Covert Tradecraft and Surveillance Training
With a team of experts drawn from the UK government and security agencies, Special Forces, military, police and the National Crime Agency (NCA) we provide an extensive range training in covert tradecraft, agent recruitment and running, expeditionary surveillance, foot and mobile surveillance, technical surveillance, close target reconnaissance, covert rural surveillance (CROPS), covert method of entry and associated disciplines.
Running and managing covert operations is a highly specialised area requiring a range of skills, abilities, covert equipment, and other covert assets.
Having an effective covert capability brings with it significant operational advantages and provides options for operational managers not otherwise available, enabling intelligence gathering operations and investigations to be delivered more effectively. Futurum supports clients in developing and maintaining an effective skill base and infrastructure to run these operations.
We cover all aspects of covert operations including conventional surveillance, foot and mobile surveillance, technical surveillance, covert method of entry, reconnaissance, close target reconnaissance (CTR), agent (also referred to as CHIS, informants, covert sources) recruitment running and management. We also have an extensive intelligence, social media and open source exploitation and analysis, and Internet investigation portfolio that is designed to help develop the analysis skills along side, and integral to the covert capability.
