How to detect physical surveillance with Frank Smyth
GJS CEO Frank Smyth discusses surveillance risks facing journalists with the Greek nonprofit organization iMEdD
The course sessions, instructors, and simulations were informative, practical, and gave me a much greater sense of confidence in my travels. The GJS team has an incredible wealth of experience and knowledge; the instructors’ anecdotes made each session impactful and memorable, and the actors made the simulations feel realistic. This was an outstanding course and I would highly recommend the GJS HEFAT training to anyone traveling to high-risk environments.
I learned a lot and ultimately feel very empowered to take another look at my personal safety as well as assist others. The trainers were wonderful – encouraging and supportive. The mix of theory and VERY practical scenarios was effective.
We lost three of our colleagues to suicide bomb attacks in Afghanistan on April 30, 2018. These days, a press badge doesn’t keep any of us safe. The only way to react is to prepare with prevention and avoidance techniques. This is the journalism training that GJS offers — from classroom to real life, practical scenarios. Thank you GJS for teaching me situational awareness and skills that will remain with me throughout my career and in everyday life.
