TSCM Specialist

Sound consulting from an Industry expert

As a TSCM specialist and privacy professional, who regularly conducts eavesdropping detection audits, technical surveillance countermeasures surveys, (debugging sweepsand local technical inspections, although these terms are somewhat interchangeable TSCM operations are designed to detect, defeat, and nullify clandestinely installed recording, listening or bugging devices, as well as identify concealed cameras (spycams). TSCM specialist protects companies against theft of their intellectual capital, strategy, and business secrets.  

This is achieved by the deployment of specialist equipment designed to intercept or identify radio frequency transmissions, detect electronic components inside items where there should be none, such as books ornaments or other office items. Additionally, a full physical inspection is undertaken to detect items which are either switched off, inert, (due to expired power supplies) as well as other technical threats within strategic locations under search. a technical surveillance countermeasures audit would be incomplete without both undertaking a full physical search and a detailed examination of the RF spectrum. 

As a TSCM specialist I am often asked what kind of bugging devices are most prevalent in Asia. although there are some geographical disparities, in Hong Kong it would be a GSM listening device which is normally concealed within either an electrical wall socket, power extension lead, or other item of electrical equipment; these are very quickly installed by those with legitimate access such as contractors or staff.  Concealed or hidden cameras (spycams) are also found throughout Asia obvious locations for these devices are within hotels. (Both meeting facilities and guest rooms) 

Newer eavesdropping threats include listening devices which connect to a Wi-Fi access points, Bluetooth low energy devices, as well as GPS tracking devices.
