Intelligence

Protect your brand and business with our intelligence services

Content and brand protection should be a high priority for any organisation; instilling consumer confidence in purchasing a legitimate, quality product or service whilst protecting and boosting your revenue stream.

Illegitimate methods of providing this product or service are increasingly present, both online and offline. A core element of content and brand protection is identifying these illegal means in parallel with gathering and storing the relevant information to help tackle the issue.  An accurate intelligence landscape will enable your organisation to tackle current issues and foresee future problems.

Being an intelligence-led organisation is fundamental to effectively tackling threats and risks to your business.

How can FACT’s intelligence service protect your brand or business?

FACT’s intelligence capabilities can help you eliminate threats and risks to your business. Information forms the basis and starting point of an investigation and the capability to collect, collate and interrogate data is vital at each stage of an investigation. FACT’s intelligence service has the capability to handle your data through the intelligence cycle, from receipt to action.

Our intelligence service can perform all or one of the following functions on your behalf:
