San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 14, 2011
Henley-Putnam University’s next free webinar provides a detailed overview of the field of counterintelligence (CI), an often misunderstood and mysterious subset of the intelligence and law enforcement communities.
On Thursday, April 21st, 2011 at 1:00 PM, EDT, Colonel Michael Angley, former U.S. Air Force OSI Special Agent and Senior Military Advisor to Henley-Putnam University, will explain the nature of counterintelligence as prescribed by current Executive Orders, the differences between defensive and offensive approaches to CI, the major agencies that conduct CI, and the limitations the U.S. government places on CI activities.
During the Cold War, Foreign Intelligence Services (FIS) posed the greatest threat to American security, necessitating a focus upon what are now regarded as the traditional elements of CI. Although crimes such as espionage, sabotage, and assassination remain serious and continue to demand attention from U.S. intelligence, today the greatest and most immediate concern is terrorism. As serious time-sensitive threats emerge, masters of the CI model oversee the execution of intricate and highly classified prevention strategies.
“Terrorists overseas are quickly learning how to dilute and disguise their true plans and information,” says Colonel Angley. “To keep America safe and secure, those in the field of counterintelligence must remain one step ahead of those posing potentially devastating threats to our prosperity. The likelihood for terrorists to make and deploy explosives in the U.S. is high, and without aggressive CI professionals to take swift action, our nation could face detrimental loss.”
