A covert listening device, more commonly known as a bug or a wire, is usually a combination of a miniature radio transmitter with a microphone. The use of bugs, called bugging, is a common technique in surveillance, espionage and in police investigations.
A bug does not have to be a device specifically designed for the purpose of eavesdropping. For instance, with the right equipment, it is possible to remotely activate the microphone of cellular phones, even when a call is not being made, to listen to conversations in the vicinity of the phone.
We enhance our counter surveillance services with bug sweeping reviews that are designed to highlight vulnerabilities with modern technologies.
Debugging counter measures
As one of our main specialist areas, we have undertaken such service for UK and overseas Government Departments, Embassies, Major Financial Institutions, Corporations etc.
Whatever the reason to target your organisation, the simplest and most cost effective way for another business/organisation to gather information about you is by the use of technical surveillance, such as planting bugs, phone tapping or computer information theft.
