Setting RF Spectrum Analysis Priorities

The complexity of the ambient RF spectrum environment requires a priority approach to RF technical analysis as the ever-advancing operational capability sees higher frequency collection Ranges of Interest (ROI) with many of the latest SDR hardware options, and the ability to store vast amounts of Spectra trace data and Raw IQ streaming files for a variety of real-world applications.

Many technical operators approach the analytical analysis phase, as a single full band, or frequency range equal to the capability of the search receiver or spectrum analyzer only, which results in large amounts of peripheral data, and a significant amount of time required to review what amounts to massive amounts of Spectra and Waterfall data during the collection and analysis cycle.

Kestrel TSCM ® Professional Software permits the technical operator to better focus attention and target specific sub-bands, as may be of primary interest, for active and passive analysis, while sending full receiver range data to the storage media, if required.

Focused targeted data results in smaller manageable file sizes and permits easy to navigate data, in a time compressed format, significantly enhancing analysis at the band or sub-band level.

Whether the goal is to target signal level, sub-band level, band level, or full Range of Interest (ROI) data from an analytical perspective, understanding the design standard and deployment methodology of the software, requires technical operator experience and training in the use and deployment for collection.

Professional Development TSCM Group Inc., conducts training worldwide, as well as at our Resident Training Centre (RTC) in Canada.

Understanding the under laying complexity and design methodology, simply cannot be learned by reading a user-manual or applying obsolete deployment techniques to modern equipment resources.

The Kestrel TSCM ® Professional Software opens the door to delivering new professional services beyond simply technical operator assisted sweeps.

Sheridan College | 20th Anniversary of the Investigation: Public and Private Program

Teaching at Sheridan College proved to be an awesome experience for me back in 2004 / 2005, instructing 2nd year students enrolled in the Investigation: Public and Private program.

I had the honor to teach at both the Brampton campus and Oakville campus during the same semester, which was a challenge requiring discipline in time management, while maintaining a full operational commitment at Professional Development TSCM Group Inc., and was without doubt, a very rewarding experience.

The experience gained helped me to better understand and focus our own industry Counter-Intelligence (CI), Technical Security (TSEC), Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) training and certification programs to meet the needs of a new generation of students soon to enter a real-would workplace, and interested in learning about economic and state sponsored espionage from a practical, rather than theoretical perspective.

I was able to join fellow alumni, past and present faculty members, various community partners, and most importantly, I had the opportunity to talk to and discuss the current challenges of the technical security industry with interested students.

A number of students presented an excellent array to projects, which tackled, some very complex real-word challenges, showing a strong commitment and dedication as the future decision makers in the development process of real-world security programs.

I also had the opportunity to reconnect with many business associates, who also instructed at Sheridan College over the years.

Many of whom, like me, were surprised to find out that we all passed through the doors of the college as faculty members, at one time or another over the past 20 years.

The 20th Anniversary is a true milestone that all involved at Sheridan College should be proud.

I look forward to speaking further with interested students about a possible career in the technical security field.

Economic Down Turn Effects Everyone - Really?

We often hear that the so-called economic down turn effects everyone.

Not really, those involved in corporate intelligence gathering, eavesdropping and economic espionage are thriving, as mass lay-offs, down-sizing, workplace adjustments mean one thing, opportunity for an invisible army of opportunists.

There is an open door for disgruntled and disillusioned employees and contractors to commit acts of corporate intelligence gathering, economic espionage (internal and external), and theft of proprietary information for personal gain, as a future self-employed competitor, or those hired by the competition.

Often the writing is on the wall weeks or even months before employees are actually subject to lay-off notices, or are terminated.

The vulnerabilities are even more pronounced when key personnel are subject to lay-off, leaving huge technical security gaps company wide that lead to a wide range of potential compromises, as remaining personnel try to fill the role of several employees.

The facts are clear, a formal Technical Security (TSEC) program is an essential best practice, in both good and bad economic times, but definitely required when there are adverse business viability challenges.

Kestrel TSCM ® Professional Software | Release Control v1.32xx

The following is a sneak preview of just some of the latest features pending for the v1.32xx release.

The first new feature is testing well in-house, providing a new innovative development milestone that is operator centric, and significantly enhances the technical operators situational awareness during runtime analysis.

Our new Horizontal Range Control (HRC) replaces the static horizontal receiver start and stop frequency display, for the connected receiver, and dynamically updates the "legal value" options, depending on which receiver is selected.

The exciting new HRC feature, automatically and dynamically imports operator defined Spectrum Profile File (SPF) options for runtime zoom selection, as organized bands for instant zoom selection and display.

For example, selecting the R2 | DECT 6.0 spectrum band, results in the precise Positional Zoom Control (PZC) display of the R2 | DECT 6.0 spectrum band allocation on the user-interface.

All of the standard included zoom capability, remains intact bringing the most powerful zoom control in the industry to the Kestrel TSCM ® Professional Software.

Yet another new feature pending release in v1.32xx is our new DSA Trace Limit (DTL) feature that automatically stops the current Differential Signal Analysis (DSA) Antenna Location at a defined number of traces.

DTL can be programmed to stop at any number of traces, selected from either a default option list, or a customized operator defined value.

This impressive new feature, programs the software to stop at the designated number of traces, while the technical operator is free to tackle other inspection parameters.

The DTL feature can also be programmed to produce an End Cycle Alarm (ECA) at the end of the current collection cycle, alerting the operator to move to the next DSA collection Antenna Location.

The "alerting" feature is directly integrated with the "Activity Scheduler" and automatically "alerts" when active, during each "Activity Scheduler" event.

We have also added a new PLAN button on the user-interface that invokes "display" or "hide" the floor plan window, without the need to select the the display via the standard menu structure.

It is said the "Science Never Sleeps", and frankly, neither does the mighty Kestrel ®, taking its place, "Advancing the Art and Science of Technical Security".

Strategic Global Cyber Security Trends Workshop

Professional Development TSCM Group Inc., and the Canadian Technical Security Professional Association (CTSPA) are also the primary sponsors of the Strategic Global Cyber Security Trends briefing being held in Toronto on Thursday, January 28, 2016 from 0830 hours to 1500 hours.

Do you really know what's going on within the network of your company?

How sure are you that your systems are secure from cyber attack or data breach?

Just like magic, cyber crime is misdirection.

Just like magicians, cyber criminals distract their victims and attack completely unobserved.

PDTG Inc., SpearTip and iOPW are thrilled to announce "Strategic Global Cyber Security Trends", the first of a recurring series of events aimed at increasing the awareness of CEOs, CIOs, key organizational stakeholders and executives about the continually progressing world of information security.

This complimentary event, facilitated and run by Paul Turner, Jarrett Kolthoff, and Anthony Han in the field of TSCM & cyber security, includes a small number of short and intriguing presentations on the current global and local threat landscape, and risk management strategies.

Unlike magicians who will always return your keys, or a penny, the damage that cyber criminals will leave on your revenue and reputation is very real.

Don't be deceived by the sliding hand of cyber crime.
