Echo Analytics Group Partners with All Things Possible for Fifth Skull Games Initiative

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

ECHO ANALYTICS GROUP PARTNERS WITH ALL THINGS POSSIBLE FOR FOURTH SKULL GAMES INITIATIVE

Counter Human Trafficking Event Coincides with Open-Intelligence Conference in Tampa

TAMPA, FL (October 13, 2022) –Echo Analytics Group (EAG) is partnering with All Things Possible (ATP) to host the fifth Skull Games event this Saturday-Sunday, October 15-16. The event coincides with Tampa hosting the eighth annual OSMOSIS (The Open-Source Intelligence Skills-Building) Conference for the first time, with industry experts attending from all over the world.

The Skull Games program crowdsources the collection of open-source intelligence (OSINT) to enable law enforcement with leads on trafficked victims and persons of interest. The two-day event brings together vetted volunteers who have experience in open-source intelligence (OSINT) to aid in the identification of victims and persons of interest to help combat sex trafficking. The volunteers work together at the EAG Operations Center and online across the country to partner and provide information and support to law enforcement. At the conclusion of the weekend, EAG and ATP send detailed reports to law enforcement with a path of discovery for them to obtain warrant or probable cause to find victims or criminals. To date, Skull Games has identified 45 girls and 20 persons of interests.

Jeff Tiegs, who served as a U.S. Army Ranger and Delta Force Operator, is the Chief Operating Officer of All Things Possible Ministries. Tiegs uses his expertise and experience to counter human trafficking with the help of Echo Analytics Group and their research platform, TORCH.

“The ability to recruit and groom victims is at an all-time high,” said Tiegs. “Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat are riddled with predators. They are all over Minecraft and Roblox. They use mediums where you can share photos and videos. They are on Whisper and Scout, and they are on all the dating sites.”

“We are thrilled to combine Skull Games with OSMOSISCon, and work with ATP to help save lives and put an end to human trafficking,” said Buddy Jericho, CEO of Echo Analytics Group. “The work that Jeff and the team at All Things Possible is critical to helping law enforcement across the country.”

OSMOSIS is an annual Open-Source Intelligence Skills-Building Conference featuring experts in the field of open-source intelligence. These experts will present and demonstrate some of the most in-depth insider techniques and training. Jericho will also be speaking at the conference raising awareness on how OSINT is used to counter sex trafficking, and the success of Skull Games.

Media interested in Skull Games should contact Jeffrey Kamis at 813.784.3642 for more information and interview opportunities this week and weekend. In addition, media are invited to an Open House at Echo Analytics Group this Sunday, October 16 from 3-6 pm. Please RSVP HERE.

Echo Analytics Group Announces Launch of TORCH

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

 ECHO ANALYTICS GROUP  ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF TORCH 

All Your Research Needs. One Single Platform 

 

TAMPA, FL (June 2, 2022) – Tampa based Echo Analytics Group (EAG) announced yesterday the launch of its new TORCH platform, designed to empower research professionals to organize, collaborate and enhance their research abilities.   This unique platform houses access to more than 800 data sets and analytics tools, as well as a case management system that makes organizing research simple. The new platform allows analysts and researchers the ability to not only conduct better fact-finding, but also gives them the tools and resources to combat the relentless amount of disinformation and misinformation impacting the ever-changing landscape in the world. 

Through open-source intelligence (OSINT), TORCH provides a streamlined research solution bringing together all the offerings EAG once provided as individual services. The TORCH Toolkit includes a dynamic and customizable library of tools to access publicly available data. TORCH includes a Case Manager feature that allows users to organize, collaborate and share their findings with other users, all in one location.   Also available in the TORCH platform is the TORCH Academy, a library of on-demand courses developed to enhance professional development.  

“One of the biggest challenges for me during my military career was deploying to Fallujah and having to quickly learn about an emerging adversary.  For a short time, I felt unprepared, and we had a lot of information but separating the facts from the noise was extremely difficult, it was not a good feeling.” said Buddy Jericho, CEO of Echo Analytics Group. “For that reason, I set out to build a company to help people who today are facing similar challenges in both the corporate world, law enforcement and private domain. The only difference now is that everything is online.  This launch milestone gets our team one step closer to achieving the mission of making advanced research training and technology available and affordable to the people who need it most.” 

The TORCH platform is now available at an introductory rate of $49.99 per month. 

“Our team at EAG has trained thousands of professionals in the military, law enforcement, private security, and even human resource departments on methods of doing advanced research.  We have also provided research services to these industries.  Our team created TORCH after gathering extensive feedback from analysts and researchers faced with the ongoing challenge of keeping up with the growing amount of information online,” said Jericho. “The obstacle is sifting through all the data, encroaching on crucial time to analyze and apply critical thinking. The TORCH platform helps analysts make the research process more efficient, helping businesses and brands make more informed decisions when timing is crucial.”
