Case Study

The Panama Papers: Analyzing the largest data leak ever

The leak of more than 2.5 million confidential files to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) exposed the previously secret offshore financial activities of over 120,000 companies, politicians, financial criminals, and wealthy individuals in over 170 countries.

It was the leak of a lifetime for any investigative journalist, but sifting through the gigabytes of information presented a logistical nightmare. Nuix’s eDiscovery tools helped solve these problems by:

  • Making available for analysis millions of spreadsheets, documents, emails, and other unstructured data in many different formats and languages
  • Generating network diagrams to visualize relationships between people and data
  • Removing duplicates and other irrelevant data
  • Enabling 86 journalists in 46 countries and 38 media organizations to analyze the data collaboratively
