TSCM Overview

TSCM (technical surveillance counter-measures) also denotes the process of bug-sweeping or electronic counter-surveillance. The purpose of the TSCM service is to search for eavesdropping technical listening devices, hidden cameras, telephone bugging or any technical device that may have been illegally and covertly deployed in a meeting room, office, board room, private residence or a vehicle.

The United States Department of Defense defines a TSCM survey as, “Techniques and measures to detect, neutralize, and/or exploit a wide variety of hostile and foreign penetration technologies that are used to obtain unauthorized access to classified and sensitive information.” A TSCM survey will provide a systematic physical and electronic examination of a designated area by properly trained, qualified and equipped security specialist in an effort to discover electronic surveillance devices. Also called ECM, a bug sweep, or debugging.
