Jeff Cantor’s life reads like a Tom Clancy novel. Having spent time in an unforgiving trade as a mercenary operator, kidnap & ransom response specialist and tactical team leader in some of the most hostile environments on the planet, and with decades of real world experience as a global security expert and high risk environment tactical & security instructor, Cantor has gained his knowledge through the school of hard knocks and more than an occasional bullet.

Whether hot sweltering jungles executing a hostage rescue to helping corporate executives and governments deal with very real issues such as kidnapping, active shooter and terrorism preparedness, workplace violence and personal security, to protecting high value targets to helping our military and law enforcement personnel gain a greater tactical advantage through training and education, he has done it with decisive actionable leadership and a focused capacity for specifics.


The covert surveillance-training manual will guide you through the process of carrying out covert surveillance on any target. The manual takes you through mobile, foot and photographic surveillance concepts and tactics as well as surveillance detection methods and counter-surveillance trade craft. The manual is for professionals operating in the security field, private investigators, police officers, corporate security and military intelligence, Special Forces units, security guards and investigative journalists.

Dr. Cantor has been an International Security Consultant for over thirty years providing commercial, corporate and private individuals with a high level of professional services including private intelligence, hostage rescue, kidnap & ransom, private security details and maritime anti-piracy. He is a subject matter expert advisor to governments, agencies, companies and people in International security matters; surveillance and counter-surveillance, close quarters and extreme close quarters integrated combat, counter-terrorism and edged weapons.


Tactical planning requires real-time intelligence on your target as well as a clear method of passing information to on-site teams and tactical support groups in a manner, which is not discernible by the target or his associates. In any operation it is paramount that the mission is kept secret to protect the lives of the team executing the mission and to successfully accomplish the objectives.

In order to maintain the covert nature of the mission without divulging the actions we must adapt a system of communication that can change rapidly with the uncertain conditions surrounding covert ops… this is the essence of what this manual illustrates in Covert Reconnaissance.

Dr. Cantor’s background as a mercenary operator, kidnap & ransom response specialist and high risk environment tactical & security instructor come with decades of hard-earned experience in reconnaissance tradecraft. The concepts and techniques contained within the manual reflect in detail Cantor’s real world lessons learned.


Whether the boardroom or mean streets of today’s unforgiving corporate battlefield, strategic communication skills are what separate the leaders from the followers. Understanding the art of reading, influencing, predicting and engaging others is the absolute key to success when the stakes are high. Cantor’s no-nonsense approach to strategic communication empowerment is based on numerous extremely dangerous encounters with some very bad people while engaged as a mercenary operator and his experience working as an International Security consultant for world leaders, international business men and women and the jet set crowd around the globe.

A Very Real Threat in Today’s World

Kidnapping is a global epidemic that has penetrated every country. Sadly, it is a multi-billion dollar transnational enterprise. I wrote this new powerful e-book as a guide and information source for those companies, people and families so that they could gain a greater understanding of Kidnapping, how to prevent it and what to do if they should fall victim to it.

As businesses continue to expand operations internationally and people have a more global dimension, the protection of key personnel, employees, trade secrets and families must be more carefully analyzed. With Kidnapping and Extortion at epidemic proportions, today’s corporations and affluent citizens are at incredible risk.

To say that a kidnap has serious consequences is to make an understatement. For those affected and their families, it is extremely traumatic and emotionally draining. There are also financial consequences that include but are not limited to ransom negotiation fees, ransom payments, lawsuits, bad publicity, reputation damage and significant business interruption for corporations.
