Who is listening? Who is cheating? Who is gaining an unfair advantage by breaking the rules? Or breaking the law? Many legal investigations and corporate investigations require technical surveillance and countermeasures (TSCM) to ferret out wrongdoing or discover bugs, listening devices and other surveillance. Oftentimes legal and corporate organizations find they need to cover both ends of the surveillance spectrum to protect their proprietary secrets.
”A corporate investigation or government investigation can involve either launching a surveillance operation, undercover investigation, or providing comprehensive surveillance technology detection,” says Tim Wilcox, President of Indianapolis-based International Investigators, All In Investigations, Inc. “We have nearly 40 years of experience in the TSCM industry, and find that our expertise in both in placement and detection makes us doubly qualified for corporate investigations and legal investigations.”
International Investigators prides itself on an ability to understand the demands of organizations that either suspect surveillance activity within their walls, or require subjects or locations to actually be monitored through the latest surveillance technology and undercover operations.
“We’ve found that about a third of the bugs used in corporate surveillance are cellphone bugs; however, we’ve discovered surveillance technology in over 40 configurations in just about any piece of equipment imaginable: lamps, clocks, pencil sharpeners, fax machines…” adds Wilcox. “What’s so shocking is that ninety percent of the “commercially available” detection equipment is useless. Bug sweeps, bug placement, the art and science of surveillance in general—all of it requires experienced, technical know-how and a serious investment in advanced technology.”
