Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM)
Technical surveillance countermeasures (TSCM) is a term created by the United States government that describes the action of sweeping for devices that may be spying on you. Originally, TSCM were aimed at sweeping rooms just for listening devices.
Counter-surveillance refers to measures undertaken to prevent surveillance, including covert surveillance. Countersurveillance may include electronic methods such as technical surveillance counter-measures, the process of detecting surveillance devices, including covert listening devices, visual surveillance devices as well as countersurveillance software to thwart unwanted cybercrime, including accessing computing and mobile devices for various nefarious reasons (e.g. theft of financial, personal or corporate data). More often than not, counter-surveillance will employ a set of actions (countermeasures) that, when followed, reduce the risk of surveillance.
Countersurveillance is different from sousveillance (inverse surveillance), as the latter does not necessarily aim to prevent or reduce surveillance.
Is your team been monitored or do you suspect covert surveillance equipment is installed. If someone or an agency considers you or your team a target or your movements it is important enough to target your position, you need to have your offices and vehicle checked for hidden devices.
Modern surveillance equipment can be placed in an office or car without the need to enter the vehicle or have the keys, foreign spy agencies and bad actors have found various ways to accomplish this.
In today’s business society surveillance equipment is not uncommon, there are lots of examples of advanced surveillance equipment installed into offices or vehicles for monitoring use, most were not detected by government sweeping tools.
Foreign governments, competing corporations, and private information gatherers frequently resort to the use of electronic surveillance devices to gain a competitive advantage in the market place. Others may use it to obtain compromising information that can be employed for a variety of uses ranging from simple embarrassment to blackmail.
Even the most vigilant security measures cannot rule out all incidents of illegal activity, clandestine or covert efforts, and devices that can compromise sensitive information, privacy, and confidentiality.
Our Digital TCSM team can conduct sweeping your vehicle from 5Mhz to 9ghz using the latest technology. We will find anything even if it sleeps or operates on specific times.
We only provide this service to corporate agencies.
Our sensor based TSCM module allows for monitoring in more locations with networking capabilities purpose built for remote and in-place spectrum monitoring. We can detect in real time new devices and prevent in real time listening equipment and active surveillance.
The TSCM tool set we deploy features a sweep rate of 28 GHz/s at 10 kHz RBW and 40 MHz IBW and advanced triggering capabilities, we can capture short duration or faint signals of interest with a higher probability. By conduct deeper analysis with patented software-defined spectrum analysis technology which enables wide bandwidths, deep dynamic range, and 9 kHz – 27 GHz frequency range.
WiFi Networks, Find Flaws, Detect Rogue Devices and Secure Networks.
Digitpol Cyber Crime Team specialise in wireless network analysis, we offer RF site surveying, WiFi analysis, Secured wireless network installation and Wi-Fi security services for private and public Wi-Fi hotspot networks.
We perform Surveys to record all Wi-Fi networks on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz spectrum to determine what devices are on your network and if any rogue devices are present. We conduct pen testing on your network via Wi-Fi. We don’t need to access your offices to perform the tests.
Should I Be Concerned who’s on my WiFi?
Are you concerned about information loss or business secrets being targeted over WiFI? A small amount of information could be worth millions to the right people or could damage important negotiations. Loss of confidential information such as executive schedules could even put lives in danger. Traditional physical security and cyber security are important, but there are many gaps they leave unprotected. To ensure all is in order, a WiFi security sweep with a detailed report would provide an insight to any, technical surveillance issues.
Dedicated to TSCM, Technical Surveillance Countermeasures.
Providing RF and signal analysis is a key part of our daily business. We maintain the highest standards in both technology and training which is necessary to combat today’s threats. We deploy a mobile forensic unit that is equipped with all RF detection and analysis tools.
Our technicians have extensive experience in multiple areas of RF security and wireless technology. We are certified in TCM and Forensic analysis of Wireless Networks.
The most complex sweep is on a vehicle, due to the complex of vehicles wiring harness known as a CAN BUS network, the sweep includes CAN BUS network traffic, voltage across the networks, amp load at rest, FLIR and an inspection of the entire vehicle, interior, exterior and undercarriage. To conduct a full TSCM on a vehicle, the vehicle needs to be kept in a faraday tent for 48h.
