Critical Incidents Tracker or CIncidents is a product of MEA Risk. CIncidents provides up-to-minute listings and analysis of key events through a cloud-based database and a live geo-mapping platform and on-the-ground Analysts reachable almost instantaneously. The visual interface is further enhanced through a set of analytical tools providing a greater degree of intelligence on what countries are facing in dealing with an unstable environment.

The Service:

CIncidents is a set of tools that combines a cloud-based database, a live feed into a geo-mapping user interface, a set of analytics, a series of alerts and a set of analyst reports. The whole package forms a brand new way of looking at geopolitical crises, above and beyond politics and country ratings as we have known them.

Customers have the ability to visualize incidents as soon as on-the-ground Tracker sees them. The Trackers use all their personal and public sources. Some of what they report may even be rumors, which are reported as such. The user interface is a live map that is fed from a live database of incidents. Each incident is rated based on its severity and impact on stability, with reports including the outcome of events in the form of collateral damage. The end result is not only a sophisticated visual interface, but also, and more importantly, a set of analytical reports that leverage the reported data and transform the statistics into rating.

Method and People:

CIncidents rely on Analysts and Trackers located in the regions that are monitored. The Trackers are well versed on all sorts of issues specific to the countries they cover, and have the language skills to provide either concise summaries or in-depth reports. In addition to the Trackers, CIncidents rely on subject experts to help make sense of events on the ground. These experts can be within the covered countries or abroad, but they must demonstrate excellent knowledge of the subject at hand.

Who Should Use CIncidents and Why:

CIncidents is designed to be used by professionals active in various government, military, corporate, and academic sectors. This service is of a particular interest to multinational institutions. We offer free data to human rights organizations and NGOs that have an interest in social and human issues.  CIncidents is the only such product available in the market. It is comprehensive, objective, and highly analytical.
