Surveillance Detection Training in Light of the Attacks in Paris

Details are emerging that support our initial assessment that the Paris attacks were well-planned – including extensive surveillance of the intended targets ahead of the operations. Law enforcement and private security officers, as well as private citizens are being encouraged by the US government to report “suspicious activity” immediately. Identifying what exactly this activity is can be challenging. We would like to remind our clients that we provide a suite of Surveillance and Threat Detection Training seminars designed to teach participants what exactly hostile surveillance looks like, and how to report it accurately. Please contact us to scheduled new or refresher training for your personnel.

Unique Expertise
Our software and services are backed by personnel with real-world experience conducting operations on behalf of US intelligence and military agencies around the globe.
Distinct Methodology

Analysis Ready
Incidents should not be considered in isolation. Analysis tools built into the TrapWire system help you identify the signal through the noise in order to direct resources and respond appropriately.

Experience Matters
Our US and international clients consistently seek us out due to the deep domain expertise we bring in the areas of counter-terrorism, surveillance detection, intelligence collection and analysis. By combining our operational expertise with expert technologists, we have developed a highly effective means of assisting law enforcement and security personnel in the prevention of terrorist attacks and criminal activity.
Prevention vs. Mitigation
TrapWire is a unique, predictive software system that has been proven highly effective in detecting patterns of behavior indicative of hostile surveillance. This capability represents a new, proactive approach to anti-terror and anti-crime operations. While Gates, Guns and Guards are essential elements of any sound security plan, they are designed to react to the event once it is underway, rather than preventing the incident from happening in the first place.
Network Effect
When planning an operation, terrorists and criminals usually conduct detailed surveillance against multiple targets in order to identify the site(s) that afford the greatest likelihood of success. TrapWire’s networked environment allows for instant comparisons of multiple events across traditional geographic and organizational boundaries.
