OpenSanctions Transforms for Maltego

Using the OpenSanctions integration for Maltego, investigators can identify which persons, companies, vessels or crypto wallets are on a sanctions list, or linked to a sanctioned entity, as well as to see if a person is a political official or a wanted criminal. Its fully auditable open-source intelligence platform features rich profiles for targeted entities including known aliases, biographical details, phone numbers, emails, and links to other entities, including family, associates, business directorships, ownerships and other links. OpenSanctions enables investigators to find person of interest and investigate them and their associations thoroughly.

OpenSanctions can be used as a starting point for mapping out linked assets—in particular company holdings and other activities—by combining the integration with company-centric Transforms for OpenCorporates, OCCRP Aleph, Orbis and Maltego’s many other personal identifier data integrations.
