Electronic Bug Sweeps

At Mias Consultants, we conduct technical surveillance countermeasures (TSCM) through the use of specialist equipment in order to conduct a comprehensive investigation of a sensitive area and whether you’ve been compromised.

Thorough analysis is conducted of the electro-magnetic spectrum of the area to detect any anomalies caused by modern spyware devices.

With modern eavesdropping devices being relatively cheap and easy to obtain both in the UK and abroad, you’re more at risk than ever from being compromised by spyware.

At Mias Consultants, we have a great deal of experience helping both private and commercial clients who fear their private communications are under attack or risk falling under attack at home, in the office or in a vehicle.

If you’re worried that an electronic bug has been planted to attack your private communications, a full TSCM sweep will alleviate your fears.

Has your vehicle been bugged?
It makes sense to think that if you’ve discovered your home or office has been bugged, there’s a high chance your vehicle has been bugged too. Vehicles are the place of many sensitive conversations, both in person and over the phone so if you suspect your vehicle has been bugged, it’s essential to call in professionals who can detect even the most clandestine bugs. As well as vehicle bugs being able to eavesdrop on your conversations, many of them will track your movements, giving away your location and leaving you without any privacy.

At Mias Consultants, we understand that the types of technology, methods of deployment and restrictions of surveillance equipment vary widely between different vehicles and location, and we draw upon this knowledge to deliver a proportional vehicle search.
