Introducing A New Beta Feature: Project Prague 

You may find yourself in a scenario where you’re working an investigation that goes beyond the “four walls” of your company. Perhaps you’re collaborating with a third party or even a government agency. If that’s the case, evidence relevant to your case may be popping up elsewhere. This cross-case sharing of information is one way in which we’re looking to help support our customers and we’ve introduced beta functionality in Magnet AXIOM Cyber (and Magnet AXIOM for that matter too) called Project Prague, which is a new beta feature that introduces cross-case searching and analytics. 

Some of the key features of Project Prague include the ability to: 

  • Push specific identifiers of interest to Prague database 
  • Track instances of this identifier across different cases 
  • Query all identifiers in a case so they can be matched to identifiers of interest in Prague 
  • Tag all hits relating to the matching identifier in a current case 
  • Create a report outlining all details for matched identifiers and contact information for each 

If you’re interested in testing out this new beta feature and providing your feedback, visit the MAGNET Idea Lab™ and request access.

Acquire More Public Facing Data from Facebook 

In AXIOM Cyber 5.1, we introduced the ability to acquire public-facing data from Facebook. Now in version 5.2, we’ve continued to build out support for this feature by adding to it!  

Using any Facebook username and password an examiner can authenticate to Facebook and acquire public-facing data from Facebook including:  

  • Profile Information (NEW in 5.2) 
  • Friends list  
  • Public-facing posts  
  • Public-facing comments & replies 

Data from social media can provide insight into an employee’s online presence. Whether you’re dealing with an HR investigation or trying to preserve comments or posts that an employee has made on social media, public-facing data from Facebook can help round out your investigation.
