The eavesdropper’s methods of physically penetrating his/her target are described as are their methods of concealing his eavesdropping devices.
THE TOOLS OF THE TSCM INSPECTOR
Detailed descriptions of the detection devices used by the TSCM inspector in conducting inspections are accompanied by demonstrations that display their effectiveness.
STRATEGY & TACTICS FOR THE TSCM INSPECTION
The tactics to be used in conducting a TSCM inspection in ways that are most likely to deceive the eavesdropper are described. The use of a check list in that process to organize a sweep team’s activities for maximum efficiency is included.
DEALING WITH CONTINGENCIES
The features of a contingency plan to be used at the time that the eavesdropping activity is detected is described. A detailed check list of the things to be considered at the time of a discovery is included in this presentation.
DESIGN FEATURES OF SECURE AREAS
Whether a special secure room is to be constructed or an existing room is to be made secure, this program is useful in illustrating the points of vulnerability that may be exploited by a professional eavesdropper. The ways that the vulnerabilities can be reduced are described.
Familiarization of various equipment types and established procedures are promoted and demonstrated throughout the training process. The applications & techniques of a professional sweep are stressed in our hands-on approach. This ensures that every participant gains the information necessary to assist in conducting a basic TSCM inspection in the field.
Upon successful completition of this training program, a Mounted Certificate of Completition will be awarded in “Technical Surveillance Countermeasures.”
Instruction include practical hands-on demonstrations of devices from various manufacturers discussed in the program.
