No agency, organization, or company ever has enough information during a disaster. CDRP helps fill this gap through the use of open source intelligence (OSINT) and data visualization. We have leveraged OSINT for actionable information since 2011, including law enforcement actions, electon outcomes, public health events, numerous Tropical Storms and flooding events, and Hurricanes Matthew, Harvey, and Irma. We work with our partners to develop a specific collection plan, and provide tailored reports and visualizations on a pre-determined schedule.
CDRP faculty and staff are recognized experts on the collection and analysis of OSINT during disasters and can meet the needs of both public and private sector oganizations. Ask us how we can help you before your next crisis.
