Is Your Business Bugged?

Is Your Business Bugged?

Increasingly, individuals such as competitors, ex-employees, new start up ventures, and deceitful individuals are using electronic bugging or software for mobile devices as a method of gathering information that could severely damage your business and/or personal life.

Bugs“, which are telephone taps or video/audio transmitters, are readily available to purchase and can compromise your confidential business and personal information. In North America, the manufacture, sale, monitoring and installation of these devices encompasses a multi-billion dollar industry. Despite the widespread use of bugging technology, it is a criminal offence to record or surreptitiously intercept the dialogue of two or more individuals without their consent, unless you work for a law enforcement agency and have an order or warrant for a wire tap.

Why is Counter Surveillance Important? 

There are many reasons why organizations have the desire to spy on each other. It is difficult to statistically assess how often governments, industries, and individuals are victims of illegal and unwanted surveillance. Evidence of surveillance is often suppressed to avoid publicity or, in some cases, alerting the spy. Most organizations are unaware that criminal surveillance has had an effect on the success and mission of the organization.
