We know that ISIS has been operating in all 50 U.S. States and many other countries. We also know that terrorist organizations have a planning cycle which includes conducting hostile surveillance for weeks, months and even years prior to an attack. This seminar will inform participants on the terrorist planning cycle, what hostile surveillants look for, how hostile surveillance is conducted and what preventive security counter measures can be taken to identify hostile surveillance and prevent attacks.

Learning Objectives

Participants will learn about:

  • Terrorist Trends
  • Surveillance Detection as a security strategy
  • Activities indicative of hostile surveillance
  • Terrorist planning cycle
  • Techniques/Ruses used by hostile surveillants
  • Hostile surveillants requirements
  • Best times in the terrorist planning cycle to identify and report surveillance
  • Brief review of a comprehensive process to protect your facility
  • Who should be trained in hostile surveillance
