This course covers the planning and conduct of protection operations at the senior management level. Students will explore the preparation, planning, personnel selection, and conduct of both short- and long- term protection operations, both domestic and overseas. They will learn methods for coordinating with local law enforcement, corporate security, and local business entities in the planning and conduct of protection operations. This course will distinguish intelligence gathering and threat assessment methods used in protection from those seen in other intelligence and counterterrorism applications. Students will learn how to integrate protection assets into multi-faceted strategic security operations with maximum efficiency.
