Take a moment right now, and ask yourself these series of questions:

1. Do you know the first names of your outside cleaning staff? How about even the name of the company?

2.  Do you have a key card access system in your company? If you do, who monitors the program?

3. Do you screen visitors and contractors?

4. Do you have your meetings in a unsecured conference room?

5. Do you have a security service or CCTV cameras?

If you answer no, to any of these questions, you company is susceptible to eavesdropping devices. 

Many of our clients schedule electronic sweep services on a periodic basis to ensure a higher level of protection. Client relationships are maintained on a confidential basis and sensitive information is handled discreetly. Electronic Eavesdropping Countermeasures (De-Bugging) can be defined as a combination of searches, both electronic and physical, which are intended to provide a business, person or organization some reasonable assurance of privacy against electronic surveillance devices (Bugs). The search or "Sweep" is conducted by utilizing sophisticated equipment and techniques, in conjunction with a meticulous physical inspection.
