Threat Assessments

The GHT Global Security Threat Assessment is a valuable and insightful opportunity for you to evaluate the effectiveness of your current physical and cyber security infrastructure. Want to know if malware has infiltrated your systems? If sensitive data is being lost? How unauthorised access to your buildings can be achieved? Where the gaps in your security solution are? The GHT Global Security Threat Assessment reveals your true security posture by detecting both active and potential threats that are evading your existing physical and cyber security measures.


Security Strategies

GHT Global develops security strategies that lay out the actions that are necessary to move toward a complete integrated security system. The effective strategy GHT Global will produce is comprehensive and dynamic, with the flexibility to respond to any type of security threat. We understand developing a security strategy is an iterative process that involves initial assessment, planning, implementation, and constant evaluation. The strategy may include a combination of actions that counter possible threats and vulnerabilities: policies and procedures, access management measures, communications systems and technologies, and systems integration practices.


Intelligence and Analysis

GHT Global supports clients to ensure they have the right capabilities in place to capture relevant and available intelligence appropriate to their threat and risk profile. Through a combination of deep penetration of the internet, intelligent and targeted open source assessments and utilising discreet partner networks we can deliver cost effective intelligence products or develop a cost effective internal capability. We also have access to superior analytical capabilities to ensure intelligence is exploited to best effect.


Business Change & Continuity

GHT Global will work with you to develop a holistic approach to managing complex change programmes that has clarity of vision and leadership, engagement of staff and all key stakeholders where everyone understands their role and purpose in the change initiative and has clarity about how they contribute to the overall transformation programme. We will work with you to develop a benefits management framework to ensure that benefits are identified early and that processes are put in place for benefit realisation. GHT Global has worked with a wide range of industry specialists such as systems integrators, technology companies and blue chip consultancies, as well as public sector organisations to design and deliver complex business changes designed to deliver transformational level changes in efficiency and effectiveness. We have a large in house training capability to support change programmes and have a vast network of accomplished operational, academic and business trainers. Our trainers are qualified and accredited within their fields of expertise and have extensive track records.


Multi-Spectrum Penetrations Tests

Once commissioned for a project, our specialist security team are able to replicate malicious intruders and carry out covert hostile target reconnaissance (both physical and cyber) followed by a number of full-blown covert attacks against your organisation. Working within pre-agreed rules the team use a wide range of techniques to try and gain access and bypass vulnerable security defences. Our sophisticated practices include: physical and cyber social engineering, covert entry, intelligence gathering, network exploitation and technical surveillance. At the end of the task we provide a detailed recommendation report and debrief detailing the security vulnerabilities and key areas for remediation.


Technical Surveillance Counter Measures (TSCM)

GHT Global specialises in the field of (TSCM) Technical Surveillance Counter Measures using the most advanced knowledge and up to date equipment on the market to protect our clients. TSCM (also known as electronic bug detection, bug sweeping or surveillance counter measures) is the method of electronically and physically inspecting offices, buildings, homes, vehicles, telephone systems, network systems and cabling for the existence of eavesdropping devices and to identify weaknesses in security that could potentially be used to install illegal devices. Our equipment is second to none, using the most technologically advanced hardware and software available globally and methods perfected through years of experience within counter surveillance bug and camera detection.


Surveillance

GHT Global surveillance enables the monitoring of behaviour, activities or habits of a person or groups to obtain evidential information. Our surveillance packages are fully discussed prior to planning and deployment of our Specialist Surveillance Operatives. Each member of the GHT Global surveillance team is highly trained and skilled in the art of surveillance with extensive operational Military or Police experience. Depending on the circumstances, the period of surveillance will range from a few hours to a few days or to a period of weeks. GHT Global conducts surveillance tasks both within the UK and overseas.


Investigations

GHT Global is an expert investigations company that utilises up to date skills drawn from the police service to conduct ethical and thorough investigations to an evidential standard where required. GHT Global has delivered major investigative support to international companies and has worked with some of London’s leading law firms to support their clients resolve highly sensitive and controversial cases. At the heart of everything we do are our own professional standards where we ensure absolute discretion and adherence to the law, as well as accepted international standards of investigative practice and ethics.


Crisis Management

With a combined experience within the company of many decades of regularly responding to and managing crisis situations, GHT Global is able to work with clients to ensure strategies, policies and procedures are fit for purpose in dealing with potential crisis events and situations. We are able to coach and train key decision makers and deploy unique tools to discreetly identify gaps in capability and test preparedness and overall capability.


