WorldWatch Plus® Global Adverse Media searches thousands of global news sources, capturing articles of interest from breaking news, current events and relevant media dating back to the early 1900s. This gives subscribers the ability to perform enhanced due diligence on a subject (person or business entity). This product provides negative media and is based on a proprietary process that searches for data matches of thousands of adverse “Key Word Strings” to obtain results. The focus of these data extracts is 100% behavioral and not collected based only on a subject’s name. This process exposes any and all subjects that would be considered a person of interest, but does not return unwarranted information. It only returns data of concern, which streamlines the adjudication process for the user every time it is utilized. This functionality is many times more dynamic than the delimited data files obtained through similar solutions. By searching breaking news, users are provided with an early warning on persons of interest. In most cases, a significant amount of time elapses before official watch lists and PEP records are updated with news that is occurring today. This service will effectively bridge that gap and mitigate your risk.
The WorldWatch Plus® Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) Product provides up to date access to the most inclusive government published PEP lists available. This data includes the history of persons of political interest dating as far back as the 1700s and does not require the use of manually managed databases that in most cases lack critical details; these records are maintained directly from official authorities. Today, the Politically Exposed Person Product includes target data from over 1,200 sources with over 4 million global records and is continuously enhanced with newly identified data. The WorldWatch Plus® Support Team includes a dedicated expert panel of analysts to continuously monitor global sources and ensure the latest published records are acquired and implemented to provide subscribers with the most current, comprehensive and official information available at all times. A limited Sample of PEP Sources: CIA World Leaders List, the European Parliament Directory, World Statesman, Rulers and over 1,000 others to identify past subjects, along with the most current and active PEPs today.
