Abstract

See full text

A system for processing monitoring device data that includes a central processing server in communication with at least one monitoring device operable to receive the monitoring device data. The system further includes a processing rules data store having processing rules corresponding to the one or more identifiable targets and risk factor data that is linked to the occurrence of the event. The central processing server is configured to obtain a processing rule corresponding to the at least one target from the processing rules data store, perform a predictive analysis in which one or more risk factors in the monitoring device data are used to calculate a probability that the event will occur in generating a threat assessment, and generate a notification of the potential threat if the probability that the event will occur is higher than a predetermined threshold.
