|A "007" hotel - Couples Sans Souci hotel (Ocho Rios)|
However, one of the non-social media slides in that GCHQ deck was entitled "Royal Concierge"- "a SIGINT-driven hotel reservation tip-off service". While I would rather have found a Russian or Chinese intelligence service document that supported the need for corporate executives to pay attention to which hotel they stay in, it's safe to say that if GCHQ is doing this, all Foreign Intelligence Services (FIS) world-wide are doing it. Why? Because it's so damn effective against executives who will never sacrifice luxury for security. A 5 star hotel continues to be the world's most effective honey trap for both HUMINT and SIGINT operations.
