The Intelligent Security Method™
Our customers are equipped with advanced tools and timely information to forge a proactive security posture. Dots are collected and analyzed. Threats are revealed. Alerts are issued. Investigations are launched. Partners collaborate. It all happens in advance of a potential incident, not after, and gets our customers “left of boom.”
TRAPWIRE is a comprehensive methodology for detecting threats in the planning stages and producing opportunities to prevent terrorist and criminal events. A security posture focused on prevention requires awareness, knowledge and tools. We provide it all in one centralized, highly secure and encrypted platform that is synchronized with our expert services and award-winning support.
Threat data provides little value if it is not in the hands of the right people at the right time. TRAPWIRE generates instant awareness for those who need to know.
STRUCTURED BY EXPERIENCE
TRAPWIRE data is shaped during input using methodologies developed through decades of real-world law enforcement, anti-terrorism, and intelligence operations experience. The resulting output provides our clients with actionable, timely information on threats facing their personnel and assets.
“Our continued interaction with TRAPWIRE is, without question, the most impactful and beneficial relationship we have established to protect our people and assets.”
“The extensive toolset we now have in TRAPWIRE is something we had been missing. This system has filled a significant gap in our operations.”
“TRAPWIRE has proven to be exactly the type of predictive analytical tool I had been looking for to protect DPS facilities and personnel from both terrorist and criminal events. DPS Troopers, Agents, and officers are still benefiting from the TrapWire surveillance detection training they received almost two years ago.”
“I see these indicators all the time, I just never knew what they were or what to do with them.”
“I wish I had had this training 20 years ago…I would have been doing my job very differently.”
A Well-Planned Assassination
In our previous post regarding a potential new modus operandi used by some terrorists, we made mention of the possibility that terror groups may now be developing hardened, professional cadres of assassins, rather than using suicide bombers or recruiting martyrs. We noted the similarity in this tactic with terror groups from the 1970s and 80s, including the Red Army Faction (RAF). In response to several queries we received about the tactics used by the RAF we have decided to post an analysis of an assassination carried out by the RAF in Germany in 1989.

Potentially Malicious Use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems Increases
This is an interesting report by the Combating Terrorism Center on the threats posed by drones and other unmanned aerial systems. At TRAPWIRE, we have noted a significant increase in the number of UAS-related incidents reported by both our private and public sector clients over the past 18 months. These incidents have often occurred at or near critical infrastructure, military installations and public venues. Regardless of whether the UAS operator was identified,
