ESRM Round Up
April 08, 2014 | By vicki
This prestigious event took place on 25th March in London, and brought together the world’s leading experts on Risk & Security. It chartered the latest industry developments and most pressing security risks of tomorrow.
Our Senior Technical Surveillance Counter Measure (TSCM) operator, who is a leading expert in his field, presented on the threat of Corporate Espionage resulting from Technical Surveillance at the event.
“Every organisation has information assurance structure and a risk management policy. When they look at security, they generally look at is as a Physical element, and as an Information Technology element. What a lot of corporate bodies miss is that there is a gap in the middle. A gap where proximal technical surveillance devices, can easily evade Physical and Cyber Security. Their detection is a specialist area for Technical Surveillance Counter Measures operators.”
His key message of the day was that education in Technical Surveillance Counter Measures shouldn’t be overlooked. A lot of the time, security officers, both physical and IT, perceive Technical Surveillance to be a lo-tech Hollywood based threat. This lack of understanding and knowledge of their vulnerabilities leave organisations exposed to the risk.
