TSCM Sweeps in the Real World

wire tapping, bugging, electronic countermeasures
Have you been bugged?
There are several TV shows today that portray to uncover wire tapping, placing listening devices in an office, intercepting communication, check ones location by their cell phone, listen through walls, plant devices and listen from miles away. TV also makes it look as though it can be performed on the fly with no planning and preparation at all. In the real world, these task can be accomplished, but not without much reconnaissance, planning, technical ability, and know how.

At Advanced Technology Investigations we get called out to homes, offices, and large corporations to conduct TSCM sweeps to look for attempts to eavesdrop either because of a key employee that has left a company or has been terminated, or a discovery of intellectual property leaking out to others, and many other reasons one may feel the need to gain an edge with someone else’s information. In today’s world, eavesdropping isn’t just performed by placing a listening device in a room or placing a recorder on a phone line. The growing technology capabilities that the average person has access to today can cause a lot of damages to a person or company if used in an illegal ways to spy on a person or company. In years past a TSCM professional wouldn’t think about a computer or a cell phone as a way to bug someone, but with the rise of spyware companies all over the internet it is a common tool used by persons illegally to bug your personal information in order to gain an edge or harm you.

When choosing an Agency to conduct a professional TSCM sweep, be sure you do your due diligence on that company to make sure you know what equipment they will be using, if any of their Agents have backgrounds in electrical systems, telephone systems, and someone who is a certified digital forensics examiner to check cell phones and computers for spyware, keyloggers, remote connections, and hacking intrusions. Leaving out checking of cell phones and computers can leave a possible threat in place after spending a lot of money for this professional service.

If you feel your personal or confidential information has been compromised or you would like a security assesment to help prevent this from happening to you or your company, give us a call and schedule an appointment with one of our TSCM professionals to discuss your needs.

Below, we have put together some FREE online tools in which anyone can use to help you with your own research that may save you money with your case. Please note that any online website that says FREE, is most likely old data, but depending on what you are looking for, it may reveal exactly what you are looking for.

Often we forget about some of the simple lookup tools, like www.whitepages.com. White pages is a great tool to do a reverse address, reverse phone search, and it gives you other bonuses like other persons listed at the address, and an age range.

The next tool our Greensboro Private Investigators recommends is the website www.zabasearch.com. Zabasearch is a little more comprehensive in the results it returns, and it has an advanced search function in which you can be specific with what you are looking for. I have found that zabasearch returns results that can be very useful such as date/year of birth, address, address history, phone numbers, and middle initials. Even though the results are similar to White Pages, you get a few extras that can give you more solid results. Below is an example of what you will see with a search with zabasearch.

Google Search Tips

Google Search Tips – How many times have you conducted a search on google and it returned over a million results? It can be quite frustrating to pick and choose from those million results to find what you are looking for. Today, I’m going to give you some google search tips to help make your task much easier. At Advanced Technology Investigations we conduct internet searches most every day using advanced google searches as one of our many tools to quickly find useful information in the coarse of our investigations.

Google searches have many algorithms that return results depending on what you plug into the search box. The more you can tell google about what you are looking for, the better the results that will be returned. Think about the things that are going through your mind as you are thinking about your search, also think about the terms that may be similar that you may want to NOT show up in your results. Google will allow you to be as specific or as broad as you want to search, so with that in mind lets look at some terms and methods to help get your search targeted.

“office supplies greensboro” When you want to narrow down a search to give you broad but defined topic try putting your term or phrase in parentheses.

Site: office depot.com – If you only want to search a specific website, then start your search with the term “site:” in from of the website you want to search.

sticky notes site: officedepot.com– Now include what you are looking for in front of the word “site:” then include the specific website you would like to search from.

related: starting your search with “related:” will return results related to the word or phrase of your search.

link: If you are looking for a link to get you to someplace specific, just add “link:” before your search term.

phone: john_doe – Looking for a phone number of someone on the internet, no problem, just use “phone:” before the name your looking for.

intitle: A specific title can be easily found with the function “intitle:”

cache: – Cache is a page that google took a snapshot of on an earlier date that may show you information that may not exist on the website today.

+ – Putting the plus or minus sign in front of your search term will exclude words using the minus, and include all words with the plus sign.

left or right – Adding the word “OR” between two words can be useful if your trying to find out which similar term will return the most relevant results you are searching for.

I hope this short tutorial will make your searches on Google much more productive for you. Here is a link from Google that can help you remember some of the most used advanced search methods to assist you. http://www.google.com/advanced_search
