About EAG

Echo Analytics Group is an open source intelligence (OSINT) research and analysis company founded in 2015, but it didn’t start there. We quickly realized the significant impact social media was having across the world while serving with the Department of Defense overseas. With an increase in online storage and faster internet connections, massive amounts of information and media were being uploaded to the internet every day. While some of the information was trustworthy, we also knew that a lot of the information was unreliable. This created a significant challenge for us and our colleagues, and that led us to developing research methods and technologies to assist us in quickly finding and analyzing reliable information. Our work resulted in the Discover, Develop and Monitor (D2M) method for open source research and analysis and CID, an easy to customize open source data, analytics tools, and resource dashboard. We started teaching D2M for Open Source Intelligence Research and Analysis in 2015 and it is now used by intelligence, security, and law enforcement professionals around the world. As a company, we have improved our research methodologies and have built technologies to help make the process of researching open source information more efficient. At Echo Analytics Group, we provide solutions to our clients in the form of OSINT products, training, technology, or a combination of all three.
