What is Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM)?
Technical Surveillance Counter Measures is a term which describes the process of conducting a counter-surveillance ‘bug sweep’. These ‘sweeps’ aim to detect the presence of hidden illicit eavesdropping devices such as; wireless cameras, listening devices, GPS trackers and more.
TSCM and Corporate Espionage
Financially prosperous and forward thinking companies often seek out the service of TSCM professionals. This is done as a principal means of reducing the organisations vulnerability to corporate espionage and protecting intellectual property.
TSCM and Private Life
Is your current or former partner spying on you? Relationships, whether it be romantic, friendly or financial, do not always have a pleasant ending. TSCM Inspectors are often employed to inspect the homes and vehicles of individuals who suspect they are victims of unwanted surveillance and GPS tracking.
Who Does The Bugging?
Be it a disgruntled employee eavesdropping on their boss, to hostile organisations targeting their competitors, to a distrusting partner spying on their current/former spouse, the threat of eavesdropping to both companies and everyday people is very real.
Going After Google
For as long as there has been commerce, there has been espionage. The methods for spying on competitors have changed over time, but the desire to uncover a rival’s secrets has not.
In a January 2010 blog post, Google disclosed that a month prior they had detected a highly sophisticated surveillance attack originating from China that resulted in the theft of its intellectual property. The company stated that the evidence suggested a primary goal of the attackers was to access the Gmail accounts of Chinese human rights activists. Google said a wide range of companies were also targeted, including those in the finance, technology, media, and chemical industries. This is a big espionage program aimed at getting high-tech information and politically sensitive information.
