Warning Signs of Bugging


Technical Counter Surveillance and Warning Signs of Bugging

The warning signs of bugging are all around us..  Eavesdropping, electronic surveillance, and covert surveillance are all on a dramatic increase and a huge threat to corporations, government agencies and any one who has information that others want. This is due in part to the very competitive business commercial and political environment we live in, as well as the huge profits that the sale of stolen intelligence can bring. On a domestic front, divorce and asset division can bring a potential ex-spouse to bug and eavesdrop on their home to gain an advantage. And finally, high-net worth clients are always susceptible to being bugged to gain information that could be used against them.  The ability to identify some of the signs of covert surveillance can help you to identify and deal with potential threats to your business, reputation, competitiveness and bottom line before critical damage occurs.