Advanced Driving

Students are taught the Safe Method of Car Control as taught by the Metropolitan Police Driving School.  This is a pre requisite to the surveillance phase as it ensures all students are able to drive safely at speed, on the public highway and are not a danger to themselves or others.


Photography

Students will be taught all the basics of photography before moving onto applying these skills as a surveillance skill. Photographing through cover, at high speed or in very low light will all be required to ensure the student is an asset to the surveillance team.


Surveillance

GHT Global have been delivering hostile environment surveillance training to Special Operations units since 2013.  The course has been tailored and evolved to their specific needs and has greatly enhanced their operational capability.

The surveillance course will take a student with no prior knowledge and turn them into a surveillance operator. They will have the ability to work as an individual or as a member of a team on foot or mobile, in a homeland security role or in an unfamiliar hostile environment.

All of our instructors are former UKSF operators with years of experience in operations within this field, including in Northern Ireland, Afghanistan, Iraq and homeland UK.  These instructors have manufactured and mentored surveillance teams in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.


Expeditionary Surveillance

Students will be taught the necessary skills to effectively move into a potentially unknown area in their own country or abroad, with little time to plan and orientate before deploying, or to follow a subject into an unknown area and have to learn the ground knowledge on the task. This is difficult for team members, but far harder for the Team Leader who must collate all intelligence and disseminate appropriately.


Technical Surveillance

Technical Surveillance is an aid to any surveillance team and the training can be tailored to enhance any operational shortfall.  There are a number of technical surveillance aspects to be covered, including vehicle or asset tracking, locating and monitoring,  Covert video and audio installation, both internal and external and Triggers and queuing devices. Any or all of these subjects can greatly enhance a surveillance team’s capability if utilised covertly and effectively.


Technical Surveillance Equipment Advice

GHT Global employees have years of experience in deploying, testing and purchasing various technical surveillance equipment.  We understand the pitfalls in the contract and tender process and the effect of buying the wrong equipment.  GHT involvement in this process can help ensure the right equipment is purchased giving the necessary tactical effect.


Covert Cellular Relocation

This technique is being used routinely for intelligence gathering and as a start point for a surveillance serial.  A number of civilian companies have developed equipment for this purpose, but the ability to stealthily deploy these tools and then covertly move into a surveillance serial is the key to greater operational success.


Covert Technical Relocation

All members of a small team that can be placed into a hostile environment with only their own mutual support need to be able to covertly relocate a lost operator. This gives the small team an advantage if a quick response to retake the initiative is required. When a team is competent in lost operator drills the transition into offensive technical relocation is very simple. Any tracking device can be used to train with so even if you don’t own a particular capability, the covert find of an individual in a hostile environment needs to be taken on by SF surveillance trained personnel.  GHT Global have extensive experience in these Standard Operating Procedures and we suggest every SF operator is fully trained in these capabilities


Team Leader (TL) Course

This course is aimed at the surveillance Team Leaders, who will be taught how to plan and brief their team in an Ops room, before leading the team on the ground in further challenging scenarios. Students will also learn how to utilise any additional assets at their disposal (for example Air or Technical assets), the running of the surveillance log, the team debrief and finally how to effectively communicate all intelligence gained back up the chain of command.


Advanced Target Reconnaissance (ATR)

GHT Global have been delivering Advanced Target Reconnaissance training to Special Operations units for a number of years.  The course has been tailored and evolved to their specific operational needs and has greatly enhanced their operational capability.

These courses are run in the rural and urban environment. They will teach the students how to plan, conduct and report on a reconnaissance mission, as well as how to enter onto the subject’s property and gather actionable intelligence covertly, whilst leaving no sign of their presence.

All of our instructors are former UKSF operators with years of operations in this field in Northern Ireland, Afghanistan, Iraq and homeland UK.

Exercise Scenario’s and Role Players

GHT Global can provide an in country or out of area exercise scenario in the UK, North America or mainland Europe. This will enable units to train and test all of the courses taught above, as well as the Surveillance and ATR courses taught previously.  GHT can provide the local administration, Enemy role players as well as mentors and augmenting exercising teams as required.


Operational Mentoring

GHT Global would always look into mentoring or augmenting into a previously trained team, in order to help pass on the considerable experience of our instructors.  Each area or operational deployment would be assessed in its viability but using GHT employees in planning, mentoring or technical placement roles could add great effect to your unit.
