GRID is a 18 million-plus record, continuously updated risk data archive on known or suspected corrupt private-and public sector figures, fraudsters, illicit financiers, money launderers, organized crime figures and groups, terrorist figures and organizations, politically exposed persons, and dozens of other risk relevant categories of persons and organizations. GRID grows by approximately 7,000 quality reviewed, structured records each day from nearly 200 countries around the world. New risk information sources are continuously incorporated into the database.
Media incorporated into GRID is derived from ~10,000 individual sources of public-source newspapers, magazines, television and radio transcripts, trade specialty publications, geographic special interest publications, academic journals, and gray literature.
- Sources are global, and include small, low-circulation local newspapers from the US and abroad as well as widely known newspapers and magazines.
- RDC incorporates human-translated foreign-language material from domestic and overseas US government bureaus staffed with individuals who monitor timely and pertinent open-source materials.
- GRID media sources cover every region of the world - the Americas, Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Near East, and Oceania.
Government Lists and Regulatory Authority Actions
GRID contains hundreds of regulatory and disciplinary authority and government lists from around the world, continuously updated. The data set includes watch lists, fugitive lists, exclusions lists, global sanctions lists, fraud warnings, debarment lists, disciplinary actions, enforcement actions, and more. The sources that feed our extensive collection of government lists and actions span a broad spectrum of local, state and federal lists of risk-relevant individuals and organizations including federal lists of entities that are legally sanctioned, have been the subject of more minor disciplinary actions for violations of regulatory rules, or are on “most wanted,” fugitive, or sex offender lists worldwide.
RDC’s Politically Exposed Persons product, PEP Connect, accounts for every global regulatory requirement. Fully sourced profiles of senior officeholders, military officials, judicial figures, state controlled enterprise directors, regional and municipal officials, legislators, and political party leaders gives users critical PEP intelligence.
Engineered by RDC following the 2010 tightening of global sanctions regimes targeting Iran, Iran Connect is a client-friendly enhancement to our full spectrum global and risk diligence suite. Iran Connect supplies detailed, open sourced profiles of Iran relevant entities and the associated individuals and organizations tied to those entities kept current as new information or details emerge.
