By Surveillance Today, Special for USDR
Surveillance Today goes public with an in-depth exposé of fraud in the Intelligence Systems Support industry: “spyware” vendors caught selling “air ware” and other products that do not work as claimed, even faking product demos to delude buyers.
Products covered in the analysis include malware, lawful intercept, mobile location, advanced analytics, military intelligence and pre-crime solutions – plus empty metal boxes sold by ISS vendors as “bomb detection” devices. Companies involved in the scandal are located in Dubai, Germany, Israel, Italy, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. The analysis is available in full to all visitors – today only, at www.surveillancetoday.com
Surveillance Today debuts at a time of heightened concern over terrorist attacks by ISIS, Boko Haram, al-Qaeda, the Taliban, the New IRA and other violent non-state actors. Independent sources cite 389 terrorist attacks worldwide in 20151. With more than 300 documented incidents in the current year-to-date including attacks in Brussels, Lahore and Baghdad, acts of terrorist violence are on track to triple during 20162. Such attacks can be preempted with the help of legitimate ISS solutions that reveal the plans, identities and extended networks of terrorist organizations.
Assisting in that mission, Surveillance Today meets the need for clear assessment of surveillance and evidence-gathering solutions – systems that are not addressed by conventional technology analyst organizations. Topics covered include but are not limited to:
- Artificial Intelligence and Pre-Crime
- Deep Packet Inspection and IP Flow Monitoring
- Deep Web Monitoring
- Encryption, Cryptography and Cryptanalysis
- Ethical Malware
- Hardware Accelerators – Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs)
- Lawful Intercept Mediation, Probe and Cloud Solutions
- Military Apps: CIDNE, DCGS, Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR), LIDAR
- Mobile Location – Active & Passive, Network and Wi/Fi, 2G, LTE and Future 5G
