Offshore secrets: unravelling a complex package of data

Category : Business

How the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists made sense of the 260 gigabytes of information

The ICIJ’s exploration of offshore secrets began when a computer hard drive packed with corporate data arrived in the post. Gerard Ryle, ICIJ’s director, obtained the small black box as a result of his three-year investigation of Australia’s Firepower scandal, a case involving offshore havens and corporate fraud.

The hard drive contained more than 260 gigabytes, the equivalent of half a million books. Its files included 2m e-mails, four large databases. There were details of more than 122,000 offshore companies or trusts, and nearly 12,000 intermediaries (agents or “introducers”).

Unlike the smaller cache of US cables and war logs passed in 2010 to Wikileaks, theoffshore data was not structured or clean, but an unsorted collation of internal memos and instructions, official documents, emails, large and small databases and spreadsheets, scanned passports and accounting ledgers.

Analysing the immense quantity of information required “free text retrieval” software, which can work with huge volumes of unsorted data. Such high-end systems have been sold for more than a decade to intelligence agencies, law firms and commercial corporations. Journalism is just catching up.

In addition, Standard & Poor’s moved to downgrade Spain’s biggest banks amid the threat of a double-dip recession in the country.

Volumes were low with 2.86 billion shares trading on the New York Stock Exchange and only 1.2 billion in play on the Nasdaq. …
