    TSCM - The Inside Scoop on Insider Threat | Charles Patterson

    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 Patterson, a 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.

    Listen to stay sharp and at the forefront of the latest developments on this episode!

    As always, drop us a comment or leave us a review to let us know your thoughts.

    Executive Protection and the Family Office | Kate Bright

    Executive Protection and the Family Office | Kate Bright

    Today we welcome, Kate Bright, who started out as PA in a family office and has gone on to have a very successful career in the close protection industry.

    Because the family office is often seen as a hurdle between protectors and a well-executed task, Kate made it a mission to understand both sides of the equation. Already being familiar with the workings of a family office, she decided to embark on a journey to understand the unique role protectors provide.

    Now 20 years later, Kate has consulted on private security matters for HNW clients and has created a successful business that bridges both aspects, including setting up her award-winning recruitment and concierge firm, UMBRA International Group. She is also currently an advisor to the SIA board.

    In this episode, we discuss:
    · Kate's journey from PA to CP and what she learned along the way that can benefit all protectors.
    · Strategies for more effective interfacing with the family office.
    · How we can benefit by understanding the different types of family offices and their particular dynamics.
    · The effects of COVID and the unexpected opportunities it's created.

    Physical/Cyber Convergence - Live from Dubai w/Brian Seeley & Nathan Swain

    Physical/Cyber Convergence - Live from Dubai w/Brian Seeley & Nathan Swain

    This week Phelim goes to Dubai to attend GISEC - an actual live, in-person cybersecurity event! That’s right, folks. It’s not a typo. So… is this a sign that things are returning to normal or are we jumping the gun here, people?

    Listen in to find out how it all went as Phelim chats with two of the top speakers from the event. One is a U.S. Marine, Brian Seely, who is the only person EVER to hack into and wiretap the U.S. Secret Service and FBI. And the other, Nathan Swain has a list of equally exciting roles, including having safeguarded the virtual vaults of the Bank of England as its former Lead Cyber Security Advisor.

    Find out more about our esteemed guests and the behind the scenes knowledge and wisdom they shared on this week’s episode!

    Nathan Swain is a Senior Security Advisor and former Security Advisor to the UK Government, former CISO ADSS, and former Lead Cyber Security Advisor to the Bank of England. In this segment, we talk about:
    · Industry snobbery and the Technorati
    · The current state of play with cyber convergence in the Middle East
    · Information security, is it another string on the bow for a physical security specialist or is it a leap into a whole different industry?

    Bryan Seely is a world-renowned hacker, cybersecurity expert, author and former U.S. Marine. Seely became one of the most famous hackers in 2014 when he became the only person ever to wiretap the United States Secret Service and FBI.
    We discuss:
    · What it means to be a renaissance man
    · Taking lessons from Marcus Aurelius with the aim to be more humble
    · And Brian's top tip for bodyguards – You won’t want to miss this one!

    The Future of Tactical Communications | Andy Clark

    The Future of Tactical Communications | Andy Clark

    Tactical Communications is arguably one of the most overlooked and under-appreciated disciplines in modern executive protection. There's little coverage of it in an operator's initial training and it does not fare much better from there.

    This week we have life-long communications specialist, Andy Clark, of G6 Global, on the show to readdress the balance and state the case for why comms should have more onus placed on it.

    Medical Skills for the Executive Protection Professional | Paul Steward

    Medical Skills for the Executive Protection Professional, should it be mandatory? Should they be improved? Should we have a paramedic embedded within the team?

    Paul is a highly experienced frontline NHS paramedic and has vast experience operating within the executive protection sphere advising family offices and HNW's on their medical strategies.
