Understanding propaganda campaigns and automating mitigation and reaction activities are goals supported by Blackbird's Constellation Platform. Constellation is capable of identifying and highlighting threat actors, entities of interest, accounts (including bots/botnets and/or influencers), coordinated communities, connections, photos, videos, and data streams. It also offers automated reports that enable the analyst to gain automated insights. By integrating their data pipeline with Blackbird's contextual data enrichment, analysts can gain a deeper understanding of their data and metadata, providing them with new insights into threats. They can also use our Constellation's Dashboard to understand these systems through interactive visualization and AI that is human interpretable. GOVERNMENT (National Security, Interior, Intelligence, OSINT/HUMINT teams, and Innovation/AI think tanks) are the target customers. A Fortune 500/Global 5000 enterprise organization's CISO or CMO is considered an enterprise.
