Operational Due Diligence FAQs

Find below a selection of FAQs we hear when discussing Operational Due Diligence.

I already conduct operational due diligence, what’s the difference here?

Google searches only cover 4-6% of the entire internet. The Neotas Platform provides a richer and more complete profile of companies, individuals and their networks, with greater:

  • Coverage: we cover traditional third party databases, the entire internet (surface, deep and dark web)
  • Depth: we automatically gather and analyse data using AI and machine learning, pulling information which others do not. This provides unique insights into behavioural attributes, reputation, connections (that are not in any databases).
  • Speed and ease of use: our Platform can conduct ‘built-in’ investigations in seconds as opposed to days and hours. The Neotas Platform is also easy to use.

How far back do you look?

Our Platform looks back as far as there is information available, regardless of time.

Does identifying people risk really add value to this process?

Absolutely. 90% of organisational risks are people related. This area of due diligence is still highly neglected. Hidden people risk can prove very costly both financially and to your reputation. By identifying people risk in your due diligence process, you will also help to mitigate wider operational risks.

What types of risk categories do you uncover?

The risks we consider include:

  • Financial irregularities & fraud
  • Hate & discriminatory behaviour
  • Violence & abusive behaviour
  • Employee/client reviews
  • Debarred/disqualified/insolvent entities
  • Links to criminal activity
  • Adverse media
  • Political exposure
  • Multiple aliases
  • Modern slavery concerns
  • Environmental concerns
  • Risks associated with stakeholders/networks
