Corporate Eavesdropping used to be the somewhat covert art of over-hearing conversations and then either communicating that information to others or using that information against their employer as leverage. Today, we find that the once used methods of placing your ear to a wall and struggling to hear information has been replaced with electronic eavesdropping. But wait, in a corporation we always thought that eavesdropping and monitoring conversations was only limited to our competition or rivals to steal valuable trade-secrets, sales plans, client information, and so on. That’s still true and very real but now, not only do we have to protect our information against those outsiders but now the insiders, our own employees!
TSCM America® has investigated many cases that actually turn out to have insider employees who will do almost anything to obtain information. Here are a few examples of real eavesdropping investigations we have worked involving in-house employees:
Risks to Corporations
Public Company Information – employee steals insider information to pass-along to another company or uses that information for financial gains.
Disgruntled Employee – obtains confidential company information or personal information against a company officer and threatens to use that information to harm the company or company officer.
Sexual Harassment – employee may use covert methods such as hidden video, pictures, or audio.
Methods of the Eavesdropper
There are literally endless possibilities that the eavesdropper can use and all can be serious and cause harm to a corporation.
- Small Covert Voice Activated Recorder
- IP Camera with Audio
- GSM Bugs
- Wireless RF Bugs – Audio/Video
- Rouge Wi-Fi Hot Spots
