Over the past 60 days, Martin Investigative Services has received a significantly higher amount of inquiries from corporations that want bug sweep / TCSM services. What really might grab you is that they are requesting sweeps of residential homes.
Traditionally about 80% of the bug sweep requests we receive come from executives in corporate America, and their places of work are usually corporations and other business entities – occasionally even government agencies.
Their objective? They want to make sure their workplace is free of being compromised by illegal audio/visual recording devices.
With COVID-19 crisis upon us, many key corporate executives are now working from home. This has necessitated the need across the country for knowledgeable and experienced technicians, with state-of-the-art equipment, to conduct sweeps of the executives’ homes.
Here’s the problem:
I can count (on one hand) the number of legitimate bug sweep professionals that have the training, expertise and equipment to perform technical surveillance counter measures (TSCM).
But, there are dozens of fakers and pretenders masquerading with “magic wands” they bought online. These cheap detection device can only detect a fraction of these illegal devices, if any.
If you’re looking to hire a professional to perform a bug sweep service, be very careful and investigate the agencies you are considering.
You are better served to do nothing than to have someone who has no conception of the necessary analysis, imaging and techniques required prior to providing you with a “clean bill of health”.
