Defining the Challenges of a Modern Moving Target Threat Model: Exploiting the Advantages of a formal Technical and Cyber Security Program

  • Traditional security approaches have relied on the ad hoc application of Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM), Physical Security and Cyber Security concepts. Unfortunately, the resulting piecemeal approach to security is certain to leave gaps and weaknesses that will be found and exploited by a determined and resourceful attacker. At the same time, advances in technology are creating seemingly infinite opportunities for attackers:

    Powerful tools for compromising information technology and communications systems continue to be developed and deployed;

  • Sophisticated, surveillance technologies are widely available at low cost;

  • Data can be collected from publicly available sources for use in an intelligence context (open-source intelligence);

  • Social engineering approaches can be used to acquire information from an organization's employees (HUMINT), induce them to make mistakes, or be used to spread misinformation to damage an organization's reputation.

A Poorly Implemented Technical Security Program Fools Everyone — But the Attacker...

While there is an increasingly compelling case that stovepipe security approaches are increasingly inadequate to defend against current and emerging threats, the security industry has been slow to move towards an integrated security model.

This situation reflects several issues that pervade the industry. One is short term thinking that focuses on the current perception of the threat environment. Another is the fragmentation and compartmentalization of the industry.

Many players are comfortably entrenched in their own niches and see anything that might affect their existing business models as a threat rather than an opportunity. Consequently, they focus on the promotion of their own specialties while downplaying others.

Furthermore, organizational leaders are often reluctant to recognize the scope and magnitude of the problem. Indeed, their organizations may have already been successfully targeted without their leaders or security teams realizing it.

CTSC 2019 | Paul D Turner, TSS TSI

This situation must and will change as the limitations of existing approaches become ever more conspicuous. Security practitioners who are able to think in terms of coherent and systematic approaches to security and work effectively with other industry experts will find themselves better positioned to benefit in terms of both business and professional successes.

NAV CENTRE is the permanent home and Resident Training Centre (RTC) of Professional Development TSCM Group Inc., and is perhaps the best kept secrets in the Ottawa area. Professional Development provides advanced training for Canadian, North American and international students from the private and public sector worldwide.

NAV CENTRE is home base for the Canadian Technical Security Conference (CTSC) TM here in Canada providing a dedicated secure environment for the CTSC event.

The reality is that consumer and commercial level technological developments are converging, opening up new possibilities for all technical security professionals who maintain strong technical and administrative skill sets across a wide knowledge base.

At the same time, a wide variety of new technological threats are emerging, and these threats could compromise technical security and place tremendous demands on, and pose significant challenges to technical security programs, physical infrastructure and the information technology architecture.

Technical security professionals, at all operational threat levels, from private individuals, small businesses, corporate security directors, governments, and military operators will need to be informed and prepared, not only here in Canada, but around the globe as business interests become globally mobile.

That is why you need to be a part of the exclusive group of technical security practitioners and industry support professionals at CTSC 2020.

CTSC 2019 is a not to be missed three (3) day professional development and networking opportunity with others working in the field of technical security.

So plan now to attend, present, demonstrate, exhibit, network, compete in our original, world famous “Bug-Off”, attend hospitality night, enjoy the keynote speaker at our always entertaining casual Dinner and Awards night, learn something new, see what is on the horizon, and extend your professional credibility with renewed knowledge and hands on experience.
