Clients want a clear and defined process to protect their information
Protecting your Intellectual Property
Confidential Communications Guarded
Providing a TSCM Survey is perhaps one of the most important steps in the TSCM Inspection process. We listen to our clients and understand the scope of the project and what the client’s goals are before we begin. Our TSCM survey outlines the steps that will be taken during our TSCM Inspection and a clear path towards mitigation and resolution. Corporations have increasingly directed resources and training into protecting their network infrastructure against cyber-attacks to prevent the many forms of security breaches and hacks. However, most often overlooked is the threat or more alarmingly, the ongoing technical eavesdropping attack from a device(s) designed to capture communications, images, video, and data. Companies must realize with technology continuously evolving, their corporation, government agency or themselves may be under attack from simplistic eavesdropping devices to the more sophisticated. Organizations must be diligent in their efforts to guard against the threats of eavesdropping devices within their offices, boardrooms, conference rooms, c-suites, executive residences and vehicles. Other critical locations are off-site meeting rooms and hotel rooms where a company may not have complete control to provide adequate security over the space to ensure it is free from electronic eavesdropping devices. The Office of National Counterintelligence estimates US corporations are experiencing hundreds of billions of dollars in losses because of economic espionage. Alarmingly, many companies don’t realize the root cause of this loss, is a result of illegal technical surveillance, both generated from external adversaries to internal threats such as employees.
The TSCM Survey
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has stated, “There are two types of companies, those who are hacked (technically penetrated) and those who will be.” Companies must understand they have a fiduciary responsibility to their employees and shareholders to protect their verbal communications as much as they do their internal computer networks. Having a solid technical surveillance countermeasures program in place, with the highest-grade technical capabilities along with a qualified vendor partner such as TSCM America, is the path to risk mitigation and due diligence.
Conference Room Bug Sweeps
TSCM America will perform a full TSCM Survey and Inspection for all your conference rooms for potential eavesdropping devices.
Off-Site Meeting Bug Sweeps
Off-site meetings are critical to survey and inspect prior to meetings as you have virtually no control over the room.
Boardroom Bug Sweeps
Boardroom TSCM surveys and inspections to ensure that all of your communications and discussions are kept private.
Meetings and Bug Sweeps
Meetings whether internal or off-site must on a regular basis be TSCM surveyed and inspected fully.
Risk of Compromised Information
If information is compromised, you could suffer significant loss of income from lost business, as well as possible legal ramifications for failing to secure that information. It is also important to consider that such a breach could irrevocably mar the reputation of your company or agency in the eyes of existing and potential clients, your shareholders, and the public. Just imagine what damage one video or audio recording device could cause if hidden in a conference room.
A TSCM Survey conducted through TSCM America is a huge step in mitigating that risk!

Who Performs These TSCM Surveys
Wikipedia gives an excellent definition of what TSCM means and the understanding; TSCM (technical surveillance countermeasures) is the original United States Federal Government abbreviation denoting the process of bug-sweeping or electronic counter surveillance. It is related to ELINT, SIGINT and electronic countermeasures (ECM).
The United States Department of Defense defines a TSCM survey as a service provided by qualified personnel to detect the presence of technical surveillance devices and hazards and to identify technical security weaknesses that could aid in the conduct of a technical penetration of the surveyed facility. A TSCM Survey will provide a professional evaluation of the facility’s technical security posture and normally will consist of a thorough visual, electronic, and physical examination in and about the surveyed facility.

We are a mid-size advertising corporation that felt confident that our conference room had some sort of listening device planted within the room. We contacted TSCM America to sweep the offices and sure enough they located a small radio audio devices about the size of a quarter in a plant next to the table. Great work and fast response!
