There are many ways to breach buildings, whether you are dealing in social engineering or explosives. These include Explosive breaching (Exothermic breaching), and Ballistic breaching.
Explosive breaching can be used to make an entry port for almost any wall. These techniques can be used for breaking down fortified strongholds or distracting hostage takers. The technology is becoming more sophisticated and criminals are becoming more adept at barricading their targets.
Tactical explosive breaking is a powerful tool that allows for the fastest entry into a fortified target. It reduces the time required to break into a structure and minimizes the threat to operators.
It’s important to have a comprehensive policy regarding explosive breaching. It should cover legal issues, training, safety, and other matters. It should also limit the number of people who can be involved in the process.
A good policy should limit the number of EOD personnel to those that have the proper training and certifications. It should also restrict the types of equipment that are used. The NTOA has created a model policy called “Tactical Explosive Entry”. It is available in members-only File Sharing section on the NTOA site.
Another important policy is to document all training and activity
It should include a log detailing the activities, the equipment used, and the legal implications. This will allow for the department’s follow-up on training and activities.
It is important to consider explosive breaching when used in conjunction with other techniques. Although tactical explosive breaching cannot replace manual breaching, it can be a useful tool in your toolbox.
Also, explosive breaching can be dangerous and uncomfortable. It should only be used when mechanical breaching techniques fail or are dangerous.
Training with local teams is also a good policy. This will ensure that your skills and knowledge are up-to-date in explosive breaching.
49 percent did not have an explosive breaches policy in 2009 This is why it is so important that all agencies think about this issue, especially if explosive breaching is a part of their operations.
The best policy should include a basic explosive breaching course, as well as training on the most effective techniques. This course will cover the theory, practical aspects, safety considerations, and charge calculation of explosive breaching.
No matter the circumstances, there are many methods of breaking into structures. It’s important that you are familiar with them all, as the specific circumstances may dictate which method is best for your situation.
Ballistic breaching aims to open a closed door. This can be done using a variety tools, such as a shotgun or ram. Ballistic breaching is used in many military operations on urban terrain as well as law enforcement teams.
The US Army’s urban war doctrine requires that breaching should be done using the muzzle of an explosive projectile weapon in contact to a door. This technique is used to avoid injuring people inside the structure.
Another option is to fire a standard shot
However, this can be an extremely dangerous technique. Standard rounds have a high risk of ricocheting. Use a shotgun, or a muzzle attachment to avoid ricocheting.
A 120mm cannon with a HEAT round is capable of breaching most obstacles. A satchel charge can also be used to break down reinforced concrete bunkers. These charges contain 20-pounds (9 kg) C-4.
Another method is shooting the key hole area of a doors. This is the most efficient method. This method can also be dangerous. It’s why it’s important that you train with local teams.
Another method is to use a strip-shaped charge to break through doors. This type of plastic explosive can penetrate a door. This method can be slower than explosive breaking.
Another breaching technique is to use chemical agents. This is often done by a tactical team as they break into an objective. The use of chemical agents is often effective at distracting the hostage taker.
Another method for breaking through steel is to do so. This method is very time-consuming, but it is one of the most efficient. It is not as loud, however, as explosive breaching.
The ballistic breaching course will teach you the techniques you need to effectively implement ballistic breaching capabilities into a variety of tactical situations. You will also be able to create procedures and programs for your unit or department.
An exothermic torch can also be used to cut steel bars, highway guardrails and concrete lined pipes using a pyrotechnic ignition. It can be ignited using a 12-volt lithium battery. It can burn at a temperature of 10,000 F. The torch can also work underwater or above water.
An exothermic torch allows you to cut through concrete-lined pipes and steel bars. It also cuts through common metals, such as mild steel, up to three inches in thickness. The PC/MICROM15A thermal breaching torch is the smallest on the market. It is also useful to have a backpack that can be carried around.
You might also want to look at an exothermic cutter rod. Although it’s not the most advanced tool, it can be used to quickly remove concrete blocks, heavy bars, and steel grating. Exothermic cutting can also be a good idea for a fire recovery situation. It allows trained operators, who are skilled in metal cutting, to pierce, gouge, or cut through them.
The cost of a thermal cutting system can run from $2500 to $4500. It is portable and lightweight. It is built around a backpack that can be carried by a group of people. A 12-volt battery provides the power and an oxygen-powered copper-coated cutting rod ignites the flame. A complete system can be completed by a team of four to five breaches.
Exothermic cutting can also be used by the military and police
Cutting is useful in rescue and entry operations, demolition, and the removal of hydraulic pins. It is a good idea in a fire recovery scenario, but it does not have a lot of applications in the residential realm. It has its limitations, such as the need for a large fuel gas charge and a high charge. If the fire is not contained it can pose a deadly hazard to a tactical unit.
A properly-formulated tactical plan should include an accurate survey of the resources and resources necessary to complete the task. It must also make the most of the resources that are available. A thorough and comprehensive institutional survey is the best way to achieve this.
Social engineering is a multi-fronted battle. It starts with a review and analysis of your company’s policies, procedures, and countermeasures. It can also include security awareness training so that employees can identify and address unsolicited messages.
Cybercriminals use social engineering to exploit people’s weak social skills and emotions. The goal is for the victim to give information and then take action. It is used frequently to steal money from targeted victims.
It is also used to access private information. A successful attack can give hackers access to multiple networks. It can also be used for installing malware on users’ computer.
Social engineering attacks can occur online, over a number of months, or in one email. To obtain sensitive information, the attacker will often create an online relationship to gain access to the victim.
The attacker could ask for sensitive information, such as the password of the target. The attacker can collect password information or even gain access to a computer by impersonating a technical support specialist. It could also attempt to contact the target personally.
Another popular social engineering tactic is the thumb-drive drops
This is a targeted attack which takes advantage technology’s speed and users’ willingness to share. This can be a malicious virus or Trojan that is spread on a USB stick.
In the case RSA breach 2011, the hacker sent two phishing messages over two days to a few small groups RSA employees. The emails contained an Excel file attachment with malicious code. The attacker never provided any details about the information that was stolen.
A phishing attack uses social engineering to take advantage of people’s curiosity. The attacker tries to gain a large number of usernames and passwords. Often, the attacker will “shoulder-surf” users using their tablets and laptops.
A phishing attack is also a successful social engineering attack because it exploits people’s emotions. The attacker will pretend to be a boss or legitimate organization and offer something in return for the target’s help.
