ICIJ’s Offshore Investigations: Making Sense Of Complex Data

mm

In the era of huge data leaks and e-discovery, finding evidence that can be helpful in investigations and litigation support can be like looking for a needle in a haystack … where it’s difficult to see the wood for the trees.

At next month’s OffshoreAlert Conference in London, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and one of its technology partners, Linkurious, will explain how to organize, sort, manage and make sense of complex data.

The ICIJ has handled some of the biggest data dumps in history, including the Panama Papers (2.6 terabytes of data, 11.5 million records about 215,000 individuals and entities) and the Paradise Papers (1.4 terabytes of data, 13.4 million records about 120,000 individuals and entities). The organization used French software company Linkurious to help it visualize the data and better understand what was going on.

In a session entitled ‘Connecting The Dots: How To Organize & Understand Complex Data To Detect Red Flags’, ICIJ investigative reporter Simon Bowers and Linkurious co-founder Jean Villedieu will discuss their techniques.

The 7th Annual OffshoreAlert Conference Europe on financial intelligence and investigations will take place at the Grange St. Paul’s Hotel, in London, on November 12-13th, 2018.

Tue Nov 13/ 2:15 PM – 3:15 PM  ( 1 Hour )
