In today’s world, it doesn’t take a technical wiz or thousands of pounds for someone to tap into your phone conversations, track your car’s every move, or visually monitor and record your most private actions. Advanced surveillance equipment that existed only in James Bond movies a few years ago is now readily and inexpensively obtainable by all.
It is a fact that almost any criminal act, from purse-snatching to terrorist bombing, involves some degree of pre-operational surveillance. The purse-snatcher may only be ‘casing’ the situation for a couple of minutes, whilst the terrorist may be covertly observing over several weeks or months.
That said, it is another truism that whilst surveillance is taking place, the perpetrators of the planned criminal activity are themselves exposed and vulnerable to detection. This is where Counter Surveillance (CS) helps to detect and mitigate the impact of planned crime or terrorism.
Hopefully, you will not require the services of Counter Terrorism. However, CS may prove vital in certain commercial or sensitive matters – wherever it is important to ensure the integrity of information being exchanged.
Often referred to as ‘debugging’, we offer a full physical search and electronic sweep of individual rooms by experienced operatives. If necessary, this may extend to other areas such as telecommunication systems, cars and the home.
Eavesdropping is becoming the ‘new route’ to obtaining corporate advantage. Consequently, many companies will be the subject of eavesdropping during sensitive or strategic negotiations. Therefore, electronic counter surveillance measures (debugging) should be considered as an essential routine procedure.
As always we will provide you with a detailed report of our findings and the decision as to what to do with any devices we discover will be something we discuss with you, our client.
If you are concerned about the integrity of your information or actions, then call us from a ‘safe phone’ (not your usual mobile) and we will be pleased to discuss options with you.
