A concentrated physical security training for employees and executives to learn hands-on how to protect and defend sensitive company data and hardware from corporate espionage attacks, as well as avoid personal data security failures

Corporate espionage prevention and defense training is essential for any company or individual with valuable information, even if their hardware never leaves the building – but especially if employees travel or work remotely. Rift’s Employee Intensive is aimed at securing the hardware used by (and belonging to) company employees, executives, independent contractors, journalists, legal professionals and more.

Participants are trained to detect when malicious parties have tampered with a computer, cell phone or other device, and absorb crucial protocols to follow when their security has been breached.

This comprehensive training also provides yet-unseen training and techniques, of particular interest to those already versed in tamper detection and forensics.

In two comprehensive, six-hour training days:

  • Learn and sharpen behavioral protocols for travel preparation, and during travel
  • Refine ability to quickly, confidently determine when a device has been compromised
  • Become fluent in hardware and software techniques to mitigate threats
  • Learn how devices and their protections are compromised, and how to inspect for tampering
  • Get detailed instruction on what to do when tampering is discovered
  • Methods for company employees to better understand how to conduct themselves according to company policy – even if tampering is only suspected

Our trainers are the most sought-after in the world of tamper evidence and physical (hardware) security.

In this hands-on environment, Rift trainers ensure that no participant leaves without the confidence and understanding to protect their devices and effectively cope with compromise.

Participants are taught specific situational awareness skills, and to swiftly recognize the circumstances and methods in which devices can be compromised. Rift shows what real attacks look like, guiding students through before and after examples. Employees finish the course knowing how to safely conduct themselves and protect their belongings, and how to evaluate and inspect their belongings for evidence of attempted tampering in real-life situations.

The Two-Day Intensive is comprised of 6 hours each day, over two consecutive days. Standard bookings are from 5 to 25 students, with 1-3 instructors (as suitable for class size).

Rift conducts its Employee Intensive either onsite, or in an equipped offsite facility. The Intensive requires a location that can receive packages, and allows use of chemicals (solvents), heat, open flame, sharp objects, and other items used during the training. Rift Recon provides all necessary equipment.

Negotiated fees will reflect standard travel costs, to be included in the Employee Physical Security Intensive agreement.
