Who We Are
Social and Web Investigation Conducted Properly
Founded in 2011, SMI Aware is the longest-running social media evidence collection and preservation company. We have created proprietary technology that enables us to locate, export, and preserve information from social media, search engines, public records, and the deep web. We help legal professionals, claims investigators, government agencies, and financial institutions find and analyze web and social media evidence for use in due-diligence investigations, background checks, fraud, and criminal cases.
SMI Aware is an approved and preferred vendor for Chubb, CapSpecialty, Federated Insurance, Selective Insurance, and others – this means we can be used both internally and by outside counsel.
With a team of experienced analysts, SMI Aware not only exports and preserves social media and online evidence, but also provides curated reports that are ready-to-use in your investigation. Ethical investigation techniques combined with a secured chain-of-custody provides our customers with admissible evidence that saves your team time, money, and frustration.
