Executive Protection, Bodyguarding And Close Protection
Recently, I was totting up that over the past six years, I have worked in more than 20 countries spread over a number of continents Not all of these were places where I was running Executive Protection (EP) details, some were exercises in Risk & Crisis Analysis. The very fact that one is having to provide security advice or physical cover for visiting senior executives, assumes that the geography itself has inherent dangers. This is usually the case with many Third World environments where a combination of poverty, corruption, organised and disorganised crime, makes operating conditions for Western multi-national organisations fraught with difficulties and sometimes danger.

Interrogation Procedures: Promises of Leniency
For a confession to be admissible as evidence it must not only be trustworthy, but also voluntary. The test of voluntariness answers the question, “was a statement made of the suspect’s free will?” The concept of “free will” has a somewhat different meaning in law than it does in psychology. A psychologist would argue that if a person is able to make any behavioral choice he is operating from his own free will. Legally, however, the concept of free will relates to whether a statement was made in the absence of threats or other inducements. These “other inducements” generally refer to promises of leniency.

Computer forensics in the age of compliance
Breaking down the process for FISMA, PCI and HIPAA

Digital forensics is the process of using the scientific method to examine digital media in order to establish facts for legal purposes, especially judicial review. It involves the systematic inspection of IT systems, especially data-storage devices, for evidence of a civil wrongdoing or criminal act.

Catching A Suspect In A Lie: Not Always A Symptom Of Guilt
A skilled investigator learns to withhold certain inside information from a suspect during an interview in the hope that he can catch the suspect in a lie. For example, the suspect may lie about knowing the victim, being in the vicinity of the crime or having a prior conviction. This documented lie can later be used to good advantage during an interrogation where the investigator states that just as he knows the suspect lied about (knowing the victim) the investigator also knows that the suspect committed the crime. Furthermore, the documented lie can be used to impeach the suspect’s credibility and character, e.g., “If you don’t get this straightened out today no one is ever going to believe anything you have to say in the future. People are going to say, ‘We know Fred lied about knowing her, Fred is probably also lying when he says that he is sorry he did this.’” A John Reid Article
