Eavesdropping threat briefings

QCC can deliver FREE eavesdropping / TSCM threat briefings to either government officials or company directors / executives or CSO’s / CIO’s or Security Managers. These briefings will enable the audience to clearly understand the threat of eavesdropping / espionage, where it comes from, how it applies to their organisation, what can be done to mitigate or manage the associate risk and last but not least dispel any speculation, myths, smoke and mirrors about how bugs work and how they really can and can’t be detected. At the end of the briefing the audience are welcome to ask any questions either strategic or technical and the speaker will happily provide answers.

Eavesdropping risk assessments

QCC can conduct a risk assessment to see if your organisation is at risk from unauthorised eavesdropping attack and if yes to what level. The results from the risk assessment can then be used to plan a targeted, risk based approach to any counter-eavesdropping / TSCM inspection programme which needs to be implemented.

TSCM / counter-eavesdropping inspections

QCC provides a full range of TSCM inspections / bug sweeps to suite all Client requirements and have vast global experience in all of the following:

Buildings
QCC inspect / sweep all types of buildings including offices, data centres, homes, hotels rooms, conference centres, exhibition chalets, factories, laboratories, industrial sites, nuclear sites and Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) controlled sites.

Cars
QCC regularly conducts TSCM inspections / bug sweeps of cars & other vehicles. This type of inspection is becoming increasingly important as executives often make sensitive phone calls while traveling in their cars. This type of inspection will also identify any hostile tracking device fitted to a car which is often a precursor to a kidnapping attempt on the principle or a clear indicator that a covert surveillance operation is in progress.

Jets & aircraft
QCC frequently conduct TSCM inspections / bug sweeps of corporate and government jets. This type of inspection is becoming increasingly popular as jets are often used to host confidential meetings & discussions and are often leased or left unsecured leaving them vulnerable to technical surveillance attack. Very specialist skills and equipment are required to properly TSCM sweep a jet and QCC TSCM teams have the expertise and the most advanced equipment available to complete this task to the highest standard.

Superyachts
QCC conducts TSCM inspections / bug sweeps of privately owned superyachts, chartered superyachts and their respective tenders, launches and support vessels. TSCM inspections of these types of vessels are common practice for QCC sweep teams as they are routinely used to hold sensitive discussions, negotiations and contract signing events. These events are often held off shore in international waters or in tax haven waters where the location of the vessel when the event occurs can have direct relation to the legal and tax jurisdictions which apply to the agreement. Again very specialist skills and equipment are required to properly TSCM sweep a superyacht and QCC TSCM teams have the expertise and the most advanced equipment available to complete this task to the highest standard.

TSCM live monitoring of meetings & events

In addition to its Technical Surveillance Counter Measures)inspections QCC can provide live monitoring of meetings or other sensitive events for their duration. A TSCM inspection and then live monitoring delivers the highest possible assurance that no localised eavesdropping has occurred during the meeting or call. To properly live monitor for all forms of surveillance attack requires capability and processes unique to QCC.

Permanent live monitoring systems

When a permanent live monitoring solution is needed QCC can liaise with the Client to understand the requirements & scope, provide the relevant technical advice and then conduct a site survey and design & install the best solution to meet the Client requirements. Live monitoring systems are often required for Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility’s (SCIF) or secure containers, prisons, embassy’s or other locations where no unauthorised mobile phones or Radio Frequency (RF) transmission equipment is permitted.
