Learn how to Conduct TRV Assessments

Security professionals often need to look at their organization as a consultant would – reviewing the security systems threats, risks and vulnerabilities. This course will teach you how it’s done.

Chameleon trainers bring hands on expertise in delivering TRVAs to a wide variety of clients and industries.   The course provides tools and a methodology for how to identify threat, risk and vulnerabilities in an organization’s strategy, procedures, design, skill and awareness.

This course can be customized for a specific industry or organization. In the past, this course has been provided to judicial organizations that wanted to develop a better strategy for assessing court security across the country. We have also provided this course as a seminar that brought in a multi-disciplinary audience of security managers representing airports, central banks, critical infrastructure, hospitality and health care sectors.

Establishing Security Benchmarks

A key element in a security assessment is to provide the benchmark against which a security system is being evaluated. The benchmark is informed by regulators, customers, management but most importantly it is governed by the adversary. A key part of the Chameleon methodology presented in the course is how to evaluate a security system from an adversarial point of view while still addressing regulations, laws, customers, and operations as influencing factors.

Amotz Brandes / Trainer

Mr. Brandes began his career in an Israeli Defense Forces Special Forces Reconnaissance Unit.  During his military service he led recon and intelligence gathering teams on complex operations against terrorist organizations. After military service, he joined El AL Airlines where his role as profiler was to detect suspicious behaviors and contextual indicators among its passenger population, cargo and within the airline’s entire operational environment.  Amotz received special advanced training in explosives, concealment methods, cargo profiling, and surveillance detection.

In 2001, Mr. Brandes joined Chameleon Associates where post 9/11, interest in counterterrorism and aviation security spiked; to that end, he established their Training and Consulting department and developed programs in security engineering, Predictive Profiling, situational threat assessment and HUMINT and advanced security management.  Clients for these programs included private companies, law enforcement, government agencies, the military, not-for-profit organizations and security companies, all over the world.

Mr. Brandes has worked with dozens of companies and agencies to include the Central Bank of Netherlands, Vancouver International Airport, Amtrak Inspector General, Mall of America, Singapore Mass Rapid Transit, Bank of Aruba, Boeing, the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security, the L.A. Sheriff, European Commission, Australian Federal Police and many more.

He earned his B.A. in International Development Studies from the University of California at Los Angeles.  He is fluent in English and Hebrew.


This seminar was delivered to hundreds of law enforcement, security, military, corporate and non-profit organizations worldwide. Over the years, our trainers have received high praise from students, with average post-course survey scores never below 95%. The only consistent complaint we hear is that our students wished the training were longer because they want more. Here are some comments by our seminar participants:

“I found the information that was presented in the seminar to be both relevant and useful. The concepts were both new and exciting, and were in complete contrast to the many seminars that I have attended which put out the same old information that we have been hearing for many years. The Chameleon speakers are not only dynamic and interesting, but include many who have had real life experiences with the subject being taught. One comes away from a Chameleon seminar with a real, usable grasp of the subject and a feeling of time and money well spent.”
“The Predictive Profiling & Security Questioning Seminar is one of the most organized and well presented seminars I have attended in twenty five years of law enforcement. This well presented and thought provoking method surprises me that more governmental and civilian organization do not attend and place these measures in process. The civil liability requires us to perform all the techniques available to us to protect the public. As law enforcement takes on more of the “homeland security” role, combined with budget and staff limitations, this educational opportunity offers to be a financial must. This is a protection of our most valued asset, the public we defend.”  
“A breath of fresh air! Finally, a rational approach to security.”  
“The instructor was very knowledgeable. He used life experiences with the course content in presenting the course material which was great. I would be very interested in taking more courses to understand the mindset of terrorist and suicide bombers.”  
“Very eye-opening, so much knowledge gained in just two days. The teaching methods and examples used were very practical and beneficial for understanding the concepts/purpose of the seminar. Thank you!”  
“Subject matter expert (very” energetic, knowledgeable, and practical in disseminating this information. Learned a great deal after his training. I really appreciated his explanation of security rings vs. patches. I now also have a greater awareness and understanding of threats vs. risks.”  
“Predictive Profiling was an excellent course. Amotz supported his ideas and provided beneficial information which directly effects our jobs. Amotz maintained professionalism, justification, and problem/solution scenarios for the class to be open minded. I enjoyed both days and look forward to taking additional Chameleon courses. Thank you! “  
“The course content was very interesting and Amotz kept the class captivated. This has been some of the better training I have had on this subject. The ties to Israeli Security were very interesting and relevant. Best training I’ve ever received concerning security and look forward to receiving more.”  
“This course was by far the BEST training I have received since joining the government. Amotz knowledge, experience, and teaching methods were fantastic.”  
“I truly learned a lot more in these two days than I have in prior training. The instructor was outstanding. I would attend another course given by the same instructor”
