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.”

Echo Analytics Group’s OSINT Intern Jocelyn Anderson Welcomed to the Team 

Congratulations to OSINT intern Jocelyn Anderson, who recently completed her internship with Echo Analytics Group—and is being hired as a full-time Junior OSINT Analyst!  

Ms. Anderson came to us via the Seton Hall School of Diplomacy and International Relations, where she specialized in International Security and Conflict Management, participating in the National Security Fellowship there.  

She was recommended for our internship program by Professor in Practice Mohamad Mirghahari, M.A., who has expertise in working with counterterrorism initiatives and other security fields, both within and outside the DoD, including support of Special Operations Forces at USSOCOM at MacDill AFB in Tampa Florida. 

Ms. Anderson has been working on multiple projects, but her favorite is assisting in creating daily threat assessment briefings. Of her time as an intern with Echo Analytics Group, she says that interns are set up to succeed, to learn everything they can, and to follow their passions within the OSINT field. She recommends EAG internships for students who want to learn a lot of new skills within a short time that are useful for both school and work.   

(In fact she says that she has done OSINT research for her other class assignments!)  

We all thank Ms. Anderson for her hard work, eagerness to learn, and self-starting attitude! Welcome to the team!
