Verbal or Written Communications are Not Always Private

Technical Surveillance Countermeasures, sometimes called TSCM Sweeps, debugging, wiretap detection or just plain old “sweeps”.  With the advent of cellphones, VOIP phones, computer Skype, FaceTime, go-to-meeting and the many other ways of communication, illegal eavesdropping has become easily available to those who are curious.  Google the internet for mobile phone bugging and you will find many “offshore” providers that sell highly sophisticated cell phone spy software for usually less than a hundred bucks.  Carefully read the advertising material posted on these sites and you will find that they guarantee that the spy on cell software can’t be found.  They provide a detailed tutorial explaining how to remotely install phone spying software on a target phone.  Electronic eavesdropping is illegal in the United States and [...]
