So that you will not think that you are being ignored, i'm going to respond--but, unfortunately, i have to tell that, even though i'm a fairly-well-read native speaker of this language, i've never encountered that term.

I've never encountered the term either. Can you provide a context? I'm wondering whether it might be part of a larger phrase, like "take a stand over tactics."

Could "stand over" tactics mean direct attention?

If a mother employed stand over tactics she might stand in the doorway of her child's room until that room had been tidied to her satisfaction.
