IMA Webinar Broadcast: Recognizing Hostile Surveillance by Terrorist Groups and Organized Criminals

June 29, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am PDT

Step into the world of crime prevention with our immersive course on “Recognizing Hostile Surveillance”. This three-hour training is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills to detect and report effectively on hostile surveillance activities.

Hostile surveillance is a process by which individuals or groups systematically observe and gather information about a person, group, or location with malicious intent. This may be carried out by criminal groups, terrorists, stalkers, or any other entities with intent to harm or exploit. The purpose of hostile surveillance can vary, but it is often conducted as a precursor to serious crimes like kidnappings, bombings, thefts, or acts of terrorism. The surveillance provides valuable information to these individuals or groups, allowing them to plan and execute their harmful actions more effectively. They may be looking for patterns, routines, vulnerabilities, or any other useful information that would facilitate their intended crime.

This course will help you to:
· Understand the nature of surveillance tactics used by criminal groups and organized crime syndicates.
· Identify signs of physical and digital surveillance.
· Grasp the motivations behind criminal surveillance activities.
· Learn from real-world case studies to see how surveillance has been successfully detected and addressed.
· Develop effective strategies for countering surveillance and improving personal and professional security.
