TSEC Audit - The Missing IT Link!

Presented by: Paul D Turner, TSS TSI, TSCM Group Inc.

Economic espionage affects all business, corporate and government entities, regardless of size or type. Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) is an essential business practice that is oftentimes, misunderstood, or overlooked entirely. Learn what TSEC is all about, and where TSEC fits into the corporate organizational structure. Understand the importance of implementing a formal TSEC program, and gain a working understanding of the various operational elements involved in conducting corporate level sweeps.

See a demonstration, and learn about some of the common TSCM equipment resources utilized by professional Technical Security Specialists (TSS). Paul will round out the presentation with a question and answer opportunity.

About the Chapter

What are the benefits of joining the Chapter?
Black and White Globe

Established in 1991, the mission of the Ottawa Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) is to provide a friendly, interactive environment for those with an interest in information security. Through meetings, guest speakers, discussion forums, this website and the concerted efforts of our members, we strive to accomplish this goal.
