I spent most of 2017 reviewing and analyzing new technology products to see how we could integrate them into the manned guarding services. The summer of 2017 we focused on identifying situational intelligence and threat awareness products. There are many on the market today, with most created for the large Fortune 500 companies who have robust security programs, and budgets to go along with them. W
e did identify one company that structured itself to entry level users, but the one commonality we found with all of them, is their reliance upon an analyst to extract the value from the system. Without some variation of the human analyst, the software doesn't bring value to the end user. Now we had the cost of the software, plus the cost of the analyst. There was a whole unfulfilled market out there, but no solution to fit their needs.
In today’s podcast, I interview Jim Chiacchia, a Director at GeoSpark Analytics. Jim, who is a retired Lieutenant Colonel from the USMC, an attorney, and a fellow University of Massachusetts alum, talks about GeoSpark Analytics, Hyperion, and how they are plan to change the situational intelligence and threat awareness world using artificial intelligence. As I learned during the interview, I believe that Hyperion offers a solution, allowing not just the Fortune 500 companies, but creating a whole new market, so all companies can handle risk mitigation through better situational intelligence and threat awareness.
