Some Counterintelligence Methods
Pp. 43-109 (67)
Even though the greater part of intelligence has moved into virtual space,
this is not the case with counterintelligence: its essential, core part still remains moored
in the real world. Modern technology cannot replace people, especially not in
counterintelligence, which is why fundamental counterintelligence methods are rooted
in people and human activity. Today's counterintelligence methods and methodics are
similar and even identical to those from the past, except that they have adapted to
technological advances and societal changes; the methodology of counterintelligence,
however, remains unchanged. Some fundamental counterintelligence methods are
examined, which have not significantly changed through history—we are referring to
the use of double combination and the process of handling double agents, moles,
defectors, covert surveillance of people, things, and facilities, denial, deception,
counterintelligence protection, counter-surveillance, counter-denial, and counterdeception.
