According to a number of media reports, Securiport, two time Winner of 2016 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards for Best Identification Management Solution & Best Threat Intelligence Solution, helped Senegalese authorities apprehend two high-ranking Daesh, commonly referred to as ISIS, jihadists in the Senegal Airport.

The suspects are of Moroccan descent and were traveling from Istanbul when they were flagged by Securiport’s global security system and arrested immediately.

The names of the suspects have yet to be released, but they are the 36th terrorists to be captured by Senegalese authorities this year. 

In this globally connected world, ensuring strategic border security has become a high priority for European, Middle Eastern and African nations alike.

Terrorists don’t respect international borders, so the need for implementing strong immigration control measures is imperative.

As criminals and terrorists move across borders undetected, utilizing intelligent immigration control is a critical weapon in the fight against these new threats.

ISISAnd nowhere is there a greater need for border security than at airports. In 2016 Interpol flagged 115,000 people attempting to use fraudulent passports and travel documents.

That’s why countries typically ravaged by terrorists and criminals illegally crossing their borders are now relying on sophisticated airport security to assist them with their security.

The Securiport IICS System provides a comprehensive security package that includes expert systems and support services for immigration processing, passenger biometric recognition, and intelligent information management and reporting for criminal profiling and the detection of persons of interest.

With this technology, and with the assistance of specially trained personnel, airports now have access to comprehensive biometric and passport screening technology in an integrated system, and real-time access to Interpol and similar international security-related databases.

Securiport’s threat detecting systems alert immigration officials of possible risks in real-time. A recognized leader in border security through the use of intelligent immigration controls and aviation security solutions, Securiport is the “gold standard” for providing tools for threat assessment and identifying trans-national criminal activities.

In addition to providing proprietary threat assessment tools, Securiport’s exclusive systems also conduct passenger biometric screening and security controls of travelers.

Securiport Intelligent Information Management System (IIMS)

Securiport’s Intelligent Information Management System (IIMS) is a unique, patented profiling system developed by Securiport that applies specialized data-mining techniques and complex algorithms to detect in real time persons of interest to the state.

  • Provides specialized tools to generate profiles of criminal types.
  • Collects, from multinational sources, structured and unstructured data relating to criminal activity.
  • Uses the collected data to identify individuals who fit criminal profiles during immigration processing and in any other environments as the government might wish.

Intelligent Information Management System Comprises of:

  • Intelligent data analysis
  • Multi-source data mining
  • Behavioral models
  • Transnational crime detection
  • Profile generation by criminal type
  • Person-of-interest recognition in real time
  • Intelligent information reports

Specifically, the IIMS include the following tools:

The criminal-profile generating tools provided with the IIMS allow government authorities to define in detail the typology of any number of categories of domestic or transnational criminals in such areas as human trafficking, drug smuggling, terrorism, weapons smuggling, money laundering, tax evasion, organized crime, and others.

2. BACKGROUND DATA GATHERING

The IIMS continuously searches worldwide sources for data related to active criminal profiles, analyzes the data with advanced data-mining techniques, and then stores the results in local databases. The data the IIMS obtains come from both structured and unstructured sources.

3. RISK ASSESSMENT

During immigration processing, or in other contexts as the security authorities might require,

the IIMS determines if a subject’s personal background data matches a criminal profile, thus identifying a person of interest.

4. DATA SECURITY

Securiport does not operate the IIMS or have access to its data. This is performed by personnel of the client government fully trained by Securiport.

All data is encrypted and only the client government has the keys to decode it, effectively preventing any external party from unauthorized access.
