product line or research specialty is at risk for being stolen by hackers or malicious insiders.

FIRST PRINCIPLES

REDACT takes cyber security back to first principles:

  1. Determine what your adversary needs. The mercenary hacker group, foreign intelligence service, or corporate rival who’s targeting your valuable IP needs it or they wouldn’t risk their assets on it. We determine those needs by tracking their R&D funding and making the results of our findings searchable.
  2. Does your technology match that need? Use REDACT Search to discover the answer.

 

A FEW USE CASES

Differentiation of Risk

REDACT enables a corporate security team to evaluate the risk of conducting business in any global location based upon the value of their IP against that country’s technological research priorities and funding.

Discover What’s Being Targeted

Many companies use Data Loss Prevention products. REDACT can add “adversary interest” to your DLP policy setting process.

Expand Your Competitive Intelligence

Compare your product’s technology and R&D to that of competing research institutions in Europe and Asia. Will you still be competitive in three to five years?

When weighing available mitigation options to defend against APT activity, organizations must begin by evaluating data criticality based upon risk. They should know what must be protected in their organization.
