TSCM also refers to bug sweeps, sweeping, debug and debugging. Our team has highly trained and educated TSCM Specialists with 30+ years of experience with the right equipment and certifications for the job. Not just anyone can do TSCM work it requires a true professional, and we work with only the best in Canada to ensure not only the newest and most up to date technology but we require all investigators who do bug sweeps have all the necessary and available training to always be up to date and informed.

What Can Our Team Of Experts Do To Help?

Our team provides sophisticated, customized technical security solutions and effective counter surveillance strategies and programs for assignments of any complexity or threat level whether they include single or multiple locations anywhere in Canada or internationally. We deal with each area separately and coordinate all services required while significantly reducing travel costs, equipment problems, and many other unique issues associated with international or distant travel operations, managing the entire process. Each individual assignment will have its own unique environment and circumstances that will dictate the scope of work and approach. Do not be left in a vulnerable position with no clear direction.

Our services have no hidden or added fees such as initial consultation charges. All fees for services are included in our flat rates, so you know what your cost will be up-front with no surprises. All phone calls and questions both before and after any services performed are provided at no extra charge.

Clients will contract TSCM services during high-risk events such as confidential meetings, during times of labour negotiations, legal matters, personal circumstances, or business deals and acquisitions. Others will also conduct periodic inspections as a matter of due diligence. Businesses should also consider TSCM services after building modifications (new constructions or any activity that provides relatively unsupervised access to a target location).

Possible signs of compromise may include:

  • Other parties are aware of confidential information
  • Information during private meetings or conversations has become public
  • Your activities are known to people when they shouldn’t be
  • Static or popping sounds on your phone lines
  • Noise from phones that are not in use
  • Tones or high-pitched sounds heard when the phone is picked up
  • Televisions or radios begin exhibiting interference
  • A break-in has occurred, but nothing is taken
  • Electrical and light switch wall plates have been tampered with
  • Gifts from vendors, customers, or friends, or strange objects appearing without your knowledge
  • Drywall or ceiling tile debris is visible on desks, tables or floors
  • Ceiling tiles are broken or out of place
  • Unknown vehicles appear nearby and remain suspiciously
