Against the backdrop of a significantly increased threat to intellectual property, information and data, the Perpetuity Training Academy – itself part of the Linx International Group – has announced the launch of a new eLearning course focused on the ‘Principles of Technical Security Countermeasures for Security Managers’.
Written by industry experts from within the Technical Surveillance Countermeasures Institute (TSCMi), this detailed Level 4 accredited course is intended to provide those managers responsible for security and risk functions with an insight into the threats posed to staff and intellectual property by malicious surveillance and, in particular, surveillance carried out using advanced technology.
The course will show learners how effective countermeasures may be identified and applied to mitigate the very real threat of unauthorised surveillance. An eLearning format means that study can take place around learners’ other commitments, with the scheduled completion time for the course being six months.
In terms of structure, there are four modules with one written assignment of 2,000 words per module. No examination is required. Tutor and administrative support is made available via e-mail, phone and Skype. Classroom attendance isn’t necessary.
The four modules are as follows:
Principles of Technical Surveillance
*The concept of technical surveillance. People and organisations currently employing it
*Technology and methodology of ingressive and non-
*Technical surveillance countermeasures equipment and how each technical surveillance discipline is countered by a range of countermeasures technology
Principles of Technical Countermeasures and Threat Mitigation
*How technical surveillance countermeasures can be deployed to meet different scenarios
*How conference and seminar venues may be secured from surveillance
*The threat to air, sea and land transport and how this can be met with effective technical countermeasures
Principles of Threat and Risk Analysis in the Context of Technical Surveillance
*Security threat analysis in the context of technical surveillance
*Electronic surveillance mitigation and risk reduction strategies
The Role of Technical Surveillance Countermeasures Consultants
*The competences and qualifications required of technical surveillance countermeasures consultants
*The importance of compliance with related legislation covering public communications, privacy, employment and Health and Safety
*The selection and contracting process and expectations of technical surveillance countermeasures consultants
Benefit to managers and directors
“Our collaboration with the TSCMi enables Perpetuity to provide yet another fantastic eLearning opportunity for prospective learners looking towards personal development,” observed David Gill MSc CSyP FSyI, managing director of the Linx International Group.
Gill added: “The Linx International Group is constantly looking to partner with leading organisations across the security business sector in order to provide the very best in training and qualifications for those working in this field. The Level 4 course entitled ‘Principles in Technical Security Countermeasures for Security Managers’ is at the cutting edge of the issues being tackled every day and is something of a ‘must’ for senior professionals. The eLearning platform is accessible anytime, anywhere, which makes it ideal for UK and international learners alike.”
The new course will be of immediate benefit to both managers and directors holding responsibility for developing and implementing security strategy, including the protection of intellectual property, information assets, reputation and people. Learners will discover who’s using surveillance technology and why, how to detail the threat within corporate risk registers and how security specialists can engage professional technical surveillance countermeasures support in order to assist them when it comes to combating the threat.
