Technical surveillance counter measures

    Why Do You Need To Consider Our Technical Surveillance Counter Measures?

    When it comes to your security, never compromise; invest in a company that goes to every length to ensure your safety. Surveillance equipment is used by security companies, councils and police forces to help keep a specific area safe and free from criminal activity. And while surveillance technology has more than proven its worth in terms of catching those attempting to move against someone, it can often be manipulated to work in favour of the criminal. While we go to every length to make sure that all the equipment that we use hasn’t been tampered with, the same can’t be said for any devices that may already be in place in the area that you’re planning on making your movements. It doesn’t just have to be equipment either; criminals have ways and means of catching you out with hidden devices.

    How Can Equipment Be Manipulated?

    When a piece of equipment has been tampered with in order to catch you out, the term that is usually used is ‘bugging’. Often, these ‘bugs’ are no more than a little chip, which helps the person moving against you to record your conversations or whereabouts. It’s also possible for a criminal to ‘bug’ a room – somewhere they know you’re planning on going. So much as hiding a tape recorder in a draw can be considered an attempt at ‘bugging’.

    What Technical Surveillance Counter Measures Do We Carry Out?

    When it comes to carrying out technical surveillance counter measures, it’s important to leave no stone unturned. When you choose Mobius International, you can be sure that every step has been put in place to ensure that you can carry out your movements without the worry of being ‘watched’. Usually, most bugs planted transmit information through radio waves, so we start our counter measures by scanning the area in question with equipment that has been designed to pick up on the signals emitted. Bugs that don’t emit radio waves are the hardest to pick up. We always conduct a manual search of an area, which will include searching through drawers, cupboards and behind objects for a planted device. On top of our manual search, we’ll also use a range of equipment that will pick up on any abnormalities in the area. For example, we can use ultra-sensitive thermal imaging cameras to pick up on any heat that a bug may be radiating. Furthermore, some bugs may emit a magnetic field or transmit a frequency of sound associated with recording devices.
