So this is the episode you’ve all been waiting for and no doubt expected me to roll out with Ami Toben. We go deep into surveillance detection in this episode. We dispel rumors on the topic and we discuss salient techniques and tactics that are being used in the real world. Ami is at the top of the game and a very sought after instructor and specialists on this content as I’m sure you’re all aware judging from the following he has on his blog Protection Circle and his best-selling book Surveillance Zone. It was an honor and privilege to have a discussion like this with such a sought after specialist on this topic. What I really enjoyed is how he breaks a lot of the concepts down and relate them with real-world tactics so everything makes sense and isn’t over-the-top technical. Ami Is a wealth of knowledge and I believe we will all get something out of this episode once again. If you liked this episode I want to encourage you to go back and check out the first two episodes (46 & 47) I did with Ami on Terrorist Activity Prevention.
