TSCM - The Inside Scoop on Insider Threat | Charles Patterson

Are we facing a post-pandemic, nightmare scenario where we've had corporate real estate all across the globe sat empty and unprotected against Technical Surveillance Counter Measures (TSCM) threats? 


In this episode, we're excited to welcome Charles Pattersona seasoned security expert of 40 years who has operated in the TSCM space for the last 25 years. Over the course of his long career, Charles has provided executive protection and technical support from the inside to security teams throughout the United States and the globe.


We chat with Charles about the following questions:

· In a highly connected, Internet of Things (IoT) world, what are the new challenges for the executive protection agent? 

· What are the simple things we're not doing that exposes gaps in our Principals’ protection?

· As hardware and devices get cheaper and more sophisticated, how can today’s EP/CP safeguard against emerging technical threats?

· And, if you're looking to get into TSCM or just want to improve your working knowledge, where and how can one get started?


Undoubtedly, as corporate clients and HNWs begin travelling again we’ll face unprecedented technical threats. In response, we need to level up our skills collectively. But we also need to know when to bring in the big guns and who to turn to.
