About Echosec Systems

Bridging the gap between online chatter and real-world security threats

Our Story


In 2013, our founding CEO—a veteran cartographer, was tasked with building a tool to map social media use around a Canadian university campus. It wasn't long before a military general, as well as a key investor, saw the potential for the technology and it began its evolution into a security intelligence solution unlike anything on the market.

Now, the Echosec Systems Platform has become a fundamental tool for the intelligence community and enterprise security teams worldwide. It is prized by teams who value speed to information, breadth of data, and ease of use. These factors are critical for reducing training time, enabling new users to be effective on day one.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make the world's public data more accessible to protect people, places, and organizations. We build powerful, intuitive tools that bridge the information gap between online chatter and real-world security threats.


Our Approach

Our goal is to empower security teams with the information they need to keep people, places, and organizations safe. To do that effectively and sustainably, we put the following core values at the forefront of our approach.

  • Compliance: We are a privacy-first company and are SOC 2 compliant.
  • Flexibility: Our clients have variable requirements so we offer a web-based Platform or API.
  • Agility: The online world evolves quickly and so do we. We crawl millions of new data points every month.
