When it comes to TSCM or what we generally refer to as counter surveillance measures, the idea is to get companies with experts in the field. While there is nothing wrong with this approach, for some of us, it may seem a little bit expensive. There is no easy way to put it but counter surveillance consultants are not easy to hire and a good budget would need to be planned out. There lies a rather less expensive way to bug sweep through your home, vehicle, or office for bugs. Yes! That option is YOU.
Now that we have established that you are somewhat qualified to do a comprehensive sweep, you should not just rush off to go buy all the counter surveillance equipment you can lay your hands on. To even begin you need to ascertain some security risks and probable solutions. The risk factor would have to be a combination of the likelihood, vulnerability, and consequences.
When people speak about the possibility of their homes or offices being bugged, I often raises a question of paranoia. These believe of having spy listening bugs planted tend to increase if the individual has access to certain information that has a high level of sensitivity. This is what this factor is all about as it addresses how possible can the person be spied on with these spy listening bugs. So to fully understand this likelihood, we take two questions into perspective.
1. Who would use spy listening bugs in your house?
· Law enforcement agencies
· An offended enemy
2. How can these spy listening bugs be used?
· Professionally installed by law enforcement
· Less expensive RF microphone that can be bought over the internet
· Expensive spy listening bugs
Now to help better understanding, let's take a scenario out of one of the above. Let's assume you are stuck with a spouse who is just, well crazy! She's suspicious of your every move and wants to get you spied on by a good PI. This would obviously increase the likelihood of occurrence and the cost taken to hire out the professional.
When we speak of consequences, we are actually talking about what you tend to lose if the information gets leaked and if you care at all. So we don't get you confused, let's continue with the scenario we have started with already. Would you be bothered if you spouse gets to know or hear of the things you do when she is not around? Do you even care about how she would feel if she knows?
This tends to look at how easy it is to install spy listening bugs in your home. If you are dealing with a spouse or an ex, do they have free access to your home when you are not around? If they do, this increases your home vulnerability as they would easily plant the bug without making a scene.
As we earlier started with, this is the combination of all other factors put together. Using a scale of 1 to 10, rate each of those three factors and multiply them to get the possible risk factor. While this may seem like too extreme, you would be surprised how it will help save you from seeming paranoid.
