Understanding TSCM Bug Sweeps

Houston and Nationwide TSCM Bug Sweeps and Electronic Surveillance Countermeasures.  Commonly known as bug-sweeping, TSCM, or electronic counter-eavesdropping.  These initiatives are defined by the services provided by trained personnel in order to identify the presence of technological surveillance devices.   Unidentified technical security weaknesses  may facilitate technical intrusion into a facility being. The goal is to detect potential secret surveillance devices (bugs), technical security weaknesses, and technical security hazards.    

Initionally, we will conduct a preliminary scan of your premises, identify threats, and determine technical security weaknesses. Once we perform a pre-sweep of your location, then we will conduct visual, physical, and electronic surveillance on your location.    

During the visual, we will locate any listening devices, helping to identify the source of a security violation. Our investigators will sweep offices, boardrooms, homes, and vehicles looking for hidden cameras, tapping phones, and electronic listening devices. Our teams will go inside your house and physically search it, using knowledge and expertise that we have about the places devices are commonly hidden. 

Our Houston TSCM technicians conducting Bug Sweeps and Electronic Surveillance Countermeasures, are trained by leading bug-detection device manufacturers and benefited by biannual recurrent training. We have years of experience conducting TSCM inspections. Our Houston based  technicians are well trained and are skilled in the detection of current surveillance technologies. The technicians have a wealth of training, experience working on-site, and know-how with appropriate equipment to help detect bugs at home, your phone, or in your business.

Should somebody place electronic surveillance equipment in your commercial or residential premises, you can be relatively certain they won’t waste their effort employing inferior technology. Accordingly, our team at Able Legal Investigations always has the most up-to-date countermeasures equipment at its disposal to conduct electronic bug sweeps and hidden camera detection operations.

Intellectual Property

There can be a number of reasons why someone would infiltrate your home, office or commercial premises to put electronic surveillance devices in place — all of them nefarious. Sometimes it’s a precursor to a kidnapping, blackmail, or extortion attempt.

More frequently however, it’s all about the valuable information that can be obtained through industrial espionage. The theft of intellectual property for example, has become a large and lucrative business. That’s why corporations especially can benefit from the peace of mind brought by our Electronic bug sweeps and TSCM investigations.

ServicesWhen to Consider an Electronic Bug Sweep

If you have any reason to seriously suspect that you’re under electronic surveillance, our TSCM investigations will uncover any devices hidden on your premises and either confirm your suspicions or allay them.

For corporations and larger enterprises, occasional electronic countermeasures investigations can be highly beneficial, even if no suspicion of surveillance exists. By conducting bug sweeps of sensitive areas (such as conference rooms) our investigators can make sure your corporate privacy and confidentiality are not compromised.
