A comprehensive handbook on the elements required for effective counterintelligence operations in national security, military, law enforcement and the corporate spheres. The book’s chapters cover topics such as the fundamentals of counterintelligence, the physical, personnel, information, and communications security components of counterintelligence, as well as offensive counterintelligence in the form of detection, deception, and neutralization. Numerous diagrams and tables serve to amplify and operationalize the discussion. The book will also be highly useful for counterterrorism agencies· concerned about uncovering the “insider threat” posed by homegrown extremists.
