Corporate Espionage and Technical Surveillance Counter Measures (TSCM)

Corporate espionage is used to target businesses of all sizes. Companies are becoming increasingly reliant on technology, therefore the risk of sensitive information being stolen or leaked has increased. The potential consequences of corporate espionage include a company suffering financial losses, damage to their reputation, or a loss of their competitive edge. Employees may also have their personal information and credentials stolen, which could be used in social engineering, or to hack into their business or personal accounts.

Examples of corporate espionage include phishing attacks, impersonation of an employee, wiretapping and hacking, and through the use of listening devices or secret cameras. Said devices can be hidden in offices, conference rooms, or even in everyday objects like pens or clocks. Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) is a specialised field that can help protect companies from this risk.

TSCM involves professionals using specialised equipment and procedures to detect these devices and neutralise them before they can be used to steal sensitive information. This may include physical searches of premises, electromagnetic field testing, and cyber security measures. By conducting regular TSCM inspections, businesses can help safeguard their proprietary information and sensitive data from being compromised.
