Electronic Bugs And Listening Devices, Are They Tracking You?

Technical Sweep Countermeasures (TSCM).  We have many Clients who call for a TSCM service to ensure their home or office are safe to discuss private conversations.  A TSCM sweep is conducted to determine if there are any covert (not openly acknowledge or displayed) audio or video devices within a home or business. Requesting a listening device detection or an electronic bug detection can expose various amounts of spyware that is concealed within normal products. For example, these types of devices could be a charger for a cellphone or computer with the capability to power your technology and spy on you at the same time, smoke detectors that will function properly, and listening devices that can be installed into products you welcome into your home [...]

Divorce Property Division, Are You Sure You’re Getting Your Half of The Assets?

There have been many songs written about “Breakups” and “Divorces” where one party is emotionally more affected than the other.  It doesn’t matter if love is lost, someone has an extra marital affair or life choices is the cause, one party may either be surprised by the decision or has seen it coming for a while.  When love is lost, the divorce may be an easy process, but if one party has wronged the other, there may be ramifications for the party who made the decision to quit the marriage. Like the old saying goes:  Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.1

Haunted – Why a GP Hired Us to Recon Her Own Office

Cassie owned and operated a successful general practice in a nearby town. Her office staff was small with only a handful of long-term employees operating out of a former residential house in the historic part of town. Cassie’s practice had been at this location for 12 years and there had never been any out-of-the-ordinary activities, unless you count the patients’ occasional unusual medical conditions.

However, a few months ago, Cassie’s receptionist and another staff member starting making jokes about the office being haunted. They would complain that when they set objects down, such as a stapler or even personal objects like lip gloss, the item would be gone when they went back to use it later. The missing object would show back up again in [...]
