Infrastructure Liaison Officer (ILO) Course
This is a one-day course (8 hour) that trains and certifies private sector participants as Infrastructure Liaison Officers, working as private sector outreach and liaison with their fusion centers and/or FBI sponsored InfraGard Chapter. The course covers their roles and responsibilities, the regional, state and national level “fusion” or “intelligence” community, including key definitions and concepts, and finally the threat, terrorism. Impressive “stats” from this training course, particularly in California with InfraGard Los Angeles, have been getting national attention. This has been modified for “sector specific” ILO courses focusing on Education, Energy, Health, Water, etc., wherein specialized expert speakers and exercises are incorporated with the baseline curriculum.
Counter Surveillance Training Program
A terrorist attack relies on surprise. The potential for an attack plan to be uncovered and compromised exists across all phases of the attack-chain, but the most vulnerable pre-operational activities in the attack planning cycle is target selection, target site surveillance and Target System Analysis (TSA). These activities are critical to completing an attack plan and require terrorists to physically scout their potential objectives. While conducting these activities, attack planners must attempt to blend in with the crowd—in their actions and demeanor—in order to escape observation. The most significant deterrence to this type of threat-related activity, therefore, is to demonstrate an unambiguous heightened vigilance and keen situational awareness. Early on in the target assessment process, attack planners seek to gauge the presence of personnel, security or otherwise, trained to recognize the signatures of potential malicious intent.
With this in mind, our training approach includes a mix of proven terrorism-prevention tactics, techniques, and procedures that will ensure on-site employees and contractors have the knowledge, plans, and tools necessary to achieve this heightened level of vigilance. The training and exercise concept is built on four core concepts:
- Threat Awareness – Establish and communicate the current threat situation.
- Pre-Incident Indicator Awareness – Know what to look for and how to report it.
- Engagement and Outreach – Facilitate partnerships and networking.
- Red-Teaming – Facilitate a surveillance-detection field activity.
Terrorism Recognition, Awareness and Prevention Partnership (TRAPP)
TRAPP is a powerful four hour or half day training event that puts the power of knowledge and understanding behind the “see something, say something campaign.” Whether as a stand-alone terrorism prevention and outreach training event to either public or private sector students, or as a key component of a fusion center’s FLO, TLO or ILO certification program, TRAPP is the most cost effective way to develop that collaborative effort and information sharing environment. Terrorist attacks are horrible, but too many times we discover they were also preventable. Suspicious Activity wasn’t recognized, and how too securely report it wasn’t understood, and pre-incident indicators were simply missed.
About 75% of TRAPP is aimed at understanding terrorism, especially the pre-incident indicators of terrorist actions, and 25% understanding the system in place for reporting, both the fusion centers and FBI. It’s building an appreciation of the threat, and how to leverage the system in place to stop it. It’s about stopping the next San Bernardino, Colorado Springs, Chattanooga, Charleston or Boston Marathon attack. Aimed at audiences from 50-500, and usually done in both AM and PM four hour sessions in a training day, TRAPP can easily accommodate training 1000+ people day, venue permitting.
Mastering Influence – Human Engineering

Cyber Threats and Crime
The Cyber Threat to the United States is the most serious challenge facing our country today.

These attacks have compromised operational security and national security.
This course will increase your awareness of these threats and provide training on specific practical countermeasures including live demonstrations of attack technique and undercover Internet based investigations.
Targeted Violence Prevention (TVP)
Targeted Violence Prevention is a proven, operationally relevant methodology of assessing students and others who may be on pathway to violence. This course is about what it takes and what we must know to prevent the next Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook, Santa Barbara Isla Vista or Charleston AME attack. From understanding the psychology or mindset of these killers, what are their motivations and what are the pre-incident indicators (PIIs) to look and listen for, this course is about timely identification and reporting of suspicious behavior to prevent these kinds of deadly attacks.
Dr. Tony Beliz, PhD is a nationally renowned forensic psychologist specializing in preventing violence. As Deputy Director of Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (CLACDMH) Emergency Outreach Bureau, Dr. Beliz developed a national reputation by expanding and developing cutting edge field-based programs for critical incident response and psychiatric emergencies. These field programs are what teams used in response to the 2013 LAX shooting, along with numerous barricade and hostage situations, suicidal or homicidal persons response, and celebrity stalkers or identifying persons of interest.

Crisis Action Planning Workshop

Using proven military planning processes (e.g., Military Decision-Making Process, Joint Planning Process, Marine Corps Planning Process and even Rapid Response Planning Process) in tailored, hybrid approach, it not only develops optimal operational plans, but also is instrumental in developing bona fide intelligence requirements dealing with real world threats and major contingencies, and for targeting the intelligence towards mission essential situational awareness and understanding – what is truly needed for decision makers.

This course includes awareness exercises, as well as creative activities that will aid in illustrating the full spectrum of HT from labor to sex trafficking, as well as domestic and international cases.
Gap Analysis Workshop
This is a one day workshop or series of workshops that look at the variety of threats (and sometimes opportunities) facing government and larger corporations, or joint activities, then weighs the risks and vulnerability, and develops priorities that are eventually geared towards developing courses of action. It blends tabletop exercise or discussion using various analytical tools, and easily incorporates data from various database systems like Digital Sandbox. For Urban Area Security Initiative grant recipients, DHS has required this kind of rigorous analytical approach in determining where to allocate those funds. The Gap Analysis Workshop follows the standards established by PPD-8, the National Preparedness System (NPS), and the National Preparedness Goal (NPG).
