Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (bug sweeping).
Technical Surveillance Surveys are seen as the first line of defence in National, Business and security operations. Most sensitive departments have a Technical Countermeasures Team (sweep team) on contract to clear main offices and other locations where sensitive negotiations will take place. In these days of high-speed technology development, the incidences of information theft is becoming more prevalent and to those who wish to break the law, Information Brokering is Big Business. As the tools of the trade have become more readily available, so too have the professionals with the knowledge and practical experience to use them. It is also not unknown for certain governments to assist their own nations’ commerce by indulging in, or tacitly supporting industrial espionage.
Security Surveys and Risk Assessments
In the current Global climate, Security Surveys, Procedures and Threat Assessments are essential at all main offices and headquarters. This falls neatly into Cougar Internationals area of expertise. We have in the past included this service as part of our TSCM tasking as an added extra. This we feel sets us apart from regular TSCM (sweep) teams.
We think that a genuine and thorough TSCM Survey is not just a matter of confirming that there are no illicit listening devices there, but more a matter of being able to say that “there are no devices here, but if someone wanted to deploy one, this is how it could be done!”
