  • Patent number: 10318630
    Abstract: In various example embodiments, a textual identification system is configured to receive a set of search terms and identify a set of textual data based on the search terms. The textual identification system retrieves a data structure including textual identifications for the set of textual data and processes the data structure to generate a modified data structure. The textual identification system sums rows within the modified data structure and identifies one or more elements of interest. The textual identification system then causes presentation of the elements of interest in a first portion of a graphical user interface and the textual identifications for the set of textual data in a second portion of the graphical user interface.

  • Patent number: 10311081
    Abstract: A computer-based investigative analysis system is disclosed in which a user can share results of an investigation with other users in a way that allows the sharing user to visualize how the results will be shared before they are shared. The results are shared in the form of a visual graph having nodes, edges, and other presentation elements. The nodes represent data objects that are the subject of the investigation and the edges represent connections between the data objects. The graph is shared in the form of an automatically generated redacted graph omitting nodes, edges, and presentation elements for which the other users do not have permission to view. Before sharing the graph, the sharing user is presented with a visualization of the automatically generated redacted graph providing the user an opportunity to confirm that sharing the redacted graph will not constitute an unauthorized information leakage.

  • Patent number: 10298603
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure relate to computer system security. A machine accesses a set of records corresponding to a set of users having access to a computer system. The machine stores, for each user in the set of users, a baseline profile representing baseline activity of the user with respect to a set of data sources of the computer system. The machine monitors activity of the set of users with respect to the set of data sources. The machine determines, based on monitoring the activity of the set of users, that a user action of a specified user, with respect to one or more data sources from the set of data sources, is anomalous relative to the baseline profile of the specified user. The machine provides a digital transmission representing the anomalous user action.

  • Patent number: 10291637
    Abstract: A security system detects and attributes anomalous activity in a network. The system logs user network activity, which can include ports used, IP addresses, commands typed, etc., and may detect anomalous activity by comparing users to find similar users, sorting similar users into cohorts, and comparing new user activity to logged behavior of the cohort. The comparison can include a divergence calculation. Origins of user activity can also be used to determine anomalous network activity. The hostname, username, IP address, and timestamp can be used to calculate aggregate scores and convoluted scores. The system extracts features from the logged anomalous network activity, and determines whether the activity is attributable to an actor profile by comparing the extracted features and attributes associated with the actor profile based upon previous activity attributed to the actor.

  • Patent number: 10275778
    Abstract: In various embodiments, systems, methods, and techniques are disclosed for generating a collection of clusters of related data from a seed to assist in detection of financial malfeasance. Seeds may be generated based on seed generation strategies or rules. Clusters may be generated by, for example, retrieving a seed, adding the seed to a first cluster, retrieving a clustering strategy or rules, and adding related data (such as trades, emails or chat messages) and/or data entities to the cluster based on the clustering strategy. Various cluster scores may be generated based on attributes of data in a given cluster, and the clusters may be displayed and ranked based on their scores. Various embodiments may enable an analyst to review clusters of trades, emails and/or chat messages that are the most likely to reveal financial malfeasance.

  • Patent number: 10270727
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a computer-implemented process is programmed or configured to allow a first mobile device to generate and send enriched pin data to a geographical messaging system. Enriched pin data may include latitude and longitude data, a timestamp, and a media element. Media elements may include image data, video data, text data, drawing data that defines a geographic location, route data that defines a geographic travel path, and/or pin expiration data. The geographical messaging system may then broadcast the enriched pin data to a second mobile device belonging to a team member in the same geographical region as the first mobile device. The second mobile device may then use the enriched pin data to display, on a geographical map, a map pin that corresponds to the enriched pin data. In one embodiment, the second mobile device may also use the enriched pin data to display, in a message chain, a message related to the enriched pin data.

  • Patent number: 10262053
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for storing a first data object comprising a first set of immutable components, the first data object being associated with a corresponding second data object stored by a remote replication system. A difference is determined between the first set of immutable components of the first data object and a second set of immutable components of the corresponding second data object. A subset of immutable components is identified from the first set of immutable components based on the difference. The subset of immutable components from the first set of immutable components is provided to the remote replication system over a communication network.

  • Patent number: 10261763
    Abstract: Data transformation in a distributed system of applications and data repositories is described. The subsystems for the overall framework are distributed, thereby allowing for customization to require only isolated changes to one or more subsystems. In one embodiment, a source code repository is used to receive and store source code. A build subsystem can retrieve source code from the source code repository and build it, using one or more criteria. By building the source code, the build subsystem can generate an artifact, which is executable code, such as a JAR or SQL file. Likewise, by building the source code, the build subsystem can generate one or more job specifications for executing the executable code. In one embodiment, the artifact and job specification may be used to launch an application server in a cluster. The application server can then receive data transformation instructions and execute the data transformation instructions.
