Debugging services are offered by businesses and security contractors which specialize in TSCM, also known as technical surveillance counter measures. This practice is commonly called bug sweeping, bug detection or bug removal. An electronic bug is a colloquial term for concealed a listening device or hidden video camera that can be employed for a variety of purposes in a surveillance assignment.
This article explains how to ensure that your home or workplace is free from electronic surveillance that can compromise safety, privacy and success.
What are Bug Detection Services
Debugging generally involves scanning the subject’s home, office, vehicle and personal property for evidence of infiltration by electronic surveillance devices. Bugs can be very high-tech, tiny and effective for spying on a person and documenting their actions and conversations, as well as their geographical location. Debugging will uncover all current threats to privacy, as well as identify all possible security threats which could be exploited by bugs in the future.
This service is a vital part of the private security sector, as well as corporate security contracting, and is also sometimes employed during litigation or other private investigation assignments.
Offering Debugging Services
Bug removal devices and experts rely on a diversity of technologies to locate all potential sources of enemy intelligence gathering equipment. The most common modalities used include:
Examining cell phones for evidence of tampering or having been scanned.
Examining the living and working environments for evidence of surveillance equipment or human operatives.
Examining vehicles for hidden listening devices or GPS tracking devices.
Forensic examination of computers and servers to ensure no tracking cookies, viruses, spyware or malware are harbored within.
Interviewing known associates, family and co-workers for evidence of human intelligence gathering.
Debugging Services Work
Debugging is a very real service offered to combat a very real problem. Surveillance is a growth industry, which now affects virtually every person in developed countries. We are all subject to the prying eyes of private and municipal intelligence gathering devices and agents. It is simply impossible to hide from the all-seeing eyes which are all around us.
While most of these surveillance techniques are designed to protect us, some may be used as competitive intelligence weapons against us, in life, in court or in business. Do not take chances with your personal information, conversations or actions. If you suspect that you may be under surveillance from known or unknown sources, contact a private detective for more information about effective counter surveillance measures which can give you privacy and peace of mind.
