Dark web leaks

We are the OSINT experts. Our immense data pool is unique within the industry.

AC Assets Control has access to a huge array of data resources, which no accounting firm among the big four can offer in the same scope and depth.

The world’s best proprietary databases at one stop

Our data universe encompasses the largest databases worldwide, with almost one billlion beneficiaries listed, 400 million company data, half a million news sites and a multitude of other resources. Our focus is not just international, but also local: we extend our research to specifically regional (financial) databases and local media.

Diligent maintenance of highly complex
OSINT sources

We actively maintain our Know-How regarding specific requests targeting government registers in on- and off-shore jurisdictions. Most requests can be handled electronically, but we have the capabilities to deal with requests on-site. We also employ cartographic tools and resources, as well as geodata; we make use of services delivering logistics, flight and freight information together with property registers, cadastral maps, but also current and historical satellite imagery and further resources.

Unique portfolio of information sourced from the deep web complemented with our own proprietary databases

Our OSINT toolbox is complemented by our own proprietary database, which we fill with new data and constantly optimize. To this we add our unique portfolio of information sourced from recently published ransomware leaks from the dark web, our own web-captures of sites in the deep web, as well as an extensive collection of past cases and criminal incidents.

The OSINT specialists at AC Asset Controls have at their disposal international resources such as regulatory alerts, court databases, share data and patent information.

Reporting

We deliver our reports with transparent and verifiable information regarding the sources and methods used. Facts are substantiated, rumors dispelled, subjective views are grounded with proof, so that the results may be presented in court, in hearings or in negotiations. We work strictly within the framework of legal regulations.

Our results are fit for court.

Comprehensive case management: retrieve primary data with one click

We provide our clients with a timeline of the presented evidence; with one click you can access the collected data behind the summary. That way, clients can review the supporting documents behind our OSINT research.

Relationship analysis, timelines, geolocation data: advanced tools to visualize results

With our forensic software tools such as Nuix Investigate or i2, which are also used by leading law enforcement agencies, we can analyze unstructured data and make complex connections visible. We use graphic analysis programs to illustrate relationships, geolocations and other links.

Our factual timelines also provide a one click access to the primary data

Experienced international white-collar crime experts from the investigative and legal fields regularly evaluate our methods and techniques in order to assure a consistent high quality. The technologies we employ conform to international legal standards and are recognized
by legal authorities in Europe and the US.

“The truth has a power of its own kind.”
Hannah Arendt

Ethics make a difference. Unethical companies who seek out reputable consultants in order to cover up their own serious criminal activity, protect dictators, and engage in unethical deals for lucrative mandates – we’ve seen it all. Our team will not accept such customers. And our clientele does not want to share their consultants with such companies either.

We adhere to the principles and values of a free, constitutional and democratic order, and are committed to liberty and peace in solidarity with and openness to the world, especially within a united Europe. We reject political and religious extremism. We espouse social equality, free trade, liberal freedoms and a fair market economy.

Compliance

As a highly specialized OSINT provider and investigative company, we have undoubtedly fewer conflicts of interest than a large, integrated accounting firm.

No financial or
asset management

AC Assets Control is resolute in its commitment not to offer consulting services in the field of asset management or financial portfolio management.

No public
relations work

Although we have distinguished former journalists in our team, we do not wish to perform PR or communications advisory work and refuse such mandates.

No auditing work at the corporate level

AC Assets Control has in-depth and proven skills in forensic accounting, yet we do not take on auditing or accountancy work at the corporate level.

Strict compliance with
industry standards

Should conflicts of interest arise in spite of our best efforts, AC Assets Control will proactively and transparently inform the affected parties. We refer to our code of conduct and our stated ethical principles.

We actively examine our relationships to prevent conflicts of interest.

We are committed to the highest level of IT security – in data storage and data exchange.

The AC Assets Control servers are operated exclusively in Switzerland under the strictest security requirements. Client data are exchanged either via physical data carriers with state-of-the-art encryption, or via a secure data room, which is also used and endorsed by leading international corporations and their boards of directors.
