Process -v- People
Achieving the productive balance with mSIS
People driven organisations that reject process in favour of human skills will be reluctant to adopt mSIS. We know this from our own experience.
Neil Smith, Qwarie's highly experienced Director and OSINT researcher, does not use mSIS. Despite this, he does see some process value even for the very experienced researcher.."The tools that mSIS provides, are a great time-saver, with functions such as obtaining a social media account ID and auto-composition of reports with an audit trail of my online enquiries. I guess that if I was doing research all the time, I would use mSIS, but I am used to the way I like to work, and can't be bothered to learn something new".
mSIS, an Application for Process Driven Investigations
Neil originally conceived mSIS for less experienced researchers; people that require a research process to follow, where multiple resources facilitate the investigation and with information about OSINT techniques, that are frequently changing and that provide on-going learning for the researcher.
The Qwarie development team, with guidance from the NPCC, the CPS and relevant legislation, has extended mSIS way beyond the initial brief, so that even the most experienced researcher might benefit from the legally compliant investigation process that mSIS provides. The good news is... there is nothing new to learn, because mSIS delivers compliance automatically, working in the background to keep all investigations safe.
mSIS Provides significant Productivity benefits for:
> Organisations that require a investigation uniform process and standardised report output.
> OSINT Researchers using mSIS benefit from:
- a guided research process
- IPA 2016 / DPA 2018 / LED / GDPR compliance
- disclosure compliance
- multiple tools to expedite the research process
- access to current OSINT research resources
- access to thousands of OSINT data sources
- the ability to include and secure evidence from proprietary sources
- auto-generated reporting
- uniform case development
- easy and secure editing of a report
- end-to-end evidence security
- distribution of a case bundle with no compromise of security
In a matter of days, mSIS can turn a new researcher into an effective researcher, which might otherwise take years!
For organisations that require a uniform process and consistent output, mSIS delivers.
