About BTAC Audio

These files are "you-are-there" recordings of actual BTAC meetings held in New York City. These are not lectures, in the traditional sense of the word. There is typically an informal presentation by the speaker, then a lively discussion among the two dozen (or so) senior security and intelligence executives that typically attend BTAC meetings.

These recordings are presented "as is" – very little post-processing has been applied, except for a few redactions in which the speaker stipulated that certain information stay "in the room." As a result, you will hear coughing and throat-clearing, air conditioner hum, papers rustling, and other ambient noises. Some discussants may be off-mike, and as a result the sound levels vary.

But if you listen attentively, beyond those distractions, to what to speakers are saying, you will hear some of the most advanced thinkers and "do-ers" in security and intelligence sharing their experiences, insights, and recommendations.

Each file is the property of BTAC, which reserves all rights of ownership and re-use. But you can listen, at no charge—more than once, if you want (thanks to our strategic partner, Evoca.)

BTAC encourages teachers and trainers to use these files for instructional purposes. This can be done by streaming the files to an amplified computer for group listening in the classroom, and/or by assigning the listening as individual homework.
