What you need to know about Surveillance Detection

What is surveillance? It is the systematic observation by covert or overt means of person or location by visual, photographic or technical means. We all know before we conduct an Operation of any type, regardless if it is Military, Police or even a Protection Detail, we conduct a Reconnaissance before any operation, which sometimes will require us to do Surveillance.

Surveillance Detection, A Key To A Successful Protection Mission

What is Surveillance Detection? The techniques employed by the Protection Team to deter, prevent or stop surveillance on the Principal or Detail Members. Who conducts surveillance?? Press/Paparazzi, Stalkers, Fans, Criminals, Terrorist and Corporate Intelligence Agencies, this is the short list.

Surveillance Detection for Individuals

Individuals face a variety of threats in today’s global environment. By developing and applying a Surveillance Detection (SD) plan to the targets daily protection operations you can significantly reduce the likelihood of an attack on your target.

It is important to consider the other side in a discussion of surveillance detection sources and methods. In their discussion of fourth-generation warfare, Lind et al.8 noted that, “Terrorists use a free society’s freedom and openness, its greatest strengths, against it.” Many organizations, agencies, and localities deploy a tremendous amount of sensitive information over the Internet in a misguided attempt to achieve the ideal of “transparent government.” For example, a cursory review of municipal websites reveals everything from specific details regarding emergency response equipment, including equipment model numbers, to detailed, high-resolution images of sensitive locations.

How to Automate Surveillance Easily with Deep Learning

This article is a quick tutorial for implementing a surveillance system using Object Detection based on Deep Learning. It also compares the performance of different Object Detection models using GPU multiprocessing for inference, on Pedestrian Detection.

Surveillance detection is a fancy spy term for identifying if you are being followed. It is one of the best skills an individual can learn to protect themselves and the ones they love. In the “spy” world, being able to identify if you have surveillance or are being followed by the intelligence services of foreign government or a terrorist can mean the difference between life and death for yourself or anyone you meet. In fact, this invaluable skill is the difference between life and death in the real world, as well.

Surveillance Detection

A key skill for security and counter-terrorism professionals

Protective Intelligence can be described as the process of gathering and assessing information about entities that may have the intention and capability of harming you, and utilizing this information to protect your assets.

The Difficulties of Teaching Surveillance Detection

Since I occasionally get requests from people who want me to train them in surveillance detection, I thought it’ll be a good idea to explain why I very rarely teach SD courses anymore.

I want to make it very clear that what follows are my own personal opinions about the SD marketplace. It stands to reason that others might also share some of these opinions but I’m not trying to make any sweeping statements about the experiences of others or about the industry as a whole.

Security Tactics – The Experts at Locating Hidden Surveillance Devices

Security Tactics specialises in technical surveillance counter measures (TSCM). This includes “bug sweeping” for listening devices, but we also sweep for cameras, GPS trackers in vehicles and surveillance programs covertly installed on mobile phones.

Executive protection providers and clients have recently experienced an upsurge of interest in surveillance detection (SD). We’re seeing more articles and blogs posted on the matter, and we’re fielding more questions on SD than ever before. AS Solution has provided surveillance detection (SD) agents for a number of our clients for years. We also hold SD training courses for agents working in both the private and public sectors. This blog is not an SD how-to; there are already plenty of those on the web, some accurate, many less so. Rather, we aim to address the ten most common questions we hear about SD, especially as it concerns executive protection efforts in the US private sector.
