A World of Opportunity – On Both Sides!

It has never been easier for individuals and state players to engage in economic-espionage activities targeting businesses, organizations and governments worldwide. There are many avenues of attack, any one of which has the potential to compromise valuable information.

Yet, although annual losses from economic-espionage are immense, many potential targets are largely unaware of the threat - indeed, the victims often have little or no awareness that they have been successfully targeted.

Contrast this situation with the realities facing those tasked with technical security. Even highly trained and experienced technical operators are hard pressed to keep on top of the rapidly evolving threat environment.

 Up to date knowledge of the actors, their tools and methods, coupled with the specialist expertise needed to identify and pro-actively counter threats, is a necessity. Consequently, it is important for the technical security practitioner to leverage the expertise resident in the Technical Security community of practice through participation in relevant activities such as the annual Canadian Technical Security Conference (CTSC).

The CTSC, now in its 12th year, is a focused technical security event that brings together professional technical operators and others having a range of related interests. This year’s conference has a special focus on the threat of economic-espionage with emphasis on the means for combating it.

Over a three-day period, participants will acquire relevant theoretical and practical knowledge, including opportunities for hands-on experience with Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM), a vital, but often over-looked, line of defence for safeguarding information in a technological world.

Participation in activities, such as the Canadian Technical Security Conference (CTSC), positions technical operators and knowledgeable clients to identify potential and actual security compromises and respond appropriately.

It just might be an investment that will pay off by helping prevent or limit damage to your organization.
