About Us

The goal of the security / emergency assessment is to evaluate the security technologies, policies and procedures, emergency response plans, training and awareness, landscaping, lighting, etc. As a part of the assessment, interviews should be conducted with faculty, administrators, professors, teachers, employees, students, area business owners, law enforcement, fire department leaders, emergency management agencies, and area security professionals.

Known by many as "bug sweeping" or "debugging", Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) is more appropriately defined as techniques to detect, neutralize, and/or exploit a wide variety of hostile and foreign penetration technologies that can be used to obtain unauthorized access to classified, sensitive and/or proprietary information.

Most Protection Specialists understand that the cornerstone of an effective Executive Protection Program is the Security Assessment (AKA – The Advance).

Having not exercised our security plan for many years, there was great hesitation from our organization as we started this process. I can tell you that the professional service that we received from Armada, in particular from Lee Foster was the success of our mission. 

Mr.Foster was able to custom tailor a scenario that challenged our organization without disrupting our day to day operations, and provided us with solid feedback to improve upon as we look ahead. 

We will certainly use Armada again in the future, and I would highly recommend any initiative that Lee Foster is involved in.

Hamilton County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)

With the Hamilton County Local Emergency Planning Committee, I have had the privilege of working with Mandy on the 2012 Functional Exercise, involving the Emergency Operations Center.  This exercise was extremely complex, as it dovetailed into the larger multi-operational period Functional Exercise involving the other county Emergency Operation Centers within my region and the State Emergency Operations Center.  She did a masterful job of applying the ideas from the design team into exercise products.  She and her team were of great assistance during the implementation of the exercise as well.  I am looking forward to working with Mandy and her team in the future.
