Learning outcomes: 

  • To provide students a basic understanding of threats from eavesdropping
  • To provide an understanding of how to discover threats from eavesdropping
  • To give students the ability to perform a basic TSCM search
  • To give students the ability to use Lockhart TSCM equipment, and introduce other equipment

Who should attend? 

The course is directed toward anybody with an interest in, or remit to, defend against threats from espionage, with little or no background in TSCM.  The course is aimed towards people whose intention is they will be protecting their own infrastructure, but can also be beneficial as a top-level management overview to understand the threats and possible countermeasures with the view to implementing measures to protect against them.

Advanced TSCM

This goes into a lot more detail, includes foundation theory, more detailed attack information and tradecraft for undertaking commercial sweeps.  Practical experience will include using a range of different types of equipment on the market, and sweeping in several different types of room.

Length – 5 days

Venue – KSL office, Northampton

Places – 4-6

Next Date – October 2023

This course goes into considerably more detail than the TSCM Introduction course, with more background and depth as to how and why people attack – ‘attack and defend’ techniques, allowing the candidate to have better knowledge and understanding of what they are looking for.  Training will involve a range of equipment to find devices, not just Lockhart TSCM.

This course would involve practical, scenario-based sessions. It would allow the candidate to plan and conduct a physical and electronic inspection.

Learning Outcomes: 

  • To provide students a thorough understanding of threats from eavesdropping
  • To provide understanding of how to discover threats from eavesdropping
  • To give students an ability to perform more in-depth TSCM search
  • To give students practical experience sweeping in a variety of environments
  • To teach students to use a broad range of sweeping devices commercially available

Who should attend?

The course is directed toward people intending to become practitioners of TSCM; those who will sweep for eavesdropping devices, either for themselves or others.  The course is geared to those with some experience in attack or sweep already, or those who have attended the TSCM Introduction course previously. Please contact us to check eligibility for this course.
