Counter Espionage Lecture (Corprate)
“You may not think others would be interested in your work. Maybe that's why you are losing contacts...”
Counter Espionage Lecture
Lecture lenght: 45-90 mins
Our Counter Espionage lecture (Corporate) is designed for those with no security training, executives from the legal or finance sector and is also ideal for C-level professionals. It is also be ideal for teams working on special projects.
The lecture covers many areas of concern such as basic to advanced steps on how to protect a business, litigation/Court case or specialist project from deliberate and targeted acts of corporate/industrial espionage.
This lecture has been delivered to day delegates at “Close Protection World” and British Bodyguard Association events in London and “The Executive Protection Specialist Group”, event in Manchester, England and at Facebook.
We are keen to work with Heads of Security to ensure that we are pushing their agendas where possible, and promoting their policies. If policy and procedure is an area of weakness, we are able to provide consultancy services to provide robust security policies and procedures across the organisation. For more information on consultancy services, see: Counter Espionage Services.
Aim of the lecture:
The Counter Espionage lecture's aim is to get attendees to 'buy-in' to the espionage risk, and to give a basic understanding of the following:
- Threats and risks (internal & external, industry specific)
- Technology (risks & vulnerabilities)
- Psychology & sociology
- Money, ideology, coercion, and ego
- Social engineering & pretext
- Sensitive project security procedures
- Technical Surveillance Counter Measures
This lecture is ideal for:
- Legal professionals
- Company directors
- CEOs, COOs & CFOs
- Project managers
The Cost of Espionage
The cost to commission acts of espionage is relatively cheap in relation to possible gains. The damage that could be caused by not having a basic understanding of espionage is unmeasurable. An act of espionage against your business or organisation could severely affect its profits, intellectual property or reputation.
Very few cases of industrial/corporate espionage are brought to court across the world. There are many reasons for this, ranging from the obvious damage to company reputation to lack of discovery of the crime until much later after the event.
It is true to say that most security or IT professionals have little or no understanding of espionage; it is simply not a subject that is covered in great detail during training or in university level education, if at all - we hope to change this!
At the end of each lecture we hold a Q&A session where we welcome any questions or concerns that the attendees may have. This enables them to identify any areas of concern and how they might be addressed with a workable and cost-effective solution.
