Technical Surveillance Counter Measures (TSCM)

TSCM (Debugging)

 This  year the FBI reported a 200% increase in the number of industrial  espionage cases that they worked. One FBI report to Congress stated that  American businesses loses are $100 Billion a year to foreign spying. He  reported that FBI investigations revealed that 23 countries actively  engage in economic espionage activities against the United States. Other  sources testified that they knew of 51 countries targeting the United  States to include several of our allies. Additional information  indicates that it is not just the “Super Companies” that are targeted.  Middle  size to small companies are targeted four times more often, and the  main reason is that they are easier to penetrate.  Private sector  bugging has exploded in the last 5 years with the expansion of the  internet.   Individuals now have access to purchasing listening,  recording and bugging  equipment online that they did not have access to  in the past.  There are hundreds of companies selling devices that have  the ability to monitor your computers, mobile devices homes and  offices.  IDRC has certified technicians and the professional equipment  required to competently provide you with counter measure services.
