There is no quick fix or "special box" to detect all eavesdropping devices


We offer survey services (debugging & sweeping) to discover and locate illegal eavesdropping devices. Our surveys are conducted using meticulous procedures and equipment suitable for the level of the threat that needs to be addressed.

We survey the offices, boardrooms and homes of executives and other personnel where sensitive discussions are often held. Trained staff performs the surveys with professional equipment.

We regret that we do not accept any "domestic" assignments relating to divorce, marital problems, etc. We only accept assignments from the corporate and business sector as described under our company profile.

What is TSCM?

Technical Surveillance Countermeasures is a counterintelligence activity and refers to the countermeasures that are employed to detect or to defeat attempts to gain any information, whether privileged, confidential or of a very personal nature through the use of a variety of eavesdropping and other listening and transmitting devices.

Technical Surveillance Countermeasures services require a combination of skills and specialised knowledge about electronics, technical know how, counterintelligence, countermeasures, security, investigations, the law and many other disciplines, all in an attempt to prevent the gathering of information from a subject without the person's knowledge.
