Bug Sweep ServicesWhat can we do if our office is bugged?
Bug sweep services or to give its American terminology name technical surveillance countermeasures (TSCM) in the United Kingdom its known as a local technical inspection or debugging sweep. Its our core service not an add on or secondary service as offered by due diligence specialists, management consultancies, private investigators, or physical security practitioners, although the later can advise on your office perimeter security.
Generally, you have the following options if a covert eavesdropping device is found:
Photograph, document and remove. And then start searching for other electronic bugging devices that were likely installed at the same time, sometimes we identify a cheap disposable bugging device that our adversary has installed for us to easily find. The other covert camera or surveillance devices are better concealed and much more difficult to find unless you are operating with the very latest bug detection equipment. As we are.
Photograph, document, leave in place? If what is found is an RF bug or GSM audio bugging device they is a option to disable or interfere with the bug to make it less effective or even totally inoperable. Installing a concealed camera to monitor the area to see if the bug repair team is called in to fix it, and thereby gaining video evidence of the perpetrator(s). You still need to sweep for other bugging devices in this situation.
Photograph, document, leave in place? And then build a script to feed the bugging device false corporate information, a well devised script can make the installers of the illegal eavesdropping devices react to the false information thereby unmasking their identities. Eventually, the bugging devices should be removed and regular debugging sweeps at irregular intervals should be scheduled.
