Link Analysis Training and Project Consulting from the Experts

Link Analysis software helps organizations efficiently piece together disparate data into a single cohesive intelligence picture. At CodeCenters, we have been working with link analysis methods for over 20 years and we have been using i2 and in-house custom linking software for most of that time. With many competitors in the market, i2 is still the industry standard for organizations who need timely, actionable intelligence to help identify, predict, prevent and disrupt criminal, terrorist and fraudulent activities.

Link Analysis Consulting

Working with your team, we can help you discover links, transit paths and relationships for any type of law enforcement, legal or business data. If you are a data security officer, we have solutions for you. We commonly use i2 for network security and financial transaction auditing, where we bring in millions of transactions and digital packets to pinpoint hard to find issues, which is almost impossible to do with other software. So whether you have a small case or enterprise sized issue, we can help.

Training - Our focus is for you to become an expert practitioner

If you need to learn how to analyze and link data from your RMS system or investige a global data threat, our operationally based training can meet your needs.

If you have a niche environment, we can produce training data sets that will simulate your analysis environment so you understand how the data relates and what you can expect when you get started with live data. Our auditors and AML analysts use i2 and other link analysis software as part of their suite of investigative and analysis tools, so you are guaranteed a real-world training experience. Additionally, we offer follow-on remote training and consulting for large or complex projects as needed to ensure an end-to-end solution.

We deliver standard and custom project-mission based link analysis courses on request. We would be happy to work with you to ensure all of your training needs are met and exceeded.
