The multi-billion dollar surveillance market places sophisticated spy technology into the hands of civilians who are deploying advanced covert technology on an unprecedented scale and with widespread consequences.
Spy Nation: Eavesdropping, Surveillance And Espionage: Threats, Techniques, Counter-Measures is a new 12-hour online surveillance, counter-surveillance and counter-espionage program specifically designed for security professionals including law enforcement, private investigators, military personnel, foreign service and diplomatic staff, clandestine services, security contractors and security advisors.
Spy Nation was independently developed around the award-winning Red Balloon video series created by counter-surveillance expert Charlie Taylor as well as the book, TSCM 101: Eavesdropping, Surveillance & Espionage: Threats, Techniques & Counter-Measures authored by Norbert Zaenglein. Spy Nation online training series is further supported by over 250 high-quality PowerPoint slides that illustrate surveillance and counter-surveillance techniques in a manner that maximizes learning and retention.
Students can conveniently attend Spy Nation from home, while at the office or on the road from PC, Tablet, iPad, iPhone, Android or Mac using the popular GoToMeeting platform. And, Spy Nation has built-in flexibility to fit busy international work and travel schedules.
While the lawful use of civilian surveillance technology can be a powerful deterrent to crime and catch crooks in the act, the growing use of illegal surveillance by the general public has enormous social and economic consequences.
Civilian surveillance technology makes it simple for amateur spies to target corporate trade secrets, proprietary information and classified government and military information. Civilians are also falling victim to surveillance technology including spy cams disguised as ordinary household objects that blend seamlessly into private environments.
Spy Nation online counter-surveillance seminars are ideal for busy security professionals, groups and organizations. Schools with criminal justice programs can blend Spy Nation into existing curricula to deliver cutting-edge education and provide students with well-rounded perspectives into modern surveillance threats, techniques and counter-measures.
