Counter Surveillance

Counter surveillance or technical surveillance counter-measures (TSCM), refers to measures undertaken to prevent surveillance, including covert surveillance. Counter surveillance may include electronic methods such as bug sweeping, the process of detecting surveillance devices, including covert listening devices, visual surveillance devices as well as counter surveillance software to thwart unwanted attempts by cyber crooks to access computing and mobile devices for various nefarious reasons (e.g. theft of financial, personal or corporate data) . More often than not, counter surveillance will employ a set of actions (countermeasures) that, when followed, reduce the risk of surveillance. Our agents are equipped with the latest, state of the art devices to conduct counter surveillance in the areas of:

  • Electronic Countermeasures - Most bugs emit some form of electromagnetic radiation, usually radio waves. The standard counter-measure for bugs is therefore to "sweep" for them with a receiver, looking for the radio emissions with professional electronic equipment.
  • Software Countermeasures - Among Privacy-enhancing technologies, counter surveillance specifically addresses concerns of consumers, businesses and governments to protect their privacy on their computing devices (including smartphones, laptops, tablets and desktops).
