We worked with an attorney who was convinced that his office, phone, or both were bugged. He was in the middle of a case and the “other side” seemed to know every position, jab and parry he had planned and was prepared to counter him in the courtroom. It was just too much of a coincidence. He was convinced there was some sort of phone tapping or covert surveillance going on in his office.
He tried to do some of his own bug detection—looking under his desk, around the windows, pictures and door frames for something, but he found nothing.
So he called us. We did a bug sweep and lo, and behold, he was correct. Inside the surge protector power strip at his feet we found a spy listening device – a bug.
We informed him about it and even showed it to him. Most clients want it OUT – NOW! But not him. Besides just eliminating the threat in his office, he knew there would be no real repercussions for the infraction – although it is highly illegal. He decided he wanted to use it.
He took measures to protect his client and the case from exposure in his office by moving his work on the case to another location. But then he began feeding the opposition false information knowing they would use it to prepare a countermeasure in court.
In the end, he used their own spy listening devices against them – and beat them in court, where it really counted.
Bug sweeps and detection has a fancy label: Technical Surveillance Countermeasures, or TSCM for short. It includes more than just bug sweeps. It can include cell and land-line phone tapping, covert audio or video surveillance and computer surveillance.
We come with the latest state-of-the-art counter surveillance equipment designed to expose every bit of spy and bug equipment that has been planted.
We want your surge protectors to do their job protecting your equipment—not exposing your confidential corporate strategies and secrets.
