A Bug Sweep provides "Peace of Mind"

Technology is constantly evolving. The technical aspects of Eavesdropping, (audio, video, cell phones, computer spy ware and GPS devices), has grown and these devices and methodologies are becoming easier, cheaper and better.

Only you know if you have reason to believe whether someone is listening or watching, and if you think they are, then they probably are. Technical Surveillance Countermeasures or TSCM, is also known by the reference of "Bug Sweeps," and the more modern name of Electronic Eavesdropping Detection or EED. We are Certified Specialists in the detection and location of eavesdropping devices.

In Minnesota as in most states, you need to be a licensed Private Investigator to conduct a corporate bug sweep. We are licensed to do so, which allows us to do compete consulting work while protecting your interests. We operate the latest REI counter-eavesdropping equipment and can ensure complete confidentiality.

TSCM Team Methodology

The GBI team has been providing Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) services for over 15 years and have, over time and tested experience developed a complete and thorough method for sweeping a space both physically and electronically.

Scanning for RF signals is only one part of an effective TSCM sweep, a physical inspection of ceiling spaces, walls, outlets, IT & TELCO equipment as well as any conditions that may be present due to architectural or production floor features.

We will visit your site to establish the physical construction of your space, the scope of your needs and provide a proposal based upon what we learn.
