Transcript of Espionage
Well, the truth is that spying isn't all glamorous like in those spy movies. If you want to be those types of spies then you should become an actor.
Now welcome to the REAL
world of spying. Who Gets To Be Called A 'Spy'? A spy is anyone who spies, gathers secret information, working for government or not. Anyone that works in the intelligence community is known as an intelligence officer. (I.O. for short) Most intelligence officers are analysts. They analyze 'raw' information and turn then into useful information. The I.O.s that work around the world are case officers. They find intelligence and also recruit agents. •Natural resources: food, energy and materials.
The agents are usually found among people who manage these resources.
•Strategic economic strengths: production, research, manufacture and construction.
The agents recruited are from the science and technology academic.
•Military capability intelligence: offensive, defensive, maneuver, naval, air, space
The agents are trained by military and espionage education.
Operations targeting opponent's intelligence service themselves, such as tapping into communications and recruiting defectors or moles. Some Areas Of Espionage The most important element of a longterm spying operation is the use of a cover and the creation of a legend. A cover is a secret identity, and a legend is the background story and documents that support the cover.
For example, a Canadian agent whose cover identity is a German banker would need to speak German and know a great deal about German financial laws. To make the cover seem more realistic, the legend must be very detailed. The agent will have a fake 'history' that he must memorize like where did he go to school, where was he born, who is his wife, what are his hobbies and if the legend states that the agent enjoys birdwatching, he'd may have a pair of binoculars, bird seeds and a bird guide in his house to prove it.
Once the spy establishes a cover, he might spend years doing his job and establishing trust. Eventually, the spy will try to gain promotions or transfers to a position with access to useful information, or make friends with someone with access to the information. Spy Methods Why Do People Want to Become Spies? Well, this can be explained with the acronym MICE. M
go What is Espionage? Espionage is the act of spying, or to gather information without permission of the owners.
The word 'espionage' comes from the French word 'espionner' which means 'to spy' and 'Spy' comes from the Old French word 'espie' which was shortened to 'spy'. Who Spies? Government, business groups, political groups, individuals, and private espionage groups are all example of people that spied. Where/ When did Spying Start? Spying has been with us since the earliest days of history. The oldest battle of which there is a detailed record, the Battle of Kadesh in 1274 BCE involved spies. There are spies in the Bible and in Homer’s Illiad. Where do they spy? •Military
•Computation Types of Espionage WAR Spying can also be used in war, to find battle plans and new weapons. Spying exists almost everywhere in the world as long as there is war and any other threats. The reason why is that war and other threats like terrorists are the main cause of spying. An intelligence officer tries to get information that will:
protect a country from threats
figure out what other countries' spies are doing against a country. Inquiry Question: How Can We Stop Spying? You can't My answer is.... Because like I said in one of the slides before, war and terrorism is the main cause of spying. Also, they spy without war anyway, just in case. I don't think we can stop war either because it is all in human nature. (like a wise, old man once said) Unless you stop war or terrorism Product Here is my product. You will make your own cover legend as a spy. Be sure not to use your real information! Conclusion I hope you enjoyed my presentation and learned a lot about spying. THE END TROLL Interview I interviewed a former CIA analysist, Mark Stout. He now works at the ISM. Here are three of his answers: What was considered the ‘safest’ job as a spy?
Well, most jobs that aren’t in war zones are pretty safe, though if you are a case officer or an operations officer in the field you sometimes run the risk of getting arrested by the local security service. However, most American spies have “diplomatic immunity” which means they can’t be prosecuted by foreign governments for breaking local law. Under international law, the worst that you can do to someone with diplomatic immunity is throw them out of the country.
What are the rules and restrictions of becoming a spy?
When you apply for a job with a US intelligence agency, they will do a very intensive investigation of your background. They will interview you about your life and your personal habits and they will talk to many people who have known you back at least to your 18th birthday. They want to see if you are trust-worthy and law abiding and if you are mentally stable. They pay special attention to drug use, particularly drug use after the age of 18.
Can I have some top secret files?
NO! VIDEO These following videos are recruitment videos by the CSIS, the Canadian spy agency. QUESTION TIME ??? ??? From watching those videos which spy job would you prefer? An IT, a surveillance, a collector or a screening officer?
