What is a Bug Sweep?

Bug Sweeps | Bug Sweep ServiceBug Sweeps, or technical surveillance counter measures (TSCM) sweep, are a physical and electronic examination of a survey area to detect and locate surreptitious electronic eavesdropping devices. During a ComSec LLC bug sweeps, both transmitting (active) and passive (non active) electronic eavesdropping threats and devices are detected. Multiple analyses are performed by skilled, experienced and well trained specialists. They use variety of laboratory grade equipment to perform multiple signal analyses to detect various types of electronic eavesdropping devices. Radio frequency (RF) spectrum analysis, camera detection, non-linear junctions detection, Wi-Fi security analysis, IMSI catcher detection and many other examinations are conducted to detect a full range of illicit eavesdropping devices.

Our bug sweeps also include a Cyber Bug Sweep which detects electronic eavesdropping devices that use Wi-Fi, BlueTooth or a cellular network to record, store and burst forward the collected information. Depending on the type of device, cyber bugs may also be turned on by the eavesdropper to provide real time eavesdropping capability. Likewise, spyware/malware on mobile devices and computers can be exploited for cyber eavesdropping purposes. Our bug sweeps also include detection of vulnerabilities in networks that can be exploited for electronic eavesdropping purposes.

Once the bugging devices are detected through signal analysis, then the threat device(s) is physically located and the threat is addressed. Ultimately, professional bug sweeps detect and address surreptitious devices, identify electronic eavesdropping vulnerabilities, and equip you with information to help protect your valuable information and privacy going forward.

Learn About Our Specialists & Our Equipment

Separating Truth From Fiction

Does eavesdropping require large or complex bugging devices?

No, it does not. Bugging devices have evolved. They are now small, and most are very easy to use. ComSec’s bug sweep pros detect large and small bugging devices. A ComSec bug sweep will also detect simple to complex bugging devices.

Are listening devices only used by government agencies?

Foreign countries, corporate spies, competitors, executives, spouses, family members, neighbors, and other everyday people also use them. Our bug sweep experts detect a wide range of listening devices.

Do listening devices cost thousands of dollars?

No, not all bugging devices are costly. The cost ranges from very expensive to just ten dollars. Many police grade bugs and taps are available to the public at very low prices. A professional bug sweep can detect the expensive and low cost devices.

Know Your Adversary

Who is Targeting Your Business or Home?

The truth is, eavesdroppers come from many walks of life. For example, an eavesdropper may be a competitor, an employee or a business colleague. Also, a company or executive residence may be targeted by a foreign national or foreign government. A reporter, private investigator or extortionist may target a hi profile individual. And, a spouse, ex-spouse or romantic interest may seek personal information. A neighbor may also target a private individual.

More specifically, eavesdroppers may be motivated by money, legal issues, emotions, fame, etc. But, they all want one thing – your valuable information!

Business Eavesdropping Targets

Unfortunately, businesses may be targeted for trade secret, confidential or sensitive information. For instance, competitors may want advanced knowledge of your sales strategy or contract negotiations. Likewise, a foreign national or nation may want to steal product or process information that will allow them to replicate it abroad. And, an activist group or a disgruntled employee may want to collect damaging information. Ultimately, a ComSec business bug sweep will help stop leaks of your trade secret and proprietary information. Click here for our corporate bug sweep page.

Residential Eavesdropping Targets

If you are an executive, your home or corporate apartment could be targeted for corporate information. Likewise, a former spouse or current romantic interest may target your home for personal information. Even politicians, celebrities and hi profile individuals may be targeted by tabloids, news reporters or profiteers. Why? Simply because private and damaging information is freely discussed in your home. In the final analysis, this is why a professional home bug sweep is important. Click here for home bug sweep page.

Can I Detect Bugging Devices With My Own Bug Detector?

In general, it is very hard for untrained people to locate listening devices. Why?

Do You Know What Bugging Devices Look Like?

Bugging devices can be very small and may be hidden in every day objects that are normally in your home. So, the bug may be hiding in plain sight.  For instance, bugging devices may be hidden in furniture, wall clocks, pens, calculators or other items. Your electronic devices and technology services may also be compromised.

Do You Have Bug Detection Expertise?

Often, bug detectors that are sold to the public, alarm on any type of electronic device. If that happens to you, how will you be able to tell if your bug detector found an actual listening device? It takes the right equipment and expertise to locate eavesdropping devices and vulnerabilities.
