Security Operations

Supply chain management is dynamic—even minor obstacles can disrupt the operational process of an entire industry. Using comprehensive event detection across hundreds of thousands of public data sources, Dataminr Pulse alerts customers to unfolding situations which may impact their supply chain—or that of their suppliers—including incidents that could lead to delays or cause long-term disruption such as port disruptions, fires at distribution warehouses and more.


Oil And Gas Company

Problem: A national oil company is hit by a cyber attack. Organizations must determine how to mitigate the risks as the impacts are immediate, significant and felt worldwide:

  • Fuel supply at gas stations across the nation is cut due to the cyber attack’s impact on the national distribution network
  • Pumps at gas stations display messages indicating a cyber attack
  • Drivers in vehicles wait in long lines for gas stations due to the fuel distribution system outage
  • Nearly 4,300 gas stations worldwide are impacted

Solution: Dataminr Pulse alerts customers to the attack two hours ahead of any media coverage. The series of alerts deliver the full contextual arc of the event via surface, deep and dark web sources. This allows the risk managers of affected customers to assess the scale and scope of the attack and make critical decisions in real time to minimize the impact.


Oil Tanker Hijacking

Problem: After an oil tanker is hijacked, threat intelligence teams at various organizations are in need of real-time situational awareness so that they can reroute assets away from harm.

Solution: The initial hijacking information is detected by Dataminr Pulse within six minutes of the first social media post on it. Dataminr sends its customers 30 alerts throughout the lifespan of the event. The speed with which the alerts are delivered eliminates blind spots and ensures customers can make well-informed decisions—such as rerouting shipments and preparing for supplier delays—based on the most accurate and up-to-date information.
