While terrorist attacks may appear sudden, the reality is quite different. Terrorists meticulously assess various factors before selecting their targets and planning their attacks. In this course, our goal is to provide you with a distinct perspective on the surveillance activities employed by terrorists and criminals when identifying potential targets.
