Technical Surveillance CounterMeasures

Risk Management

To acquaint the security director and the Technical Surveillance CounterMeasures (TSCM) inspector with the nature of the eavesdropping threat and the ways that it can be countered. To provide the attendee with information that he can apply to his own situation when designing and maintaining his eavesdropping defense.
The subject is presented in a series of class lectures, technical demonstrations & practical exercises that include the following:
Eavesdropping Techniques:
Methods of Detecting or Defeating Them
The eavesdropper's methods of physically penetrating his target are described as are his 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 his inspections are accompanied by "hands-on" demonstrations that display their degree of 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 lecture 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.
This training course is provided at World Institute for Security Enhancement training locations throughout the United States of America. 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 conduct a basic TSCM inspection in the field.
To assist in the acquisition of TSCM, Physical Search hand tools, a metal case with tool pallet insert is provided for each class participant. Instruction includes practical hands-on demonstrations of devices from various manufacturers discussed in the program. The World Institute does not sell equipment or represent any security manufacturers.
