Before we conduct a TSCM sweep, we have a meeting offsite with the Client. The purpose of this meeting is to establish the following:
The level of threat
This level of threat will vary from LOW (off-the-shelf consumer spy equipment) to HIGH (custom-developed sophisticated kit that is not commercially available).
It is important to understand the history of a building or the target area in order to consider the possibility of recording devices having been planted during construction or forgotten by previous tenants.
Ease of access
Information is required about who has access to the sensitive areas of the facility; and how target areas are secured from the illicit placement of new devices.
Based on the above information, the equipment and personnel required for the TSCM sweep will be selected and sent to your premises.
