You are not alone if you:

  • Still rely too heavily on Google for your Adverse Media research and background checks.
  • Spend too much time reading through articles after a hit to determine risk level and relevance only to find it unrelated to your search target.
  • Have no oversight of your customer’s Adverse Media risk exposure.
  • Only screen during onboarding and do not get alerted when the risk occurs thereafter.
  • Struggle with too many false positives and have no way of filtering or fine-tuning results by relevance or severity.


RiskSecure's intelligent automation eliminates these problems by streamlining the adverse media screening process.


RISKSECURE automatically scans thousands of unstructured global sources on the web and stores only the relevant ones that meet our Adverse Media criteria.


Using AI and NLP (Natural Language Processing), RISKSECURE automatically identifies actors, exact sentences and associations in 22 categories to make them searchable.


This data gets enriched with intelligent AI-Powered augmentation layers that score the actors based on their risk, summarizes articles and even calculates the relevance of sentences to speed up your decision making.


Compile, share and download results in seconds with easy to use use reporting and insights.
