Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM)
Lennon Security Corporation performs and manages electronic countermeasures sweeps (detection of telephone/fax/computer taps) to determine the existence of actual audio and video devices and to determine the client's vulnerability to electronic eavesdropping devices (bugs and wiretaps). Additionally, we can monitor for these devices during high-level meetings (i.e., Board of Directors). We recommend appropriate remedial security steps to prevent future loss of technical or proprietary information.
