NetSec Vigilant supports proactive knowledge discovery with aims to prevent and mitigate crimes before they happen. 


NetSec V complements NetSec Forensics. Whereas the latter specializes in retrospective knowledge discovery when a crime has already been committed, an investigation gathers data in a needs-driven way, examining this data, looking for patterns that might indicate the perpetrator. 


Law enforcement also uses prospective techniques to decide where crime might happen requires predictive reasoning: Algorithmic models are used to predict the risk posed by a particular object or person in a particular setting, and a decision is made based on this predicted risk. Some examples are: 


  • Predicting the distribution of crime in time and space, so that personnel levels and patrol patterns can be arranged for best effect, perhaps for maximum deterrence. 

  • Predicting the likelihood that passengers might want or be planning to carry out a terrorist attack in a transportation setting such as an airport or train station. Airline passenger screening is one well-known example. 

  • Predicting which people crossing a border should receive significant attention from customs (and other border-control entities). 

These predictive models are built from recent historical and real-time data from which the differences between high and low-risk objects or people can be inferred. For example, looking at the geographical and temporal location of known suspect crimes can be used to schedule police presence to act as a more effective deterrent. 


When the focus is on prevention, data collection must be in real-time, Since potential trouble spots are not known in advance, extensive location tracking data is required to predict them. NetSec V captures real-time positioning and tracks stationary and moving targets: 

  • Where are the suspects at the moment? Are suspects moving? 

  • Where are the suspects heading? 

  • Visual presentation of track of suspects’ movement and time on a digital map Real-time visual display of tracking on the digital map with map matching software Rule-based Trigger Tracking and Alert Geofencing places (known XY polygons) 

  • Send alarms when suspects enter or leave a pre-defined area. 

  • Static Geofence - Send a warning when suspects enter or leave a pre-defined area Area monitoring – send an alarm if in a given area are more people than usual 

  • Set up moving geofences Send alarms when suspects are close to each other 

  • Send alarms when suspects are close to a VIP Send alarms when suspects are closer to an object, each other, or a VIP less than 10 minutes by car or on foot 

  • Locate both MSISDNs if the known suspect has forwarded the calls Send alarms if known suspect changes an MSISDN or a phone: If tracking is on automatically, start to track new MSISDN or phone If an old phone still exists, track the old phone as well Monitor movement of every mobile device based on observable behaviors in terms of movement, dwell time and call activity.
