Secure RF Monitoring Environment
A US based research company has a need to secure an area of their offices against mobile phone, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, DECT and RF emissions. Physical security measures were already installed, and the secure area already had a robust TSCM program in place.
The client wanted to have permanent monitoring of wireless activity in this secure area on a 24 hour basis. QCC initially conducted a deep TSCM inspection of the secure area and a survey of the RF and Cellular environment. We then installed one system for monitoring active cellular devices, this system also had the ability to detect Bluetooth and Wi-Fi emissions from enabled devices inside the secure area.
A second system was installed to monitor the Radio Frequency spectrum from 10 KHz up to 18 GHz. Both systems can show the location of the transmitting device on an overlaid floor plan. In addition a point of entry system was also installed to detect electronic devices concealed on the person. This detection system was installed at the entrance to the secure area, and was monitored by the physical security team. QCC are partnered with the manufacturers of these systems and are also registered distributors, installers and trainers.
All the systems worked seamlessly together to give a higher level indication of hostile device activity in this highly sensitive area. QCC trained the physical security team on the operation and use of the systems and also wrote protocols for dealing with device activations on all three systems. QCC increased the frequency of full TSCM inspections within the areas to counter the types of technical eavesdropping attack that the permanent system could not detect.
The systems have provided the best possible permanent technical solution available, and, coupled with our world class TSCM inspection service, the client has achieved the highest level of assurance available.
