|Spooky Israeli business intelligence agency|
The company was founded in 2010 by former Israeli intelligence officers Dan Zorella and Avi Yanus. Its employees include former members of Israeli intelligence units, including Aman, Mossad and Shin Bet, as well as legal and financial experts.
Black Cube's main business is "litigation support", in which the company provides intelligence, evidence and advisory services in multi-jurisdictional legal and white collar crime cases.
Black Cube gathered information about women accusing Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment to try to help him escape conviction. Summit News reported that "tried to intimidate journalist Ronan Farrow in order to “bury the truth” about Weinstein’s activity." Asher Tishler, a member of Black Cube’s advisory board, remarked “In retrospect, it’s a shame we took the job.“
Black Cube’s Human intelligence capabilities have proved to be an effective way of exposing fraud, bribery, money laundering and corruption. The company uncovered high-level corruption in the judicial systems of Italy and Panama.
