3. Communication (ESD)
Two terms dominate communications: ‘en clair’ (meaning clearly) and ‘en code’ (meaning securely). En clair enables the members of the team to communicate without misunderstandings through a variety of mediums. However, the bodyguard team does not want the details of ‘who’, ‘where’ and ‘when’ to fall into unauthorised hands – enabling the planting of a bomb, a sniper or close quarter attack, an ambush. Part of communications security is ECS (Electronic Counter Surveillance). This is the physical and electronic search for passive and active means of electronic surveillance (commonly known as ‘bugs’). It includes the electronic counter measures needed to defeat electronic surveillance. (Quotes from IBA notes of James G. Shortt writing for deeper inspection visit our professional courses)
